Beauty editorial

Beauty Editorial Photography

I recently shot a beauty editorial story in my studio where I tested out my new toy (645 medium format film camera). The camera has auto focus and my favourite type of blur, plus the 16 images per each 120 roll is not so bad either ;) That’s pretty much the main reason I wanted to try it out.
The camera operation was smooth without any troubleshooting, so for now, I guess I will keep it!

Here’s one of the images from the session.

Thank you to everyone involved for making this one happen / kind & modest Melanie Jane (Model), and my talented teammates Windy Chiu (HMUA) and Michelle Davis (Stylist).

I would like to share a recent beauty story where we played around with the theme of "Galaxy".  We opted for airy and spacey elements such as fluffy hair and subtle, but pigmented shimmer.

HNY + First Beauty Session

The other day, we had an opportunity to set up a beauty editorial with the talented makeup artist Sherlyn Torres. For this session, I tried a couple of gobos in my studio experimenting with what type of light shape I could make. I used a relatively hard light to preserve the edge nicely, and tried various objects such as duct tape and table placemats.

Here's the photo created with light shaped from duct tape :)

Make up contest

A while ago, we collaborated with a talented MUA, Paula Lanzador, for her entry for a MUA contest. We ended up doing 4 different make up looks. Each one was a totally different theme and it was a pleasure to see such a variety in creativity.
I want to improve my retouching skills way more, but I need to accept the level that I am at right now.
Big thanks to the model, Isla Hughes and the stylist, Michelle Davis.
Hope you can enjoy the images from our shoot.
Please check out the final 4 images in my gallery page.
