Beauty makeup shoot with Elin F. and Christina C.

Model: Elin F. at stockholmsgruppen, makeup Christina C.

This was a rather straight forward project, aiming to fill our portfolios with classical beauty makeup pictures. I usually follow the same procedure at this type of shoot where I devote the first frames to getting something that’s safe and we know will work. After that we go a bit crazier as the shoot goes on. Here we finished of with me pouring flour all over Elins face. I’m glad I did because it gave my absolute favorite pic of the day.

Some behind the scenes pictures, two more final pictures and a little BTS story after the jump, click the link below.

Elin is truly a great model, I’ll let the pictures do the talking regarding her looks, but I feel obliged to mention that it was her idea to use extremely shallow depth of field in the last pictures. It was one of those moments when you know there is a very simple detail missing but you can’t put your finger on it. How great isn’t it when you feel like that and the model, who happens to be rather interested in photography, just nails the missing detail. I mean sure I’m an artist and as such I should annoyed when someone hint’s to me how I should do my job, but this time it was a salvation.

I went for rather different styles or tones in the retouching and I don’t think that they benefit from being displayed next to each other but I guess I have to succumb to this medium. Here are the other two final pictures:
