Another in the series of images of @holly_mj… with makeup by Geeta Singh… This is one lighting setup that I was REALLY wanting to try but don’t have the gear for. Luckily enough at Studio 304 it was no problem. Basically took to giant V-Flats (read as two 9’x4′ pieces of foamcare that are taped together to make a V) and placed them on either side of me at camera, stepped back a little with a longer lens and BAM. We create the image below.

Another in the series of images of @holly_mj… with makeup by Geeta Singh…For a majority of this shoot I played with strobes here there and everywhere… after I while I looked up at the skylight and *facepalmed* a little bit. Without that skylight I wouldn’t have been able to create this awesome image:

One of my favorites from the shoot. I would describe it as casually fashion-esque. Yes people, that’s what we’re going with.

Until next time.

Strike me dead and call me Sally! I’ve COMPLETELY neglected to mention the Makeup Artist whose skills have completely made this whole shoot shine/matte what have you. Geeta Singh is a wonder, if you every need someone on set to make everyone look absolutely fabeau she’s your gal. Can’t wait to call her once I get another one of these shoots lined up.

Holly, thought it silly putting her first name up there as how would the talent scouts find her then? So I changed it to her twitter handle @holly_mj.
