Every once in a while, we’ll have one of those photo sessions where we get a broad spectrum of looks from our model and make-up artist. Our session with model Marissa P. and make-up artist Jazzmene was one of those sessions. We started off with a girl-next-door nude make-up look (with a hair fan thrown in for good measure). From there we moved to a high key beauty look with Marissa’s hair pulled back and tight to her head. Then the hair came back down and we added a men’s white dress shirt with two different lighting scenarios. Gorgeous natural North light and a studio set-up. From there a ballerina sequence (Marissa was a dancer) again shot first in natural North light then with a different studio light configuration. Rounding for home, we had Marissa in several gowns as we shot a Hollywood 30’s/40’s noir look, finished in both color and b&w. Our last look almost didn’t happen as we intended on shooting this look but had forgotten to include it and the participants had all packed up and were leaving when we remembered. We had a beautiful blue scarf, which Marissa wrapped around her head and we placed her against a jet black felt in front of the natural light we have streaming into the studio.
