Makeup Preparation for our Model -Michaela

Hey guys, as you can see we have my model, Michaela here. Have a look at her face; everything is looking beautiful. My makeup artist, Abbey Sidorow, has done a great job in doing her makeup. We’ve got a specific image that we’re going for, so this should be a lot of fun.

Abbey Face-Painting (She is a true Artist – not just a makeup artist)

I wanted to show you a little bit about the preparation that goes into photographing a model. It’s not just getting a beautiful model and having her pose for you. There’s quite a lot of preparations to be done before we even pull out our camera.

Location & Lens Choice for Best Images

I brought Michaela outside the studio where there’s some green foliage in the background.
I’m using a 135mm f/2 lens, which has a very shallow depth of field. That’s what I wanted to capture. I want Michaela’s eyes to be in focus, but the rest of the face to be out of focus.

Changing my Angle of View

I’m getting her to lean forward and look up at me. I’ve got a little stool that I’m standing on while I photograph her. I’ve also photographed her with an 85mm f1.8 lens.
