Beauty in Bearing Red and Dear FrecklesAugust 31, 2017 | Personal Projects
Only two percent of the population has red hair. Two girls found me from Develop Models with red hair and dear sun-kissed freckles. I wanted to portray a contrast between abstract makeup and an irreverent “Rogue vogue” attitude along with another revealing a more traditional beauty with almost no makeup.Challenges always arise and on shoot day. A makeup artist confirmed then didn’t show up. You have to stay cool and find solutions. So I asked another who was eager to work and with a short delay she showed up. Both girls worked well under my direction. The reaction has been positive. My approach to my work is getting noticed by editorial and advertising clients I want to share my approach with. My favorite part of any project is the subtle build of excitement as you see what you pre-visualize come together with the team. I mixed continuous HMI and strobe to grab a graphic irreverent attitude to Nicole’s condition. Breanna’s approach is naturally curious and inspired movement with continuous HMI lighting to imbue a painterly qualityIt’s especially rewarding when the models are excited about the work while I don’t even know what I’m looking at anymore. This personal project will be submitted to a select few cultural and beauty webzines. I would say to anyone creative, let go and find a stopping point. And if you like what you’ve done you failed.
