Test Shoot with Chicago Models
I love beauty photography, and really enjoyed my test shoot with Chicago models Nichole (signed with Factor Women) and Tara. We worked with one of my preferred makeup artists, Bianca Sansosti, who did an absolutely flawless job. Our hair stylist, Lauren from Visions for the Art of Hair, is another of my preferred artists, and also did an incredible job.
For Nichole, we wanted to achieve fun, sexy, lively, and even had Nichole flipping her hair around during the shoot to achieve this. For Tara, we kept the overall emotional inspiration as sultry, calm, yet sexy. Our backdrops were simple seamless paper for part of the shoot, and bed sheets for a more boudoir look. Each of the lovely models brought clothing from their own wardrobes.
For lighting, we used a one light set up with a deep parabolic light modifier.
