Play on Light

I absolutely love trying new things as a photographer!  These photos were taken early this winter in my downtime and I ventured out into beauty photography with a little play on lighting.  These images are bolder and brighter than my norm, however I was determined to push myself into new territory and create something outside of my norm.  Read below to learn about the making of these images.    I tackled 5 new techniques head-on, and all in one photo-shoot!  For the photographers and tech people out there…

1. I tried new editing editing software, and I loved it!   (Capture One Editing Software)

2. I shot with new Profoto B1X lights.  (I’ve been drooling over these lights for over a year, and they are by far the best on the market!)

3. I shot with long exposures.

4. I shot with gels and mixed lighting.

5. And finally, I tested out a new editing technique for skin called frequency separation.  Not my thing but at least I tackled it!  This technique is used in beauty ad campaigns to make skin look ridiculously flawless…   It’s a painfully long editing process, and I think next time I leave it to the pros!!! Anyways, I prefer beauty marks, moles, freckles, and the little things that make us who we are!
