If it isn't obvious, having a talented makeup artist on staff is a godsend. Not only will she help existing clients feel much more confident while posing in front of the camera, it will help tremendously in post production. I have always believed getting it right in camera is extremely important and the message applies to more than just exposure. I would be lying if I said I knew anything about makeup and techniques on applying it, but I can tell you when I see a makeup artist execute a good look and a bad one. I can say with confidence, Ashley is extremely talented. The session we had this past weekend says it all.
Did I mention that she is an amazing model as well? Join me in welcoming Ashley Pelico.
So say we all,
PS - All shots were taken with the Godox DE300 monolight as the key light with the Phottix Luna octabank.
