Location: Home Studio, Medway – www.misselisabeth.co.uk
Model: Lois Loren Rochester, Kent
Make-Up Artist (‘MUA’): Maria Bradley Rainham, Kent

It took quite some time to set this shoot up with Lois as I wanted to use a MUA and generally MUAs are busy at weekends with their ‘day job’.  So, I was really lucky to find Maria Bradley who just by luck had some spare time in her schedule and who was also based near to me.  I initially found Maria on Model Mayhem and then visited her website (link above) for contact details.

Maria was brilliant, experienced and professional, and I hope I can work with her again, schedules permitting.  She also does photography so understood the challenges a newbie photographer, such as myself, can be faced with.

I wanted to keep things simple for this shoot as my aim was to use different lighting techniques to see what effects I could create with my equipment – PIXAPRO lights and triggers from Essential Photo.  I used a lighting reference document I found on the Digital Camera World website as my guide.  I didn’t get through them all but the ones that had lighting that I felt would suit the situation I tried out.

Lois was very patient. The make-up took about 45 minutes /  1 hour and the brief for Maria was to use colours which complimented Lois’s eyes which are a lovely greyish-blue.  Lois wore just a simple plain black round neck long sleeved t-shirt, which worked really well for this type of shoot.

I want to thank Lois for her professional approach to the shoot albeit probably boring at times when I was changing backgrounds and lighting set ups.  All worth it though as we got some really amazing shots, however, as the shoot was collaborative I am in the process of ensuing Lois is happy with the shots before I release them.

So, for now, you will have to wait to see the end results….

What I can share with you are a few of the shots of us getting ready for the shoot….

Hope you are all having a great weekend!
