The Beauty on Blue - Glamour fashion photo shoot
While shopping recently at a department store, I came across a shiny silver Calvin Klein dress that I fell in love with. I know that may sound odd considering I am a guy, but I always have photo ideas floating around in my head, and knew this dress would be perfect for a glamour fashion photo shoot.
I showed my make up artist, Mayra Gomez, the dress and explained to her look I was going for. She did applied a glamour make up look with silver and blue shades to compliment the dress. Mayra did an amazing job and created the look I was going for perfectly.
I wanted to include a few strands of LED rope lights to the photo shoot. I had the hardest time finding these lights anywhere in Las Vegas, the city of lights. Imagine that.
If you are not familiar with LED lights, they are cool to the touch, very small, and extremely bright.
I really liked how bright and colorful the LED lights looked in the dark studio. That made me want to try lighting the model with only the LED lights and not a strobe.
That is exactly what I did in these last two shots. The background is lit with a strobe, however the only lights on the model are the LED's.
The model did a fantastic job posing with the lights near her face and not looking directly at the LED's.
I really like the extreme highlights and shadows the rope light give. I definitely see myself working with LED rope lights again in the near future.
