Photography Studio Essential | Faux Floral |Forest Spirit Photoshoot

Faux florals are so essential for a photography studio.

If your set or photoshoot feels a little plain or stale: add florals.

Florals add life to a shoot. Yes, even dead flowers add a special touch.

One of the best things about florals in the photography studio is that they give something for hands to do.

Tired of models not knowing what to do with their hands?

Given them a bouquet of flowers to hold. Let them run their hands through vines. Have them cup petals.

Head out to the thrift store or your local art supply store and grab some florals for your studio!

This cosplay of Sabrina from The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was such a great way to spend the afternoon!

This wedding dress from the photography wardrobe was perfect for a Dark Baptism and was a great fit for a Sabrina Spellman cosplay

This shoot was also the perfect time to shoot with the old Nikon DSLR and test out the studio’s new SD card reader, which transfers raw images from the DSLR right into my phone for editing!

Floral Photoshoot | Blue Fantasy

Makeup is a very important part of portrait photography, especially boudoir and glamour photography.

Not that a model must have a full face of makeup on, but that the makeup can make or break a shoot, as well as have shooting concerns.

📷

This eye makeup is very bold, and needed a light, bright set. When shot against darker backdrops, the makeup looked much more harsh, as did the photos themselves.

Mysterious moody portrait photography

Harsher makeup can still be beautiful, it just may not fit the theme of the photoshoot.

Darker makeup needs a brighter light/set to cut harshness.

An overdrawn lip may look disproportionate at certain angles and perfect at others.

False lashes may only show up in certain angles.

As we do our makeup or provide direction for the makeup artist, we must keep in mind the set, the theme, the mood, and the angles.
