Lovely Lauren

I needed to test some new apertures and couple them with lighting techniques this week.  I found a lovely model called Lauren willing to help me out and of course, my sweet Billy to help with make up.  Ive a number of submissions and test coming up and everyone has to be orchestrated quite tightly, given time scales and logistics.  Lauren was scared to death on arrival as this was her first assignment.

Here is Billy touching Lauren's base make up

 But with Billy and I being so laid back, she soon warmed up.

These were the best of the bunch.  We shot a combo of "one strobe in studio" and a grungy, urban setting with natch light (my fave).

My stock of frilly skirts always make an outing on a shoot - Lauren really worked well with it.  I love her in her Beanie hat.

And this is my very favouritest of the bunch

I'm chuffed to bits with the lighting and make up AND with Laurens performance.  Its a team effort where everyone;s participation and contribution make up the full story.  My creative team love how quick I go from shoot to post production to finish (usually 24 hours but 6 in this case) but when you have a model whose skin is perfect, there is little you need to do for basic retouching.

Thanks to
Billy Jo Simpson, MUA
Lauren McParland, Model.
Oh and Tom (Laurens brother for helping with lighting)
Jo (Laurens Momma) for being the coolest mum ever.
