The weather was so weird that day; sun was nice and warm but freezing in the shadows with a nippy little wind. Natalie braved it and rewarded me with some stunning images. ^_^
This is quite some time ago so can’t remember too clearly. But if i have to take a guess from the images, did a basic smokey eye with black eye shadow and then a sweep of Ralo red eye shadow over the lid. Made use of Kryolan LP631 on the lips with a coat of Sparkling Raspberry from the Smashbox Peepshow Lipgloss. [ love that gloss, such a shame it’s part of a limited set 😦 ] To finish it off I added a pair of Eyelure Naturalites Evening lashes. For her hair, just a very plain straightening job with two red clip-ins.
The weather was really nippy, so every now and then Natalie would run to a sunny spot, warm up, and return to pose like a pro. Still can’t believe she managed not to look like a ice cube. The shoot was done at Dorpstreet Square in Stellenbosch. I mounted my Speedlight on a tripod and had an assistant who carried it around. Since I didn’t have any light modifiers for the flash yet, I made use of a small silver reflector to diffuse the light. It gave a nice crisp, directional light, which I used in combination with sunlight in some of the shots.
