THE FOUNDATION OF BEAUTY
The art of creating a meticulous beauty image has an unmistakable formula. When the nuances of multiple elements come together, you get the perfect beauty picture. Everything from crafting the perfect pose, team selection, the right modifiers, position of the lights, and the settings plays a role in this and if anything is no there, the image falls apart. It all comes together to create magic!
I want to de-mystify and break down everything that goes into creating my beauty images in this blueprint. This 30 minute video is packed with pure information and no fluff. I want you to learn the essentials of beauty photography so you can get in the studio and apply these principles immediately!
After this year’s popular Beauty Experience workshops in Europe and North America we are looking to share our passion and knowledge of the beauty industry to a wider audience and make it accessible from your devices at home. No matter if you shoot beauty or not, these principles of light can easily be applied to any genre. The moment you understand the basics of modifiers, and lighting setups that go into each setup is the moment you can break out and expand on that by involving your own creativity in any scenario.
I’m beyond excited to finally be able to offer a downloadable course to those of you who have been asking! This video has been crafted from the demands of my students and believe you will really love it!
