Beauty Shoot with Nadia

Nadia-125-950px-Edit

Last week, we had a fun shoot with Nadia, an aspiring model. In part, these are typical beauty headshots, but with a classic, old Hollywood aesthetic. Nadia’s wonderful makeup artist friend, Averi, helped us create the look.

Please click on each image in the post to see it LARGER and clearer.

In going over the pictures and editing them, I was amazed to see the variety of hairstyles Nadia came up with, without a lot of fuss or muss. Well, in a few of the pictures we went with a purposely mussy look – see the last photograph, below.

With several of the images, we created both black & white and color versions. As shown in the two images above, you can sense a very different feeling in the two photographs. In the black & white conversions, I used Silver Efex Pro, a fabulous plug-in program to Photoshop, that can replicate many old film styles. Which of these two images do you like best? I’d love to hear from you!

Thanks, Nadia, for a great shoot. Hope we can work together again!

That Eyebrow Thing

OK, this post is about more than “That Eyebrow Thing.” But, first things first, be sure to click on each image to see it in a LARGER and CLEARER size.

I recently did a photoshoot in the studio with Megan, an accomplished singer, dancer and actor.  Megan is working hard in the New York theater scene and waiting for her big break. Given her skills, experience and enthusiasm – it’s going to happen soon!

Faithful readers will recognize my style of “beauty” headshots in three of the images in this post. These are great fun to shoot and can be so revealing of a subject’s personality.

So, in the picture above, did you notice anything special? Yes, Megan has that rare talent of being able to raise one eyebrow and still flash an engaging smile. When I coached her to “Just do that eyebrow thing,” she delivered every time. This is one of the more subtle versions.

Here’s a view of the whole Megan, head to toe. Thanks Megan, for a great day of shooting. Here’s hoping these images will help you land that big break gig on the stage!

9-Year-Old Beauty!

Connie-107-Edit-1000px

This week I had the pleasure of shooting with Carmen, a lovely, spunky and smart 9-year-old girl.  She is a talented singer and actor with good genes: her mom is an accomplished opera singer and Carmen was named for her mother’s signature role on the opera stage.

Please click on any of these images to see them in a LARGER and clearer size – on your computer, phone or tablet!

This special young lady has the whole package – looks, charm and ability. She has an audition on Broadway this week and will submit these images when she tries out for one of the hit musicals on The Great White Way.

Carmen has a promising future ahead of her in the performing arts – you can just feel it when you meet her. You Go, Girl!
