Welcome to my latest Blog Post
Let me show you what I have created with my team and how I retouched photos for our Beauty Portrait Publication.
Few months ago I put together a creative team with these amazing ladies
- Sandra – Makeup Artist and model https://www.instagram.com/sandra.mendes279/
- Jade – Model https://www.instagram.com/jadevp88/
- Bo – Model https://www.instagram.com/bobohareide/
- Tori – Model https://www.instagram.com/victoria.rubie/
As a result of my growing passion for skin retouching, it was in my plan long time to create beauty portraits for publication in magazine. We spent together all day at my home studio where I had prepared just a simple plain backdrop. I was using my Nikon D750 with my 24-120mm f4 lens. As a main light I was using my good old SB700 external flash in the 120cm Softbox Umbrella from Neewer. For some shots I used a reflector from below just to ease the shadows.
We decided to do this shoot with idea to send the photos to some Magazines via Kavyar – publication website. We finally got accepted to 2 magazines which published our work and we could not be more excited. The magazines were Art of Portrait and Horizont.
For editing and retouching my beauty portraits for publication I have used Lightroom and Photoshop Elements. You can see some of the portraits being edited on my YouTube channel.
Scroll down to see some of the videos here (if you are on the desktop version) and also our final selfie after we finished the photoshoot ! We were really excited, however it was very hard for us to be patient. The reason is, that the photos which have been selected to be published, had to stay exclusive. Therefore, we could not share any on our website or social media pages.
Most importantly, if you are a make up artist or a model and would like to work with me I am more than happy to hear your ideas and requests. Please, contact me on my e-mail or via contact form and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
I hope you enjoy reading this and scrolling through the photos, please let me know in the comment below.
Have an amazing day
