A year ago I did a shoot where I helped my friend Jacqui Daniels Get started on her makeup portfolio with a shoot where she introduced me to Feliz. The shoot was themed to be a very high fashion glam look. It featured a lot of gold and so for the edit I wanted that gold look to shine through so that became a main focus of the editing process. Balancing out colors is always a challenge but what I always find works best for portraiture is to lower the saturation by at least 30 and that counters anything drastic that you do with contrast or the white balance. Other than some basic retouching and softening on the skin all the photos really came together

Commercial fashion photography requires a great amount of collaboration. Designers, makeup/hair artists, models, and Photographers are all bringing there own creative vision to the table and being able to make sure all of those things match up on every level. Some times this is incredibly easy other times it can be a like pulling teeth. But over all it can be an incredibly rewarding experience. These shots that I did for Fatally Feminine Designs were the algamation of Joy (Model) Aubrey Roybal (Designer) Emilie Norris (Make Up) and myself and over all you can’t help but appreciate the results.
