I was recently set the task of shooting fashion accessories for my A-level coursework. Not contempt with being normal and shooting bracelets and necklaces, I hit up a few good friends of mine to help me out with it!



I posted a status asking for someone with tattoo's to do some modelling for me, little did I know it, within minutes, Model Terri Bedford (spirit models [http://www.facebook.com/terribedfordmodelling]) messaged me offering to let me snap her! :D
Then....My friend from work Charlotte Jackson (http://facebook.com/charlottejacksonmua), who just so happens to be an amazing Make-up artist messaged me offering her help too!



We decided on a pop art theme to the pictures, so doing bright, bold makeup allowed me to stick to the theme of fashion accesories, whilst getting some awesome, unique looking photos!



I got to the tattoo studio to find Terri getting some sweet tattoo's on her thighs, so I figured what could be better than photographing someone getting a tattoo when set the task of fashion accesories!



During the time she was getting the tattoo, Charlotte did her make-up!



After she'd got her ink on, we decided the photos would look best against a nice big grey wall in the tattoo studio, and, this was where I started getting annoyed - I think my flashguns hate me! I could not get one decent photo with them turned on, the in built flash on my camera used to trigger the flashguns was having a really detrimental effect on the photos, and in the end, I decided to turn the flashes off, and go with natural light - Best decision of my life!!



Ended up getting some really cool photos which Im insanely happy with!



In post processing, I decided to turn the background a nice deep blue to contrast with Terri's bright red hair, I then fixed up her makeup, bumped the colours up, dodged and burned areas, and some other snazzy things which are too long to explain :)



Overall - 10/10, Im more than happy!

For this shoot, the main intention was to go Pop - arty, which meant vibrant, bold colours, mixed in with pop art painting styles.
The make-up artist Charlotte Jackson did a fantastic job of it!
The photos were originally taken against a grey background, however, I wanted a colour that would contrast Terri's hair, so in lightroom, I made all the grey backgrounds blue.
I had no studio lights at all for this shoot (my regular flashguns decided they wanted to hate me and produced some horrible results) and went entirely with the natural lighting in the room, which in my opinion worked a treat!

Overall, to say this was my first attempt at anything along the lines of studio work, and the first time Id ever worked with a model and makeup artist, Id say that is was a very successful photoshoot!
