New year, new tips… makeup for Boudoir Photography

and new haircut (no more cleopatra) and new pic and new website! did you see it? I caved in with the flash.
I decided I am going to share more tips and blog more. Brace yourself.

I heart my time lapse setting on my camera. Too much fun. And here its a time lapse on how to do makeup for Boudoir portraits. And me with no make up. Was thinking on why have my naked face in my blog but I guess since I do not have other samples might as well use me. And black and white is a little bit less harsh.

Video- warning it has music- just in case you are reading this in the middle of the night and the volume of your computer is turned up high (you know what I mean)

And the results in action- well a portrait. On the left is my un-retouched photo. Which is not so bad considering I can barely see my freckles and mustache. I love my 50mm lense. And the angle looks like I have cheekbones instead of just cheeks.
