It has turned out to be a wet and windy fireworks night, with most displays being cancelled or postponed but we have a treat for you that should brighten up any dull evening.
A few months ago along with Jo Lofthouse, the most amazing and talented MUA on the planet, we came up with the idea of running a collaboration shoot based upon fireworks. Having met Hannah Whapshott, our model for the day a few times she became our most obvious choice to pull off what was going to be one of our most challenging shoots to date.
Working with UV Body Paint, which really was not of great quality, Jo managed to come up with this fantastic design. We really have to give Jo credit for this as it must have been a huge challenge to work with this stuff and still pull of such an amazing finish,
Lighting was a huge issue but with a few test shots and trying out different things we got the look we were looking for. We lit these most of these images using to Black Lights (UV), A Elinchrom Studio Flash Head & Strip soft box and a blue 50W bulb.
We hope you like this video of the shoot and Make Up...
