PhotoYou

Tuesday, January 31, 2012
These behind-the-scenes photos of a shoot date way back... almost a year in fact. I had forgotten all about them because as usual I never got to see the end product of the shoot :(

Anyway this was a simple shoot for PhotoYou, a photography magazine managed by Reader's Digest. If I'm not wrong this is meant to appear in Autumn 2011? If any of you happen to be/have a photography enthusiast in your family who might have bought it... LOL.

So yep this was a half-day shoot and it was just supposed to be a simple photo to accompany an article about... flash photography? Or something like that?

Since it was supposed to be natural/stock-photo-ish (like the kind that accompany articles of love/work/health/etc in e.g. Cleo) I could wear my own clothes!

Photographer in the background. This was not long after I had DIY-ed my hair orange hahaha.

Makeup area! Bulbs not lit.

I had to be taught how to hold the camera in the "proper" DSLR way because at that point I had zero prior experience handling them before. Big, bulky, expensive alien-looking things.

Tried out different colour background + top + hair combinations in case! I don't know which was picked/preferred but I personally think the hair down ones were better!

Sending off some sample, unprocessed shots to the client.

This was so long ago that I don't remember very much about it... I just know that it was quite short and that I had worked with the photographer before for a L'Oreal editorial (if you're an older blog reader you might remember it's the one where I had a stye on the day of the shoot haha).

Hope everyone had a good weekend! Mine was so hectic which was why I didn't blog earlier :( 
I have a 6-hour school day tomorrow and still so much to do first now :(
