Starting my Photography Journey

The art of photography

As a makeup artist, I have been working with models and photographers. Working behind the scenes is a fantastic job and feels great when the results have come out. Being in the glamour industry, I wanted to do more aside from makeup. Other things that I know I would enjoy doing. So, additional to maquillagistry, I sometimes create and designs props and accessories, and also costumes and gowns. Working with photographers most of the time, I now want to be one of them. 

So this time, I am starting to learn the basics of photography with the help of my professional photographer friends, specially from Nymph's Weddings and Events, a photo studio I am affiliated with. I have started reading and "deciphering" some photography lessons from David Boag. Not only should I learn basic photography but also post processing, a procedure used to enhance raw photos.

I got bored last night and played with my babies again. The makeup look was suppose to be strong and bold with focus on the eyes. I wanted to perfect the skin but i was lazy. I found hot pink to be complementary to the eyes. Played with a few scarves and bandanas, angles, emotions, test shots and here's a sample of a fresh and unedited photo I took. I am using a Nikon D3100 DSLR. 

I don't know, I am in love with warm, summery glows and vintage inspired tones. So I made some post processing techniques on the photo and here's the result.

I hope you liked reading this post. It's a bit something different and unrelated to makeup. I don't know, I felt like always posting about makeup reviews was becoming boring so I wanted to do something different, but somehow related.
