J'aime les roux | Beauty in bearing red. Only two percent of the population has red hair. Two girls found me from Develop Models with red hair and dear sun-kissed freckles. I wanted to portray a contrast between abstract makeup and an irreverent “Rogue vogue" attitude along with another revealing a more traditional beauty with almost no makeup.
Challenges always arise and on shoot day. A makeup artist confirmed then didn't show up. You have to stay cool and find solutions. So I asked another who was eager to work and with a short delay she showed up. Both girls worked well under my direction.
The reaction has been positive. My approach to my work is getting noticed by editorial and advertising clients I want to share my approach with.
My favorite part of any project is the subtle build of excitement as you see what you pre-visualize come together with the team. It's especially rewarding when the models are excited about the work while I don't even know what I'm looking at anymore.
This personal project will be submitted to a select few cultural and beauty webzines.
I would say to anyone creative, let go and find a stopping point. And if you like what you've done you failed. #NicoleS approach is irreverent to the condition. Mixed continuous HMI and strobe to grab onto an attitude. #cosmeticrevolution #urbandecay #360scene #photographylife #beautybreach #youthculture #kissbyfreckles #streetsylye #bullocks #lipsfordays #deathbyred #DevelopModels @ellohype @spoonxello @ellophotography @ellostyle @ellofashionphotography
