Gel lighting continues. I read a great article about how subtractive and additive colours work. Really fascinating piece...colours are fantastic.

I met Ana, a London based designer for a quick discussion over a coffee at London Bridge: make-up, available dresses and date. Anar London is a Luxury Womenswear Brand I got Charlotte, a beautiful model from Frame Perfect Agency and Johanna Monti make-up artist on board. I had a good feeling that this session would go smoothly and Ana's two shiney leather jackets would work beautifully with colours, mostly red/orange and cyan.

I planned 45min for make-up and two hours’ shooting time achieving three sets and I was spot on with timing. The make-up was elegantly simple. I didn't want to drive the attention away from the colours.

I do my own retouch to make sure it hits the level I expect on my work. If the hair is messy, it needs a careful edit and it sometimes take up to 4 hours. Phhh. Yes, it's one of the hardest thing to do and it can be really complex: cut background out, replace some part of the background, shape the hair, clean it, fill the gaps etc... Here are the before after set I made for you to compare.

I am really pleased with the result, no matter how mind-bending it is to setup and execute, giving the WoW factor for those final images is always a winner.
