As you may know, I am involved in a very peripheral way with a cool little accessories line called Lollipops. The designer happens to be my daughter in law so I have nothing whatsoever to do with her genetically, sad to say, but I have gotten to take photos for catalogues of her shoes. Today I got to watch while professionals took photos for publicity. There was a lot of sitting around while things got set up, the light was made right, the model’s hair or makeup attended to, that sort of thing. I wish I were at the level to do that sort of photography but I think it would make me a nervous wreck. In any case, here are some photos I took while watching.
Here is the model being asked what she wants for lunch while the makeup lady puts some makeup on her legs. The makeup artist was interesting to watch. She has that edgy thing going with bleached blonde hair with dark roots, some sort of arm warmers on her arms with her short sleeved Tshirt, big baggy cargo pants with all sorts of pockets loaded with the tools of her trade, and funky hiking boots. She sometimes pulled out some small binoculars to look at the model to see if she needed to retouch the makeup. She also carried a tiny little camping stool to sit on as I’m sure that there must be a lot of down time for her. There was a guy there who did the model’s hair too.
Here is the model. Isn’t she beautiful? She actually isn’t French, but German. I knew this when she came up to me, shook my hand, and said hello. She was very friendly and didn’t have that snooty thing going some beautiful women have.
Here is the model doing her thing.
Here is the photographer-a very nice guy, taking a photo of the model.
The camera is hooked up to a special monitor and a computer so you can look at each photo as you take it and see if you need to increase light, etc. I coveted the lenses being used.
