High Fashion photoshoot

I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot two professional models Sarah and Rachel on Friday. Our make up artist was Shirley who created some stunning work just the look I was after for our shoot.

Two locations were chosen for the shoot. The first was the new second visitor centre at Botanical Garden and the second is the old army camp at Tanglin. Like any other shoot, preparing the models sometimes can be a challenging depending what the models look like during the day. The make-up process can usually take some time. After agreeing on the look and style we like to achieve, we found out that we are missing the nail polish to match the dark cherry lipstick colour on the model to complete the transformation. After much searching and working out a few sweat running around, I found the nail polish at a nearby pharmacy.

For the first location, I wanted a glamorous look for the models wearing dark cocktail dresses with high fashion poses. I initially shot one model at a time whilst the other is having her makeup done. When the two models were ready rather than the typical glamour shot to shoot we opted for something different which is about girlfriends having a fight. It worked wonderfully well and the expression on their faces explained it. We thought about posing as mannequin but it didn’t quite work out.

In the second location, I chose a deserted formal army offices to shoot the elegant models in colourful print dresses against rustic backdrop. There were many buildings that I saw on the drive in but this particular building was large, abundant and wasn’t locked. It has many rooms, the paint peeling off from the wall, the ceiling falling apart and some of its windows were broken. It was just perfect for the shoot.
