photoblog image Natasha


This is a portrait of a model used for a fashion Jewellery shoot. In this shot I'm trying to show the natural look of the make up done by the make up artist, Taina. Obviously the model is very photogenic but also the make up is done very well too.

Lovely awesome shot as a portrait, Question, what is this particular image for?
Jide Alakija: It was one of the first images that we took for the jewellery customer. It's going to be part of a series of images used to sell the jewellery in the shop.

Your trademark portrait. Very well done, Jide - love the crop.

p.s. was this one of the shots meant for the jewelry shoot? asking cos all the jewelry here is out of focus.
Jide Alakija: From what I understand the jewellery doesn't so much have to be in focus, it's the mood of the shot that sells the jewellery, kinda like how you have sex selling shaving cream these days, you just see a logo that goes with the cream.

Stunning all round - the model, the makeup and the finished shot. They are going to be a very satisfied customer if they're all of this quality.
