The mess during a make up session

The image today is slightly different from the ones I would normally like to present (I generally love Fine art photographs). This was taken from a very recent event I covered in the Eastern part of Nigeria. So in a sense it ties in with the image I present yesterday.


So what was the techincal background behind this photograph? Well firstly it's important determine what and what you want in focus before you take the shot. In saying that I wanted the main subject, the lady in the mirror and the make up pieces on the bed to be in focus. The best way to do this is to make sure that the distance between the pieces on the bed to the mirror is equal to that of the mirror from the subject.


Oh and I used a flash facing the subject with a 1/2 CTO yellow filter to give it a warm look.


That's it! 


Any questions?
