Photoshoot “Lisa”

Back in the end of March or beginning of April, Wouter and I worked together for another photoshoot. This time, we had a model that Wouter brought in, Lisa.

We planned things a little bit last minute and since I have a lot going on with work etc., I wasn’t able to prepare and plan a lot involving the makeup. What I knew was that Lisa wanted some normal photos without the crazy makeup, and after that Wouter wanted to do something with rigid collodion.

That’s what we did! The makeup changed and was added during the shoot, we really used the try-error-change something-try again- method.

Sidenote, it was definitely about time that I downloaded all the retouched material and upload something on this blog.. The delay? Don’t even remember..

Anyway, this has been added to my portfolio. All other fun had been recorded through Instarainbow *click*, because I have actually captured snapshots of what I did lately. The official publications on here are coming soon. Not promising anything ofcourse πŸ˜‰

Face charts through Instagram

Last week I discovered this guy’s instagram and I love his charts!

Today I spontaniously decided to go paint one on my face. Excellent way of spending me-time! πŸ™‚

The light is terrible, I know, but it’s nighttime here in the Netherlands.. I tried taking some pictures with my phone, which was not a great idea because the quality of them is not good in low light. Then I got the EOS out and I had to look up in the camera and into the lights on the ceiling to get a proper image of what the makeup actually looks like.

I’m not too happy about the poses, but I can’t have everything, especially on a last-minute occasion like tonight.

Enjoy!

For those of you that don’t know my blog yet: This is my very first photoshoot. The first one that is actually something.Β I did makeup on one shoot before (see portfolio) but this is my first time modelling. It was so cool!

So how did this happen?
I met Wouter a couple of weeks ago through other friends, and well, I talked about this blog and my passion for makeup, he looked at the blog and agreed on collaborating soon πŸ™‚

Around New Years he sent me a link to a photography competition and asked if I had any awesome ideas.
I did this makeup a yearΒ ago for the first time, it was very rough and it desperately needed a redo+normal photos instead of webcam photos, but I hadn’t really gotten to that point yet. Which is why I hadn’t even posted this on here.
This was the perfect oppertunity! I sent Wouter the webcam picture and he was happy, so, I sketched and changed a lot of things, actually, but, yes, the end result is very satisfying πŸ˜€

Wouter built up his gear in my living room and we were having a lot of fun shooting this. It’s very interesting to see all the different ways you can change a photo. Lights are so important. I also understand that with just my DSLR, I will not be able to create masterpieces like these photos on my own.
The good news is, next time I want to go paint myself on a weekend, I’ll call Wouter to see if he has time!

This is what my living room looked like

In short, I’m superhappy and this definitely calls for another shoot sometime soon. I would appreciate it if you could check out Wouter’s website and support him. Checking out the contest would also be pretty cool.
The most important part was having fun with it though. That is the purpose of the competition, to go Get your Gear out, go shoot, go have fun! And for that, I’m really grateful.

Thankyou for all your positive reactions πŸ™‚

Love,
-M.

Driving home for Christmas

IMG_6107

It was a bright and early morning when I left the city. This picture is taken on the road from the station to the highway and I loved it.

I go back to my parents’ pretty often, though for the holidays I brought my camera. That way I’m now able to present the latest version of my wall painting πŸ™‚
To be honest I don’t even recall what I did most recently, I suppose it’s the darker green colours in the front.

Most importantly, what I want to show you today is this:

Remember when my laptop died? Did you read my complaints about my computer not being able to handle photoshop and other programs that require a beast type system because it’s too old?

Well, I saved for a new system and decided to assemble it myself, since it’s cheaper and a lot of fun! I built my own computer!
The picture shows my happiness after the first round of testing if I installed things correctly. I did, since the message on the screen was exactly what I wanted to see. That was earlier today πŸ™‚
Tomorrow I’m expecting the last part to arrive, which is my optical drive, that wasn’t neccesary for the first part of assembling, I can just pop that in tomorrow and it’ll be fine. Unfortunately, tomorrow I’ll be gone for a shopping trip (that’s just too bad πŸ˜‰ ) so I’m going to install my Windows on Tuesday, along with all the other basic things.
For those of you that are interested, I can make a seperate post dedicated to the new computer system. If you’d like to see that, let me know in the comments.

All of this is very good news, because with this new baby, I will be back to video editing within a few days! Hooray!

Oh, and ofcourse, we celebrated Christmas for three days with the family here.
I hope you all had a great time, even though it’s such a forced social event.

OH!! Did you all see the new Star Wars movie yet? GO SEE IT!
I went as Leia! πŸ™‚
