Available for a limited time only, these classes will teach you make-up techniques for a photo series
Make-up often plays a fundamental role in the creation of a photograph. Whether you’re working on a self-portrait, artistic photo series, or fashion shoot, the right look can save hours of post-production work.
We recommend that everyone working both in front of the camera and behind it learn the basics of working with make-up so that they can efficiently solve any problems that might arise on set.
These five free classes will guide you in what you need to know, whatever your studio role.
In this class, from the Conceptual Self-Portrait Photography course, photographer Krishna VR shares some simple tips for doing one’s own make-up. The expert explains how she has learned different techniques online. In this lesson, she advises how to match skin color and avoid a lengthy post-production process.
As photographers, once we are clear about what we want to say and have sketched out our ideas, it is important to determine what we need to start developing our photo series. At this point, we have to plan the different elements of the shoot and see how each of them works within the narrative series. Styling is an important part of the process, which Dara Scully sheds more light on in this class from her course, Introduction to Narrative Photography.
