Rick Nunn – Project 50 – Milk & Honey

50 photographs – over 50 consecutive days – all shot with a 50mm lens = Project 50. 100% awesome.

Rick is one of my favourite photographers, though he regards himself as a designer with a passion for photography rather than a professional photographer. If you take a look at his Flickr and his website you might take my side and view him as the camera wielding guru I do.

2011 sees Rick working on his third project 50, and I was lucky enough to be invited to take part as the subject matter for day 11.

You can view this photograph really really big here. There is also a wicked video which he does for each photograph where he goes through the lighting setup he uses and as a result of being in day 11 you can see me briefly making an appearance in said[ Read more ]

Chantelle models an evening look for a shoot with Luba – a stock photographer. Luba asked for an evening “glam smokey eye”.

Main Make-Up Ingredients: MAC Kohl Pencil in “smolder” , pigments in “dark soul” and “silver fog”.

Pro Tip: With a smokey eye, or any dark or dramatic eye make-up, always apply the eye make-up first and then the foundation after. That way you can wipe any “drop-down” (pigment or eye-shadow falling around the eye or onto the top of the cheekbone) rather than trying to brush it away and then having to re-do your foundation or concealer.

Pho­to­grapher: Shoots Imaging

Model: Chantelle

Make-Up: Samantha Kaye

Loca­tion: Northern Suburbs

Date: 2009
