As a photographer, I am a whim to the subjects who find themselves in front on my camera. I am in awe of the power that comes with the combination of subject, light and composition all within a tiny viewfinder. After upload, I try not to do a ton of editing. So last week, I challenged myself. Meet Angel. Her portrait series is below. What started out as a simple portrait session turned into something incredibly fun. I knew Angel was beautiful and confident but she took direction so well, so we played around and I am so pleased with the outcome! I also have a knack for makeup, and I tried a new trick using a reddish orange lipstick directly on Angel's skin to even out her tone. See the tutorial here. I find this technique is not just great for dark circles but really works for contour and balance too!
