Kids Beach Fashion Photoshoot

Its such a pleasure to shoot with these lovely kids. They are just so so cute.

We are asked to do this shoot from a company in India. They found us on the internet and loved our work.

So on this front we were very happy too. I decided to break the shoot in to 2 separate parts. One on The Palm Jumeirah at sunset. The client sent me some photos of a kind of dream state backlit subject so I thought that would be ideal. In fact it was as I caught them perfectly.

We just love working with children. After nearly 29 years from my start of loving photography. I have mastered the key elements of getting the best from my clients. No matter how small they are!

I guide them in a way that they don’t really know that they are being asked. I let them play and capture them at their most natural.

This is really when you get the best shots . Have a look at these photos and tell me what you think? We would love all your input.

These kids are so beautiful and look so good in the clothes. The client was  so very happy with the shots as its shows his clothes off so lovely. In fact its so lovely to see the boys wearing pink.  They are so sweet.

Our sister company The Lipstick make Up Institute pampered the kids. They put lipgloss on them. Gel in the boys hair and make them feel like little film-stars. We had a video made too so they felt really special.  They were so cute. On the video the kids had to shout, ” We love One Friday”. The little one could not say it properly. Was so cute, honestly. Makes one want to get married and have my own!

Have a look at these beautiful pictures.

Behind the scenes of the desert shoot for The White Sensation

Working in the fashion industry as a makeup artist, or model, or photographer you will always have some great locations to work at.

This was the case yesterday. The Lipstick Makeup Institute the sister company of YH Studios was participating in this great project to provide hair and makeup services.

We were lucky as the model was gorgeous and very talented, the location was just perfect, the designer dresses really unique and edgy so the whole team was just wonderful to work with.

The main theme was to create an energetic, stylish and sexy style for the Sensation Party which will be held in Dubai in November.

We all know the Sensation is one of the biggest happening in the party scene because of its shows and a wonderful atmosphere on the whole event.

We were working on 10 different outfits and different locations.

We all know the its July and desert. It was 50 degrees outside  but we did it. The poses, face expressions, the hair and makeup should be perfect not because the whole team is very professional but because these images will be the marketing material for the White Sensation Party. Was a huge work and not easy to be 10 hours outside in 50 degrees, but when you are working with real passionate people this is not a challenge, maybe it is but we did it!!

Lets see some awesome behind the scenes pictures so you can get a bit of an impression about the whole concept.

The first outfit:

Preparing the model

As we can see the first outfit and the whole styling is very feminine, the hair and makeup is basic just to enhance the models natural beauty.

Lets start!

How to get the best from your Phone Apps. Tip 3

 

Get the best from the App Perfect 365 tip 3 on day number 3 of my secrets to achieving that flawless  look.

Lips

This is a wonderful too. The Deepen smile tool is great for enlarging our smile.

Whiten Teeth tool is fabulous if the light has not quite managed to hit them and make them dazzle so this tool will! But once again, don’t over do it. If your teeth are normally extremely white then its ok but if they are just a shade lighter then just gently use this tool.

The Lipstick tool is great to add a bit of colour to make your smile appear brighter and also the teeth as red lipstick will always make the teeth appear whiter. The only problem with this tool is that the mouth has to be kind of centre to the picture as it pre set to the app so if your face is  not centred and you add the Lipstick tool you might end up with a moth shaped lipstick on your cheek!

Contouring tool 

I love this tool, If you have just been shot at the wrong angle and your face looks slightly plump then you can slim it down with the slim face tool.

You can lift your cheeks too but don’t do it too much as we will look silly if our cheek are right under our eyes and they are not usually!

My favourite tool in the contouring is Enhance The Nose Tool. It casts a shadow which can slim the nose and cover bumps and lumps we don’t want to see. I have a small bone on the left side of my nose which is prominent when I turn to the side and I dislike it so this tool disguises it. Tool, I love you!!!!!!The sample is a pictures taken in the morning last November when my nephews and nieces were visiting.

Here are a few examples of where these tools are perfect.

Example one now look at example 2 the skin looks so fresh and smooth without being over done! You can see that I don’t look so tired. I love this tool!! I also opened my eyes a little bit as they seem smaller when you smile.

How to get the best from your Phone Apps. Tip 2

Tip Number 2 on how to get the best from your APPS.

We are still on Perfect 365.

This app is just so incredibly flattering its very addictive, as I said yesterday its just like having a make up artist in your phone. Now, I find it difficult to NOT use it! But i just have that kind of personality, VAIN Ha

On this app I use the tools for , skin, eyes,  lips and contouring tools.

Today I am going to talk about the skin and Eyes tools and tomorrow the Lips and Contouring tools.

Skin tool

I us the Brighten Tool and the  soften skin tool, it removes blemishes. I find this better than the blemish tool. The only problem is that people just over do it and I cannot stress enough that, Less is More! I see images on Facebook all the time and people look absolutely flawless and like they have just been airbrushed to the MAX! Its too much guys. Gently does it. We are Not Plastic people!

Eyes tool

I use the Circle tool, which is fabulous is you are looking slightly tired and its difficult to overdo this tool as it doesn’t really allow you too.

The Brighten tool which brightens the whites of the eyes but be very careful as its so easy to overdo.

Finally the Enlarge tool. Sometimes we squint on images especially if we have a big smile on our faces so this will make our eyes appear very small so this tool is perfect but once again do not overdo it as themes are a major feature on our faces and if you alter too much then it will not look like you, you will just look weird!

Here are a few examples of GENTLE Editing, nothing too extreme.

The one of me with the sunglasses on is a PERFECT example of very

gentle editing but can see that it kind of gives you that polished look.

How to get the best images using photo editing Apps on the phone

Good afternoon everyone.

My friends always tell me that my pictures look great from my phone and even when we are out and we all take pictures they whatsaap them to me then I will edit them and send them back to them, my work never stops ha!!

I use 3 different Apps that I find very easy and simple to use. Sometimes when we over complicate things we get confused, even me who works with images and editing every day of my life!

Each App I use for a different purpose.

Today I am going to talk about, “Perfect 365”.

This is a fantastic app for smoothing out blemishes on the skin and generally just giving a little brightness to the face. Its like having a permanent Make Up Artist in your phone.

Here are a few  examples of my images that I have used it for, my skin looks kind of flawless but without being too plastic.

Its so easy to over edit but you have to take a step back and don’t go too over the top. Just remember the saying, ” Less is More” !

Example 1 is the original shot. Example 2 is my edit using Perfect 365 and Example 3 is just how NOT To Edit, its far too much.

Please let me know what you guys think.

Tune in tomorrow for some more examples!

SECRET number 8: How to pose correctly to always look your BEST!

Well the best secret ever and always is the best tip I can give you all.

ALWAYS shoot from above!

When i train photographers in the studio. I get them to do a shoot and I edit their shots and I can tell immediately from looking at the image the mistakes and the classic one is that they always shoot from below and shoot upwards. Now unless you are a supermodel and are creating a Vogue front cover then this is not going to work with the average person.

Doing  this will always always give the person a fat chin, neck and fat everything unless they are super skinny!

I am always conscious of this and its not such a bad thing as pictures are always memories! You will hide any double chin or any imperfections of the neck! It in fact makes you stretch the neck out so giving the impression it is longer than it is and also with gravity makes your wrinkles push back and stretches the skin on the face making you look younger! TRY IT, it really works!

IMG_6408 IMG_7370 IMG_7646

SECRET number 7: How to pose correctly to always look your BEST!

Final Tip on Posing is to LOOSEN UP!

7. Loosen up.
Unless you’re a professional model, which rules most of us out! odds are that most of the photos you find yourself in are fun, casual shots with friends. As much you think “posing” for these types of pictures will make you look better, the fact remains that loosing up and having a little fun will almost always make for a more flattering snap. Since you’re not trying as hard, there will be less room for error.

Basically its a continuation of my tips yesterday. Relaxed and natural always captures the best shots. I have got some fabulous shots that are casual but with a little arrangement from me they always look like they have been put together but I ALWAYS think about the composition. Its in my blood, I can’t help it.

As I said yesterday, memories are EVERYTHING.

Always think about a shot before just taking it. You will get better each time you take them and you will love the fact that you can think quickly as how to arrange people. Its a marvellous tool but as I have been a photographer for over 25 years sometimes I do wish I could give my brain a rest, but I CAN’T!!!

Here are some great example of casual shots but the composition is spot on.
