I encountered this scene during a trip to the Byward Market. I’ve been feeling the desire to explore black and white recently, but it wasn’t until just recently in Lightroom when I realized this was a chance for me to experiment. I’m quite happy with the results above!
On a recent studio photoshoot I had the pleasure of meeting the very talented makeup artist Mandi Hutchinson, who delighted us in bringing an array of makeup varied enough to style a rainbow army! This gave me a wonderful chance to explore the domain of the MUA and see what mysteries lay within. As you can see with the three shots below, my curiosity was greatly rewarded!
I love how these images begin to offer a level of understanding of the makeup artist’s capabilities and value while also highlighting how little a non-makeup artist knows about each of the specialty tools above. Every item has a purpose, you just might not know what it is! I enjoy the way our brains try to make sense of scenes of complexity like these.
