Beauty Shoot with Hanna

I have been lucky enough to work with Hanna a few times over the last 2 years. We met on a TFP swimsuit beauty shoot in Richardson, TX and we have stayed good friends since then. For this particular shoot, I was asked to come out to the lake and work in more of a natural light shooting scenario.

The Concept, Model, and Location

They beautiful Hanna has stunning eyes that I knew would be the focal point of most of my photos. The black dress styling and make-up were decided beforehand with the Make-up artist before coming on location. We started the shoot around 6:00 pm knowing the sunlight would be dim around 7:15 and finally full sunset around 7:40. We timed the shoot just right so we could catch the beautiful golden light coming from the sun.

What I learned from this Beauty Shoot

Working on a beauty shoot during golden hour brings its own set of challenges. I had to work on the sharp shadows that were coming from all different angles onto the model. I tried to keep Hanna in more open areas so the light would glide more smoothly and evenly over her face. Post processing included white-balance adjustments, and lightening up the images.
