A photographer I follow out of Houston Texas recently talked about a workshop on how to photograph glitter body paint. Well, travelling to Houston for the workshop wasn’t exactly in the cards, so I decided to give a couple of friends a call and see if they were interested in helping me experiment a little…
I also talked to one of the best known creative make-up artists in town, Elle Munster, and as soon as I mentioned glitter, she was in as well. 🙂
I wanted to do something in style with my more traditional beauty portraiture and incorporate a little more sparkle. Miss B was our first model and we decided to go with a gold and silver with red gelled lighting to give the first few images a fire-lit look.
The body painting took nearly 2 hours to accomplish and we had a lot of fun creating this series and I look forward to adding more concepts to the series. Enjoy!
