Comments Off on Eyelash Salon Photo Shoot
I spent this afternoon capturing images for my stock photo portfolio in an eyelash salon. My desire in creating stock images is to capture real people in normal situations, and photographing a model getting eyelash extensions fit nicely with this goal.
I used my typical location lighting setup consisting of numerous softbox equipped monolights. Even though I brought along four lights, the combination of natural window light and small shooting space meant that I only used two of the lights. For the sample shot above, I have a 36″ octabox just to the left of the camera and a 48″ octabox placed to the right and away from the camera providing fill light. The window light is coming from behind the camera.
I’ve got a dozen or so images from today’s session to edit and add to my portfolio. It will be interesting to see how much demand there is for eyelash extension photos.
