In early April I got the chance to work with one of Jamaica’s most well known makeup artists, Sue Gregg, for the first time on a Beauty Photography test portfolio shoot. We also, at the suggestion of Sue brought aboard Tracy-Ann Drummond of Kimmy Nails who did the nails. I enlisted a first timer to beauty shoots, the beautiful Sabrina Williams as the model for the beauty session and fellow photographer Jamie Barnett as my assistant. I used the simple clamshell lighting consisting of a Paul C. Buff AB800, Fotodiox 5-in-1 silver reflector and added a Nikon SB-910 behind the model as a background light. The night before the shoot I converted a very tiny bedroom into the studio for the day but was still able to use my favorite beauty lens the Nikon 70-200mm 2.8 which I attached to the Nikon D800. Here are the photos from that great session!
