Back in June, photographer, Sarah Silver, invited me back to her studio to shoot some behind the scenes photos for a beauty project that she was working on with makeup artist, Vincent Oquendo, hair stylist, Andre Cueto Saavedra, and art director, Danielle Von Braun. I enjoy shooting behind the scenes photos for fashion and beauty projects, it’s fascinating to see how professionals like Sarah and her team craft these stunning looks.
When I shoot behind the scenes photos, I try to tell the story behind the photo shoot. I document each step in the process as best as I can, but I do it in an artistic way that brings out the passion and enthusiasm that each member of the team has for the project.
On photo shoots like these, each person on set has a purpose. The assistants that set up the studio lights and equipment, the hair and make up artists, the art director, the model, and of course the photographer and her staff, all work towards a shared goal of creating an amazing look for their client.
For this shoot, the team wrapped the model loosely in sheets of tulle, and used fans to give her curly hair, and the fabric, a weightless look. Her make up was subtle but looked vibrant behind the light and sheer fabric of the tulle, this all gave her an ethereal look that looked absolutely stunning.
Below are a handful of behind the scenes photos from this shoot.
