Model : Rochelle Cadiente
MUA : Macy Aguilar
Hair: James Nualla
Location : South Forbes Golf City
I pitched this idea to our MUA , Macy, about a theme using sugar and candies as makeup a few months back . But due to conflict of schedule with the model plus Macy's vacation to the US , we were able to do the shoot only last weekend. At least it gave us time to prepare and do some research on what materials to use for the makeup.
For this photoshoot , I used a 100 mm f /2.8 macro lens. Getting this close calls for a lens that will at least give you a little distance from the model. This lens is sharp ! And I wonder why I didn't use this lens on portraits as well aside from macro/close up photography.
We also had to consider the model who will work for us on this project. Fortunately we were able to get Rochelle or 'Chie' to her friends . A critical nurse by profession , this former Miss Earth hopeful was really a trouper . She did not complain even if some of the sugar crystals were irritating her eye already.
Chie is a very talented young lady. A model, writer and a very good singer !
You can check her do an acoustic cover of usher's ' U got it bad '
