Workshop:

The interplay of Light and Make-up for Hair & Make-up Artists & Photographers

in studio, 7 hours + lunch break, 4 participants

Understanding how light works on a face is highly beneficial for both people photographers* and hair & make-up artists. In portraiture, the direction of light helps to translate the shape of a face into a picture just like the make-up does by adding contours and highlights. The interplay of make-up and the light’s structure results in texture. As all these factors depend on each other and a mutual understanding leads to better team play this workshop is designed to bring photographers and hair & make-up artists into a dialogue on set. We will set up different light situations and see how they look with a variety of make-up looks to learn from each other.
*including fashion, beauty & lifestyle

"The workshop was very instructive and for me, as a make-up artist, it was interesting to see how different lighting conditions affect the make-up look. I learned about the light setup as well as the functions of a camera. The topic is interesting and also very extensive so that I became curious about another workshop."
