500px Photo ID: 129106385 - Unsure for the best title for this shot, especially since it was not planned or extremely thought through while taking it.
I was invited to a little party a bit after Halloween and this face with this makeup/facepaint made such an impression I had to ask her If I could try to take a good photo of it.
So lots of cool colors around and I used a wall with a great red glow to use as a background and a catchlight for her portrait.
to get a give a bit extra sharpness, kick, contrast and quality to the image I used a flash which I bounced of the ceiling.
There was a blue light close to my feet which also could be used as somewhat of a fill light and an extra tone.
I understand not everyone likes skulls or skeleton costumes.
for me if it is done in a way in apprecition for the amazing structure in our body, the complexities and beauty inside i like it. but if the focus is death, horror, and gore Im not a fan at all.
I found this was a case where it was strikingly beautiful.
Also I chose Red White and Blue as a title since she is norwegian and these are norways colors!
not just USAs but as well as britain, south korea, France, australia, the netherlands and many more.
I hope you guys enjoy the shot
