Shooting with Kate

Candy Lips
I did a short shooting with Kate from the Student Bar for the DPChallenge contest Selective Desaturation. I got the sugar strands from Tesco and some lipgloss from Boots – I had to ask for assistance though, as I would almost have bought nail polish by mistake. As the gloss was quite sticky it was not a problem to get the strands to stick to Kate’s lips. Putting them on was a bit messy, but I don’t think Kate was that annoyed that she had to eat some of them :)
Above is one picture from the series, the one I submitted to the challenge. I used natural light from a window and cardboard covered with kitchen foil as a reflector from below. In retrospect setting the aperture to F/1,8 at 50mm might have been a bit too shallow at this short distance, especially when it is crucial to have both the lips and the eyes in focus, which rather limits the vertical angles from which one can shoot.
