Photo shoot with Zurina Williams

Model Photo Shoot: Zurina Williams

A few weeks ago I did a photo shoot involving a very pretty young lady named Zurina Williams. This time the theme was ‘faux freckles’, meaning that freckles were drawn onto the face of the model by the makeup artist, in this case the talented Tanielle Seauw. We did two looks; the first one a ‘natural’ look and then after that a more colorful version with heavier makeup. The focus was on taking portraits showing off the creative talent of the makeup artist. Towards the end I also briefly brought in my Guy Fawkes masks since the model is a fan of Anonymous (as am I).

As with the previous photo shoot I did, I continued experimenting with the lighting for most of the shots, going for a dark setting with a more dramatic look. I also tried some ‘harder’ lighting on a white background. All shots were taken using a Canon EOS 5D Mark III paired with the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM lens — mostly used wide open at f/2.8 (because fuck yeah).

You can see me in action on the model’s Instagram profile (swipe or scroll to see more pictures and a video).
