Color Zoom Competition Photoshoot
This year James, Marc and Keely will be entering the Color Zoom Competition, which is such a great competition to expand our creative knowledge and work with new techniques. This year the theme is reallusion, which means creating colour and style that plays with optical illusion; hair that offers surprises the more you look and move the hair.
We searched for a model to bring our ideas to life, a make up artist to complete the look and a photographer to capture it all.
A few days before the shoot we worked on our models so that on the day everything would be in place ready for the shoot.
On Sunday morning we met at the salon to prep our models, using the Goldwell Kerasilk shampoo and conditioner to create silky hair that shined and made the hair manageable – this is so important for a photoshoot because every little detail really shows up. We packed up a kit bag with every tool and product we would need and then headed over to Powerhouse Photography.
At Powerhouse we met our make up artist, Andrea, she created a strong look on our models to accentuate their features and the hair. Despite it being a hair competition it is important to get the whole look right and make up is a big part of this.
We soon moved onto styling the hair while Tim, our photographer set up. We created smooth, shiny hair with a strong silhouette for the first look and them moved onto a second look focusing on texture and transforming the hair into a complete different style, it was great to see the diversity in each look.
It was a really good day working together, swapping artistic ideas and seeing our visions come to life. We ended up with some fantastic shots and our models did a great job, soon the pictures should be ready to send off so fingers crossed for July when we find out how we did.
