A quick glimpse of behind the scenes of the photo shoot for the Fall 2011 Line Look book...
Thanks to the beautiful photography of Jason Robinette and Leslie, the model/muse, and Colleen, the makeup extraordinaire,Marisa, the moral and style support, and Colin, the other intern, the shoot seamlessly unfolded. Sporting brisk autumn rosy cheeks, a heavy brow, and merlot stained lips, Leslie exemplified an equal balance between masculinity and femininity. As Leslie wore masculine makeup in the first half of the shoot, her feminine looks were complimented beautifully, and vice versa as half way through the makeup became more feminine.
Ideal for Autumn, the lighting was moody and unlit, with the exception of a glowing light from the left. This dual contrast strongly complimented the notions of femininity and masculinity throughout the shoot.
