Lighting hair can be done in so many ways and you can find a lot of different tutorial on as well. Well I had a shoot this past week to work on a hair stylist portfolio Erik Satterfield and we had 4 different young ladies to work with.
I used 2 White V-Flats and A 36" Octobox as a main light and then 2 Einstein Lights behind the V-Flats in the direction of the cyc wall. One of my favorite reflectors to use is to use is a Eyelighter Reflector to get a good catch light in the eyes.
Hair, Makeup and Fashion
Do have lingerie that fits you properly and don't wait until the last minute if shopping for new items.
Do wear matching mail polish on fingers and toes or clear polish.
Do moisturize your skin in the morning (do not use moisturizer with sunscreen)
Do your hair the way you like it before arriving unless you booked pro makeup and hair.
Do bring a few outfits to be photographed in. Extra stockings in case of a run.
Do use pantyhose instead of thigh high's for larger legs. Large diamond fishnet pantyhose work great!
Do bring sexy high heels, thigh high boots also look awesome. They can always be returned.
Do shave legs, underarms etc. the night before. If waxing do so at least 48 hours ours in advance.
Do tan to get rid of tan lines at least two weeks in advance if its noticeable in your outfits.
Do bring a man's shirt and tie, guitar, helmet, jacket, surfboard, props etc. Let's Be Creative!
Do bring enough outfits for your session. It's always better to have more than less.
Do bring some fun items like roller skates, funky hats, unique clothing or furry stuff.
Do stretch before you come in so you're as flexible as possible (extremely important).
Don't get a spray on tan, it can leave dark spots in your pores and usually leaves streaks on hand and feet.
Don't drink alcohol the night before since it is dehydrating and will show on your skin.
Don't wear any make up if you have booked a makeup artist.
Don't wear tight fitting clothing to your shoot because it will leave marks they can take hours to disappear, (example: tight bra straps: elastic waistband,; socks; tight panties; or even a watch is a no-no).
Don't be nervous or stressed (extremely important for great images!) and have a blast.
Don't wait to cut tags off lingerie, do this prior to save time.
