Another fantastic shoot at Salt Studios in Asbury Park. Elise and Kelly from The Beauty Bar in downtown Somerville, NJ did a wonderful job producing three distinct looks for this shoot for Cleri Models. Yumin was one of the best models I’ve worked with because she had a lot of poses already on lock. You can tell she’s serious about it. The Beauty Bar helped craft three individual looks. Business casual, casual and a high fashion look to wrap it up. Always impressive work from them.
I used a combination of light sources and modifiers for this shoot including ring flash, soft box and natural sunlight. One of the best parts about shooting at Salt is all the natural light that is available. However, if you want to shoot using only flash they have blackouts for the windows. Really handy to create a more controlled environment. Lighting has to be carefully considered when doing a model shoot with different looks. Calling attention to the great work of the hair and makeup team is paramount in tandem with showcasing the model’s versatility and body type.
