Today I assisted Sonya Hurtado, it was a very exciting experience and I met some very interesting people. The most important part of the day for mr to watch was how she sat down with the hair, make-up and clothes stylists and went through the different categories they wanted to sort:
They spoke about the types of make up of how they were going to create the fresh ethereal look, with the shimmery eyes, face and body, along with the natural make up. They discussed how the lighting would effect the make up. Zoe suggested that the make up in the image examples shown would barely show up with the lighting. This meant that the make up would need to be more exaggerated in a fairytale way.
Sonya was very thorough of what she wanted and obviously had visuals in mind, she wanted to create emotions of freedom, love and passion.
It was really interesting how she communicated with the models. The models would also put forward their ideas, with the experience of modelling they'd had previously. Sonya would tell them to create movement which resulted to more motion in the images.
Overall it was a very exciting experience and I hope to do more work with Sonya.
