Natural Beauty Headshots

Recently I had the pleasure working again with my friend, Erica.  For part of our shoot, we did headshots. 

Normally, when I work with a model, there is a very careful makeup application, by the model or a makeup artist. The hair is carefully set. In these images, Erica is wearing no makeup at all and she didn’t fuss over her hair. The pictures, to me, have a natural, informal and intimate quality.  The compositions are, purposefully, very simple.  As I often do, I was shooting from fairly close in, with the camera about 3 feet away from her face, to connect the viewer to Erica. I did very little editing in Photoshop, to maintain the natural feel of the images. 

Let me know what you think, by email of comment on the blog.
