There are several factors that we need to put together in order to create a beautiful picture like the one on the left (click the image for a larger version). We start with thinking about the concept, then we hire a model, a good makeup artist, a style director and of course the photographer.
But with the years, and after many photo shoots, I have found that not only the right elements make a good shot. There is a connection needed between the elements that has to be achieved… a certain “chemistry”. And I found that the best pictures are accomplished when this chemistry is present.
As a good alchemist would say, ‘you need to try many, many formulas to find the one that will give you gold’. For this image I found the perfect formula: the beautiful model (my friend Tatiana), the talented makeup artist (KayMua) and the style of Glendalee Gómez. And most important, the good chemistry that was made since the beginning and that present during the whole process.
