Sarah is an incredibly talented makeup artist who it's afraid to push the limits. Her fantasy and special effects makeup work is imaginative and original. She had an idea for a creature and I completely trusted her. When I saw the makeup, I pulled an outfit from the studio wardrobe that fit the look, then went to setting up the lights to set the mood for this concept.
For the first image in the gallery, I wanted to play off the FX makeup and juxtapose it with a soft, romantic fashion feel. Then I shot a beauty closeup making the creature look like an add for makeup. I thought pulling in the opposites would make for a jarring contrast.
