Evil Queen Snow White Makeover Photoshoot

I had the absolute pleasure of shooting my friend Ayleigh in a wonderful makeover set up she thought of. Ayleigh is the business owner and make up artist behind The Fantastical Artist and approached me with the costume of the evil queen from Snow White and the Huntsman. The costume itself was of great quality and gorgeous silver brocade fabrics and skull details just like in the movie, with matching crown. The make-up was flawless and required no retouching in post production, Ayleigh obviously takes great care of her skin too! We got some fake snow and a hair dryer, using it to make ourselves a mini blizzard and also used black “goo” for a better word. I loved both the effects, but especially since the queen had the ability to transform into an oily black goo texture.

The post production part of the shoot was what made the collection and finished the images. We shot against a blue backdrop and superimposed Ayleigh into different stock backgrounds and situations to match the lighting and feel of her pose. It took me far too long to get the skills to be able to effectively and realistically carry out the superimposing, reaching out to all manners of tutorials, trial and errors and friends for tips and advice, but we got there in the end 🙂
