Face Paint + Glitter + Feathers

Model: Adaeze Obiajunwa

 One of those feather and rainbow face paint kinds of days! 

While face painting doesn't provide the cure, it at least momentarily helps satisfy my drive to rainbow-ify everything and everyone in my life! I'm a color addict so love using the human body as a canvas, especially one as gorgeous as Adaeze!

Camille, you have such a great blog. I just wanted to ask what camera you use? I love the ethereal feeling your pictures give.

Well that and I'm really looking to buy a new camera with no real knowledge of anything. It'd be so great if you could spare a few moments to let me know what you'd recommend.

Thanks :)

Oh and your dress is oh so beautiful.

Hey Hereiti!
I know it can be soo hard trying to navigate buying a camera! Getting recommendations is def the way to go :)
So about a year ago I upgraded to a Canon 60D, because I'd had my old one for about 6 years and it was feeling it's age, and also because my new one has the ability to shoot film and finally because (and this will seem small but I find it helpful!) when you scroll through the images you've taken you can use a dial, rather than arrows, so if you move the dial fast it plays like a movie! I like this because it helps me see the story that I'm telling with my photos....

If you're starting with no photography knowledge you could get one of the earlier models, and they are pretty affordable now. Having a more basic camera is easier when you're starting out, and then you can invest that extra money you saved into awesome lenses, because the lens is what will really make your images pop!

Other than that I recommend using a photo editing program (lightroom for starting out, photoshop when you get more confident) to get that ethereal feeling, most of the pizazz in my photos I do post shoot :)

Hope that helps!!

That helped a ton!! I was actually looking at purchasing a 60D. I don't have much photography knowledge but I'm looking to enroll in a class to help me there :)

But, thank you so very much for patiently replying to me! I read your blog pretty often and I always feel you must be such a warm and upbeat person to be around. I hope in the future you can do even more model, travel and outfit shots! I totally dig those!

I'm so glad!! The 60D is a rad camera you won't be disappointed :)

And thanks for your gorgeous encouragement and feedback!

Enjoy your new photography adventures!

Sorry to spam you with comments!

But I just had to share this with you-- I ended up getting a Canon 7D! It was actually a surprise gift from my hubby. Needless to say I'm one happy cookie.

Now I'm just excited to the point of shaking trying to figure out all the various features!

WOW! What a man! He's a keeper :p
The best way to learn is to just start playing around, experimenting during different times of the day/when the light is changing/different subjects etc...
But that said I've had my camera for a year and I'm still learning!

HAVE FUN!!

Hey Nicole! Thanks for the comment! I just had a look at your site and it's great to find another fan of face painting! Seriously I loveee it! I only have a tiny kit otherwise I'd look into doing it more full time :) I think using the body as a canvas is amazing and more inspiring than starting with a blank white page lol xxxxxx
