Congrats! I loved your idea of this silver 'alien' beauty, but especially the harmonious color tones and the line pattern from her 'aura', lips and eyelashes. The silver tube becoming a sort of light aura around her head, just great.. All in all, coherent, futuristic, minimal and elegant. Great job!

Behind The Lens

This photo was taken in my studio in Vevey (Switzerland). It's a "all black" studio as I like to work my light (and learn....) and I think it's easier to do this with no natural light source and walls painted in black.
This shooting was done in the afternoon of 29 January 2017. This is the advantage of the studio how don't have natural light source, you can work exactly the same during the day or on night!
As the model was painted with silver powder and accessories was very bright I had to adjust very carefully my light to have the good rendering that I wanted, not too light or dark.
This was shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III, an 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens, one Elinchrom flash with Softlite White Reflector and three silver reflectors.
The basic inspiration was the movie Metropolis but also a more futurist continuation of my Silver series with a touch of beauty.
A for all portrait photography I develop the raw and then work with Photoshop. Here I have done speed frequency, dodge & brun, contrast and accentuation.
In my camera bag
I always have my Canon EOS 5D Mark III and a Canon EOS 7D Mark II as emergency device (both with grip), some Canon lens (EF 16-35mm F/2.8 II USM, EF 24-70mm 2.8 L, EF 50mm F/1.4 USM, EF 85mm 1.8 USM, 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM), a EF 2x III extender, 3 Speedlight 600 EX-RT, 1 X-Rite ColorChecker Passport, some Lee, Hoya and B+W filters and off course batteries - memory cards and various accessories. All this holds in my Think Tank Airport Security bag and so I can shoot from both outdoors and in the studio.
If you are not used to working with metallic make-up and accessories take time to try different lights (sets and position but also sources and reflection). Never forget what is your final goal (what you decided to do before entering in the studio) and what you will do (or can do) in post-processing to reach it.
