VIOLET LIPS Portrait photograph by CHRISTIAN JUNG

DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
VIOLET LIPS

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Portrait photograph

INSPIRATION:
I love photographing fashion models and to collaborate with make up artists. Most of the time we have to work according to other people's ideas, like art directors, editors and clients. When I thought of having a nice beauty portrait to promote my website I invited artist Bianca Duarte to join me. We selected a model and decided to go for a different kind of make up. Bianca is so talented i just had to wait till she came up with this art. I chose colored back lights and dark bakcground to make it look like a night club. The inspiration came from night clubs, which are places full of colored lights and where women go wearing heavier make up.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Violet Lips is an image that shows the photographer's skills in beauty photography. Make up and hair by Brazilian artist Bianca Duarte play a very important role on the portrait, as well as the beautiful model Daniela Juchen. It is an important piece of Jung's work because it shows his own style of creating. Beauty photography demands highly accurate photography knowledge and also the ability to collaborate with make up artists. It is also important to achieve a natural skin result so that the photograph does not look fake like many advertising images that are over retouched.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This photograph plays an important role in photographer Christian Jung's career. It is the opening image of his website home page and shows what is the photographer's style. People who visit the website will see Purple Lips along with other previous important works.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This portrait was set on the photographer's website in 2017 and is still on air. It was created in the city of Porto Alegre, Brasil.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Photography and Photo Manipulation Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The portrait was created using a very technical make up and hair art and professional studio lighting. Soft light for the model's face and hard colored back lights bring up a very vivid subject in contrast with the dark background. Main light is a strobe with octa soft box and back lights are two strobes with parabolic reflectors and colored gel filters. It was shot using Canon 5D Mark II camera and Canon 24-105mm f4 lens. Strobes are Paul C. Buff Alien Bees portable lighting. Processing and retouching were done on Adobe softwares Lightroom and Photoshop.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Image was created in high resolution native Canon raw file. Processing and retouching were made using the original size file which is 40 x 60 cm in 240 ppi resolution. After image was ready, it was resized to web resolution of 72ppi on a 1500 x 1000 pixels format.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Research was very important and had different phases. First it was about types of make up that have high visual impact, including color tones and variations of materials that could be used such as powder and lipsticks. Then research was about the professionals to collaborate with and many local make up artist's portfolios were analyzed. After that, research was about skin and hair tones that would work fine with the chosen colors for make up and lighting. Next step was casting. Finding the right model took quite a while and many different models agencies were contacted to send options. After choosing make up artist and model, research was about gel filter colors that would match nicely with the models skin and hair tone. Option selected was Rosco filters for photography and cinematography. Last, but not least, research included pictures of famous nightclubs around the world to see each ones style of lighting and people.

CHALLENGE:
Challenge was to find the right model for the job. It took quite a while and dozens of models were analyzed. Other challenge was to fine tune back lights position in order to have them touching the models hair and body without reaching the front part of the face. We had to create spot marks on the ground for both the lights and the model to indicate the precise positioning.
