Exotic Shoot

Hey guys!
Not too long ago I worked on a photo shoot with the Poteat Image Consulting Team. This time we were able to shoot with a good friend who is also a professional plus size model. Go curvy girls! Have you seen her on QVC? She regularly models on the station. How cool, right?

For this shoot, we took a bit of a fantasy route. The creative director was amped about leopard spots and turning our model friend into an exotic feline creature. Here's a layout shot of some of the frames we got on the shoot.

I would love to be credited with the design of this look, but I can't. This awesome look was created by Sushi1114 of YouTube. That's what tutorials are for right? ;) I designed a black and white feline look, but our creative director, Mr. Poteat didn't feel it was wild or colorful enough. He favored Sushi1114's look over mine. I'll recreate my look for you guys soon as I really liked it.

This is also the shoot that convinced me that I was in love with Bobbi Brown's stick foundation. Doesn't her skin look flawless! The look was also created with the use of some NYX products. NYX's jumbo shadow pencil in gold was used to fill the leopard spots. NYX's Goddess of the Night mega shine lip gloss was used on the model's lips.
