Myrό Vitrina | Body Painting Show :: Elizabeth Petrou : “Mourning for Today – Act: 0”

 

  I recently got to photograph a live body-painting show by the very talented make-up artist, Elizabeth Petrou. This was something totally new for me and was really looking forward for this experience. The whole show took place behind a display window so people who were passing by, could experience the transformation of two models into statues. The show was part of the opening for an exhibition of the Greek Marble Initiative on the 23th January 2014, at Myrό Gallery, Thessaloniki.

This happens when i’m bored…

  Something different this time. I enjoy taking photos of myself, i think it’s a lot of fun to experiment and see how many different looks you can pull off. This photo was taken during a day when i was utterly bored, so no it was not Halloween! It started off by me just wearing the hoodie but i thought it was nothing really interesting and i ended up using white eye shadow to make my whole face white and black eye shadow for the lips and under the eyes. I have no make-up supplies at home so i used some leftovers from a halloween party. I decided i wanted to create a creepy looking character, so i didn’t try to look pretty for this one. And that’s probably one of the few photos that i used a slight texture overlay for those white specks you see. I also lowered the saturation, leaving only a hint of color. My hair was actually dyed white back then so that’s no Photoshop. P.s. I really miss my white hair.

Equipment used: Canon 450D, lens: 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, Canon 580ex ii off-camera flash, shutter speed 1/90s, f/8, iso 100, focal length 18mm.
