Are there any organize model shoots without MUA? I'm not sure, cos I don't join at all, if there is, you should see whether is worth it to join or not. and I don't think I will join a shoot (pay model shoot or TFCD), cos I prefer to shoot alone.
if I do have a non paid shoot, will try my best to arrange for a MUA also, unless the subject is able to a decent make up, cos shooting without MUA, most of the shots will be unsatisfactory, and not usable to me, it can consider wasting of my time to do the shoot in the first place.
Hmmmm, I see 2 who polled on MUA is not required or necessary...
Remember to get a Good MUA, ... dun 贪小便宜 and get those cheap cheap one lor
Imagine, doing a close up @ f8 with studio lighting, ... you will 'ki xiao' ( become mad ) ...
I see someone has dug up this old thread and added another vote to the No need for MUA.
Really makes me curious on why no...
anyone care to comment??
The purpose of applying make-up is to enhance the beauty of the face by bringing out good features and hiding poor ones. Make-up application is an art. It requires practice and a fundamental knowledge of:
· The structure of the face
· The action of colours and their relationships to one another
· The principles of optical illusions
So I would say a big resounding YES.
MUA? It depends on the type of images. However, nomatter what, with a good mua whom I trust, the end product is always better. At the very least, alot less DI in the end.
i dunno about you guys, but for us gals, when the make up is uneven, lines not drawn properly, eye shadow uneven spread, one look, can tell.
many people think by slapping on colors onto the face + friendly MUA = good MUA.
of course, attitude counts.
if your MUA isnt able to deliver what you want, what you envisage your model to look like for your theme, always late, takes HOURS to do a make up(glamour), then i say it's time to move to another MUA.
