Goldwell Color Zoom Competition

I had the privilege of teaming up with stylist Andrea Bonawitz and model Leah Kane to put our best foot forward in the 2010 Goldwell Color Zoom contest.

The search was on for the most trendsetting colorists in this international contest.

First Session

In this initial session, we tried out a couple hair styles with several lighting setups – focusing on finding the right angles, poses and expressions. We had a great time and learned some lessons for our next shoot.

Second Session

We honed in on fine detail in lighting setups, makeup and careful styling. We made slight variations along the way and even cut loose for a few shots. We were confident we had several competition-worthy shots after this.

Final Edits

We made our selects and worked on variations in color temperature, dodging/burning, and degree of retouching. We were very pleased at the results and how we placed in our first time in this international competition.
