Looking back at these photos makes me think (and wish) I was working on a commission for NASA rather than a cosmetics company. As the powder was thrown around by the falling make-up brush the colours remind me of photos of distant nebulas in the universe. The gold base that the brushes are falling on looks like the surface of the moon. Well either that or I’ve been watching to much Star Trek.
The brushes were entirely backlight with two monoblocs and shot on a Canon 5D mrkii.
Also shot on the Mrkii is the Behind the Scenes video below.
