Hey guys, can anyone suggest something kind to the skin for gluing cosmetic stuff on for a shoot?

I know there are commercially available adhesives out there, but is there something common and readily available I can use from say...the kitchen?

PVA wood glue is a little harsh methinks...:ugh:

Rubber cement?

pretty mild and rolls easily off the skin once dry...

Thanks dude. Not sure what you mean...it's gotta be safe for the skin...especially around the eyes. Are you talking about stuff that comes in a tube for gluing rubber together?

not really skin safe for long-term, nor would I want it near my eyes.

Oh I see. Prolly not a good eye deer then.

I will need to get pretty close to the edges of the eyes.

I have been up for the last 36 hours, brainstorming with all these neat ideas. I really want to step up my game. Just need to get the practice in, try the risky and adventurous shots and then use them to attract customers. Just need a few models now. Paying ones would be good, but I guess I will have to ask for volunteers to practice on.

Dont take this as condescending (especially since I'm in the exact same situation as you, trying to find models and build a folio) but everyone starts there, getting family or friends to sit in front of your camera patiently while you fiddle with lighting arrangements and all that shit

Get a family/friends folio, make a model mayhem account and post relevant stuff to your page there, get a few amateur models, get better folio, try to find paying clients

Not condescending at all mate. It is slowly happening for me. The wildlife and macro stuff is taking off, as well as some real-estate work. Changes of fortune are in the wind. I think the big fella upstairs is helping me a fair bit! :bigthumb:

Is your nature stuff generating an income for you? I seem to remember you writing somewhere that you have focused solely on photography since leaving the army, and your blog is made up of a lot of adventure/nature stuff. I've always wondered how 'breaking into the scene' works in nature photography, since the progression into modelling/fashion work is fairly clear cut.

spirit gum/glue. used for wigs.

beat me to it.

in a former life i was on stage just a little. real spirit gum beats out anything else, as it doesn't usually stink after application and it -shouldn't- mess up skin. I have super sensitive skin on my face and used this, without issue, to apply beards/mustaches nightly for a pretty steady run.


....or if you hate your model(s) you can just staple that shit on them :)

Wildlife not yet, but it is something that requires a lot of building blocks (which are all falling into place as we speak). Army was around 8 years ago now. I left my civilian desk job of 4 years in October last year. Other forms of photography are now generating an income for me, but I still have to do some other casual work to pay bills. Eventually the photography will become replacement instead of supplementary income.

I get the feeling that within the next 12 to 18 months, I will be complaining about "too much" photography work. That will be a good day!

Sounds great man. If I'm complaining about too much work in a years time, then things are fine by me


....thats when you raise your price point :x:
