Hi, my name's Rich Harrington. Welcome to this episode of Video Gear Weekly. We're going to be talking about a problem that often affects folks, myself included, and that is shine. Maybe your subject is follicly challenged, or as they get older, or really any skin type can show shine. And, to make this easier I'm actually joined today by Kim Foley, who is a professional makeup artist and a stylist. Kim, this is a problem that affects so many folks. You know, and I, I think you see it all the time. I'm watching the news, people have been running and gunning, they're a little bit sweaty.
It's just a problem that pops up. What is shine? Why do people shine? >> Well, people really have a little glow to the skin, as natural healthy skin should. And what we want to try to do for camera, because camera picks it up as a reflection and it looks profusely sweaty. So, we want that credibility for the client, so we want to make sure that we knock that shine completely out. And that is the biggest problem for the makeup artist or stylist, is to make sure that the skin is really matte. And we're going to use that word a lot, when we're talking today because, matte is what we want, which means no shine.
>> So we're going to explore this much deeper on this week's show. And even if your subject is cold and freezing, they could still be shining. And really what this comes down to is a limitation. Remember, what the eye sees it's very different than what the camera sees, and we need to even things out. The goal here is to make everybody look their best on camera and that's what we're going to explore today, the essential equipment you're going to need and some of the techniques to take care of this problem.
