It’s always nice to do some experimentation at the end of a shoot (if it’s not already an entire evening of experimentation).
This photo was taken with a flash very nearby Annemiek’s hat (too close in hindsight, further away would mean sharper shadows on her face probably). There’s another flash slightly giving light at the right side of the camera.
After that it was a matter of correcting the light balance here and there in Photoshop, and adding some contrast, plus a bit of clarity on the side. I love the end result.
It’s just that there’s hardly any place anymore for the logo. 😉
Here is a shot of a type that I don’t often post; this was taken during Sail 2015 in Amsterdam. It was late in the evening, and there was a beautiful half-clouded sky. Lots of boats were boating on the IJ that evening.
I took this picture and raised the white balance quite a bit in postprocessing (in Lightroom) to get a more overall yellowish look. Other than that, nothing much was changed.
The photo was entered into a competition of Sail photos (sailinbeeld.nl) and ended up as one of the final 9 photographs. It will be on display somewhere soon for some time at Delta Lloyd.
