It’s been a while. I’ve recently done another shoot with this girl, who has been training hard to shape her body. We did some experimentation with color gels; here is a shot with a regular white light at the front and a red spot pointing partly at the background, partly at her by opening the barndoors of the flash and removing the grid.
This one is from a shoot in July last year. I added some color balancing, firstly based on of the color LUTs from https://www.iwltbap.com/, then some extra Color Balance to bring out the blues in the shadows.
The white blob in the background is actually part of my studio; it’s the television where I display the photos I take. That day we didn’t bother with background noise too much; that’s why you have large diaphragms which blur out quickly. 😉 And it makes pictures a bit more natural, which I like these days.
This one was taken with the Canon 6D, 50mm Sigma ART f/1.4 lens at ISO 100, f/1.8 at 1/100 sec.
Model & styling: Marion Edens.
I had a shoot last Tuesday with this really fit girl. I like the combination of roughness and softness in this shot. In postprocessing I used some Clarity to lift the brightness of the shoes a bit. Especially when softboxes are standing reasonably close, the falloff is steep and you quickly lose quite a bit of lighting in the off-center areas.
A new shoot with Marion; this time I wanted to throw some things overboard and try some more loose photography. Just showing some background, studio stuff, homely things. And also some natural light (for the most part).
This one was shot in front of a window facing north. I love the softness of the light; better than any softbox I’ve encountered (due to the larger size of the light source of course, but still).
Here’s another one from a recent shoot with Marion.
One thing I did notice is the synchronization with the Linkstar LF-250 being 99% perfect; there is a small darkening at the bottom of the image, which is due to me using Yongnuo high-speed sync radio triggers, which almost work with the Linkstar, but not for the full 100%. I should test it with the Linkstar LF-400 to see if that works any better.
But if doesn’t really make the image any less. 😉
