When shooting on a gray background, the nice thing is it is easily detachable in Photoshop to subtly adjust. Here I went for quite a bit of subtle post-processing : ProRetouch from Totally Rad (not affiliated but I love their subtle actions), then in the second pass a Sean Archer action. The latter gives some subtle extra lights and less smooth background (actually requiring you to more or less shoot on a 50% gray backdrop) . With lovely model Simone.
It might seem that nothing much is happening here, and you may be right. 😉 Most action takes place on Instagram and less on Facebook (and less, and less…).
Still, I like this one quite a bit, so time for another post here. Hope you like it as well. 🙂
It’s from July this year with Sunsenescence and Anthony. I love the softness and had a hard time switching between high and low contrast. I usually like high contrast, but here a softer look felt better.
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.
