The last one I’ll post in 2016. This is another one from Rachel. I’ve lifted the brightness around her eyes a little bit (hats are always detrimental to areas around the face), added a bit of clarity and provided the background with a Sean Archer-type of grungy texture.
2016 has been a good year, hopefully for you too, all the best for 2017! Less musicians dying hopefully, and more love to overcome frustration in the world.
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. 😉
