It’s kind of silly weather today here in Holland; rain and sun that overlap every now and then. Not really cold, but not great to go outside as well. So it was a good time to go through old photographs and shoots.
This picture thus is really an old one, with some new paint. I shot this back in November, 2014, with Renate standing in front of the camera. I took it through Photoshop and Nik to accentuate her light hair, to brighten her eyes a little and to bring out her body a bit better.
So even though the picture is 1,5 years old, the postprocessing is from today.
Xenia dropped by the studio two days ago; normally she’s more into more natural shoots with natural lighting, home backdrops etc, but this time we used the studio.
I used one of my favorite light modifiers, which is a gobo spot, without any silhouette in the spot, so it’s just a round spot. The lens was a Sigma 85/1.4, camera a Canon 6D. For the technically interested, ISO 100, f/2.0 at 1/1600s. The flashes normally don’t do HSS (high-speed sync) but I’m using Yongnuo YN-622C remote triggers. The flash itself is an old Linkstar LF-250 at low power.
Here’s an older one from Felicia back in November, 2015.
I revisited the shoot pictures, and even though the placing of Felicia is ‘off’ compared to general rules (she’s to the left of the image, while normally she would be more to the right of the image), I still like her soft expression and collection of ornaments.
