photoblog image Lindsay going dark!

Lindsay going dark!

After this post I’ll surely dive in those “how to make better shots with your DSLR so no Photoshop is needed” tutorials and for some necessary post processing “ How to Photoshop in case of a mess up” tutorials. So why did I still put it up?

Lindsay has perfect facial lines, nice wishbones structures and as some of you know by now I love lighting effects. I like the mysteriousness feel I get from my CS2 manipulation. All done while I was suppose to sleep :).

The second reason is for me to learn how to make better decisions by reading all the comments and suggestions from you guys. I guess that’s also what the whole SC experience is about. Show the world your creativity and await constructive criticism for possible improvement.

Thank you Patrick, Gillian and Lindsay for a helluva good time once again! Also I must not forget to thank everyone for the reactions on my last post. It did me good....

Have a mighty fine weekend! I will for sure…

The lighting here is very special, Fausto. It occurred to me that if she were looking straight ahead to the right of the pic, and not at us, her left eyeball would be dark and not white, if that makes sense. But her features are very definitely evocative and gorgeous!

I just noticed that you have the camera I have just ordered and will pick up when I go back to Atlanta. So I will definitely be learning from YOU, watching what you're doing.
Fausto Fraser: Thank you Ginnie!!! Yes, it makes sense cause I kept in mind the little fine lightdots in her eyes and the part of the eyeball.
I will be happy to be of any assistance. Sometimes I shoot with the D200. The Rebel is a great camera. I still have to pull out its full potential.
Thank you for the compliment, have a nice weekend!
This certainly does have a mysterious feel to it. I like the lighting on her face with the one side in shadow. What lighting effects did you do exactly? Was it to put the highlight on her cheek, eyebrow and lip on her right side and the catchlight in her eye, because surely you wouldn't get those if the lighting was on the other side of her face?

Fausto Fraser: Well, the lighting was set up for full coverage of the model and she was partially lit by the lights. I just made her move her head and I kept looking for the right angle to get the light on one site of her face. In the post processing I used the curves method in CS2 to darken the picture. I did try many other features but I guess I got some more learning to too . By the way, this session was done in the studio of Patrick Krolis. This was made with his lighting equipment and I just experimented. Thanks for the compliment and I hoped I answered your question accordingly.
Very artistic shot, the management of light is almost perfect ! Bravo !
Fausto Fraser: Almost perfect, you are right. Now I know what to fight for next time I want to create a similar effect. Thanks for the compliment!
This has the makings of a super moody shot, but... I find the light entering the right hand eye very distracting - as the pupil is in shadow, it makes her look blind in one eye. This can be a good thing, in fact I quite like it - depends on what you are after. Mike
Fausto Fraser: I tried many different effects in the pp and this I liked the most. If only I had the patience to correct the right hand eye. Finally I left it like this because of the tiny sparkle you see in her eyes. Glad you liked it. Thanks for the good words! I appreciate it very much.
i like Fausto. this is very nice.
Fausto Fraser: Nice to know you liked it, thanks for the compliment!

beutiful control and use of this light, love the shot. mal
Fausto Fraser: Happy to see you like it! Thanks for the compliment!
I remember this moment during the shoot, all of a sudden you were in a different position, and very happy with your insight smile The only remark i have is what other already have indicated on her eye. You are a quick learner Fausto!!! :d:d When do we do our next shoot?
Fausto Fraser: I was really happy with the result of the lights yes..the post processing gave me some trouble. Back to the books I guess! You are a good teacher smile
We should shoot asap! Thanks for the comment!
Lovely work here grin
Fausto Fraser: Thanks Suby! Lindsay is the lovely one here smile and you are one of the SC members who is going to help me (and many others) get better by trading us some secrets.....ex.: " How to get models from restaurants and make them exotically super attractive" smile
