Results of a … I guess a pinup starting theme that basically ended up with a laugh fest….. yea. Literally…. why pose people when you both just end up laughing over pretty much everything.

Model: Lauren

Corduroy dress, check. Super dark background that doesn’t work with the dress, check. Oversaturated skin tones, check.

Anything else that would make this look like it’s from the 90s?

Things that don’t work so great. The AC in the studio. Test shoot from a photoshoot based on reactions. More to come from this.

Fun with gels. Model: Lauren

There is a gelled bulb behind Lauren and to the left. In front is a dish. In each picture, the only thing that changes is the power of the gelled bulb. In the top one you can see the bulb is basically blowing out the background. By the bottom, I had lowered the power of the gelled bulb enough to get color better seen. My favorite is the bottom right.

Model: Lauren

Top: before (no post camera corrections) Bottom: After (with post camera corrections)

Strobitst: 28” Beauty Dish overhead (look for the catchlight)

f16 / 50mm / ISO 160 / 1/200 for those interested.

In the diagram, I listed an LED ring (used it again in a shoot). This time I used it to fill in a bit of a back lighting. I didn’t use it for the whole shoot since I didn’t notice much of a difference. Sometimes One Light is the best. I also had a black foam core board to the left of the model. This helped absorb some reflections.
