  3. This photograph of the outdoor wedding venue gives a great sense of what it looked like there. But the original image looked a lot more dull.

    There just isn't a way to capture the deep shaded areas and the bright sky with a single capture in camera .. without some post-processing work.

    Pulling it into Lightroom, these are the steps I'd take to finesse the image, specifically using the Local Adjustments brush.

  4. There are several lighting positions that photographers have developed over the years. People like George Hurrell, who used tungsten to shoot stars, used these lighting positions. Learn to identify what a butterfly or Rembrandt light is. Knowing these positions, and where the light placed to create them, will help you see how photographers light their images. These are departure points from which you will create your own look and direction. Its hard to depart from someplace you have never been there. This will teach you the basics and give you a good foundation to build on.
    This video is not as slick as some of the others we have done but it has great basic instructions on portrait lighting. (Don't miss the ending its the most exciting part!)

  5. A screen capture beauty edit -

    From Lightroom to Photoshop and back again, this is another DKP, whirlwind screen capture of a beauty edit using the colour lookup mode to finish an image.

    (full blog - ideasandimages.co.uk/beauty-edit-amelia/ )

    I used the high frequency separation method to smooth the skin and add some areas of sharpness, followed by a couple of layers in softlight mode to contour and shape the skin. Darker areas added to enhance the lighting.

    full edit took 32min in realtime.

    Model - Amelia Raven (Alan Sharman Agency)
    MakeUp - Laurie Wright

    125th / f10 / 200iso
    Shot on a Fuji X-Pro with a single light source from a 400w nano head using a 35 inch square softbox.

    Edited using Photoshop CC & Premiere Pro CC

    Music by Mallory Knox: Oceans (acoustic) Wolf at your door records (2013)
