Ok, here's the deal. I was obviously thinking backwards when I put this shot together, in fact a whole set on shots like this. For some reason I was thinking light on face and dark on body, but shot it the opposite. Here is an example:



Anyone here have any idea how I might go about saving this set? A few of the images kind of work, but the majority are lost without a fix..

Thanks for any help you can give..

Hmm, well, I don't know how to help you, but I just wanted to say I feel your pain. I did a shoot maybe a few months ago, one I had fairly high hopes for, and, well, to make a long story short, out of four rolls of 35mm film (like 140-some-odd shots), none of 'em are usable. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Wasn't the model's fault in any way -- I realized what I had done (several stupid mistakes that day) only after the fact. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Anyways, I hope somebody can help you...

I'm just a hack but have you thought about creating a duplicate layer and adjusting to lighten the shadows and then creating another dupe layer and using a gradient mask? It might work.

The bottom line is that these things happen...usually only to me though... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Here's a quick fix I did in less than 2 minutes, you may or may not like it but I feel it's a little better.
Duplacated, shadow and highlight adjustment, duplicate, selected first copy, selected dark area of face, grew selction by 20 px, applied severe curve, adjusted opacity of the various layers and flattened.

Good job Randy,..did you use the gradiant tool?
The only thing I see to improve it , is lighten the background over her right shoulder.

Thanks Ron.. This is probably one of the several ways it can be done but I used the lasso tool to select the shadowed side and levels to adjust the tone as close as possible. Then the clone tool to blend in as best as I could without me dozing off on my keyboard. Bumped up the saturation a bit on the left side a bit.

Another way I was just messing with was duplicating the layer using screen blend mode and selecting the shadowed side. Then mask and fill it. Duplicated the layer again and used opacity to fine tune the exposure. Then use a separate layer to feather out. Hope that helps [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

lighen the background over her shoulder huh... it was pretty late last night haha


wow i just noticed your from antioch ca. my sister lives there and i visit her a few times during the month. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
