Here is a study in brown tones with Liz Ashley. Actually, if the truth be known, these were the calibration shots made at the beginning of our Imagery black and white workshop held in Fort Worth last week. Because of the very directional lighting and the fall off from right to left, I thought these might make an interesting study if merged together. These were done with layer masks. You have to look very close to see the left side of the body in some cases.



I'm working on several other versions. Any comments or suggestions are welcome. The lighting setup was the same as for the other shots I've posted in the last few days so you can check the lighting diagram that was posted with those.

By the way, these are shot with the Canon 20D, Sigma 18-125 Zoom, at ISO 800 at about 1/10th second each at 5.6.

Cheers,
rfs

Very cool layout. It's kind of dreamy-like...and it's 12:30 am for me. lol. Guess I should hit the sack soon.

RFS,


Fabulous shots! I think it's much more exciting to add the type of twist you did as apposed to just one simple shot at a time! Did you darken the left side substantially by using your layer mask or is the light drop off as seen pretty true to the original?

Very nice. Wish I could have made it to the workshop [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] but I didn't want to get anyone else sick.

Thanks.

The drop off is just due to the way the light is set up. The lighting was setup to mostly allow lots of light and shadows. Here was the lighting setup in case you missed it with my other posts:
