Does anyone ever like to try their hand at a grainier, old fashion, sort of soft focus type of shot? Here is one example of model Claudia:



Let's see your grainy photos.

Cheers,

I really like the shadowplay and the way you lit that. I am, however, confused as to how the (apparent) lack of light on her legs produced such definite shadows on the ground.

Cheers

Actually not any more, but that used to be sort of a specialty of mine. That's why I loved Plus X so much, with its soft, mushy grain. God I miss Plus X!

No mystery. Here is the lighting setup (model Liz is in this photo):



Since I shoot in RAW, I can develop the RAW image any way I choose. So I went for a much darker image and used the curves tab to adjust till I got something I liked. I then brought it into Photoshop where I used the NIK eFex Soft Focus filter to pump up the grain and softness.

Since I mainly played with the curves in the highlight area, that left the shadow areas to go darker and I did push that part of the curve a bit to obscure even more.

Cheers,
rfs

I like this look personally.

This one I just used scatter RGB, which I think is similar to the process in film?

I call this "Suzanne Triumphant" because of the defiant expression on her face. Model is Suzanne O'Hare from Ireland.
