Had a shoot with Amira last night; during which time, my ab400 decided to take a trek through a cheech and chong movie and start sssmokin'! She actually made the dress from the shoot I did with Nadyia that I posted a few weeks ago. The lighting on this was a bit of a challenge, due to the predominantly quite black attire:



Too much processing on the skin?

As usually, polite CC&C welcome.

I think the back ground is ok, because of the mood you are creating. Goth is suposed to be dark!

pretty much everything black in your image is shiny black, e.g., hair, corset, chair. don't fret with shiny black like you would or should with light-absorbing, non-reflective, flat black. and yeah, i think you overprocessed the skin a bit. not that the rest of us aren't ever guilty of doing that.

Jimmy, could you elaborate a bit on that? I'm not quite sure what you mean... her dress definitely was very absorbant. When I first used a softbox on the corset (the main thing I wanted to "show off" for her), it was way too soft, so I chose to use a more "hard" light and that really brought the corset out.

As for the skin, I could tone it down a bit... this was a first cut.

I was mainly asking if the skin had too much of a "smoothing" look to it. I tried to do it just a tad, maybe too much still though. I'm sensitive to overprocessed plasticy skin. I think the background is fine too, plenty of separation etc, even for the black couch.

Thanks guys!

maybe i'm wrong, but the corset looks like it's made of a material that is somewhat reflective. not necessarilly satin or silk (which is fairly reflective, even in black) but something in that fabric is reflective. so i'm just saying that any material that's black AND reflective is going to show up okay as opposed to cotton or wool and some other fabrics that aren't going to reflect light much at all. also, are you using the shadow/highlight tool? i've found that there's often way more detail in the shadows then there seems to be at first glance once i start messing around with the S&H tool, which you probly want to do before adjusting levels..

Jimmy, I see what you mean - I think the texture of the corset is in between the "shininess" of the couch, and say black velvet. I like the corset as is, I wanted to bring out a lot of detail in it, hence the more hard light (started out with soft light, from a strip box). I do agree about the couch; I'mg oing to tone that down a bit and remember that in the future... Thanks!

Another thing about the processing, I was going for somewhat of a "painterly" look here. Did I get close?
