Sublime image quality, with creamy skin tones

I’ve lost the plot. It’s been a while since they’ve let me me out. And, even longer since I have shot a single image worth a mention. So I thought I’d go back and look at a shoot with Cody.

The shot above is the final crop. It took me around 2 hours and 30 mins to decide upon the it.

I used every guide that Adobe Photoshop CC2021 avails me, whilst using the crop tool. I used the thirds tool, I used the Golden Spiral tool, I referenced Bert Stern’s “The Last Sitting”, I cropped her back out, and rotated the image to add purpose to the pose. I did the old “rotate the images 180 degress” and crop trick I learned at art college. I considered the image as a whole, abstracting myself from the image and asking what the story is?… What am I trying to say? “What does the viewer see?” “What do I want the viewer to see?”

In the end I WhatsApped Cody and asked her… She prefers the shot above… so I went with that… If you can’t trust the model to know what looks good what’s the point?

I hope you enjoy viewing the image – Colin

FYI: Below is the the alternate crop and the whole frame.

AFFILIATE ADVERTISEMENTS

As an affiliate of many brands and services, including Amazon, I often get early notifications of special offers and I post these on the ads & offers panel.
I put the offers here as it means that more people will see them, as I write articles and reviews regularly and this panel appears on every article.
This ad panel is dynamic and will display current ads & offers from around the world. You should see ads from your territory. I hope some of you find the links useful and save some money.
