"It's truly amazing what you can achieve in the shade, with a half gold reflector."

Cody Cataluffi - The Light Fantastic

Cody Cataluffi - Richmond Park - London

This image of Cody was shot during a pro fitness session that we were shooting in Richmond Park - London, UK. I can't help looking for a beauty shot even when under pressure to get the excercise and fitness shots for the client.

You can see a few of the pro shots in Cody's excercise folio here

I hope you enjoy viewing the image - Colin

Pixel Peepers' Notes & Newbie Hints & Tips:

Before modern digital sensors lighting could be tricky. This is because it had to be specific. Digital photography allows us to keep the lighting simple.

That's true, however...

  • In addition to the half gold reflector, this shot required a Sony A7R Mk III digital camera that does not have an alias filter.

  • A Sony FE 85mm f1.4 G master lens that is specifically designed for portraits.

  • It was processed through Adobe Camera Raw, using unsharp masking techniques, to reveal the detail.

  • It was balanced on an Eizo IPS monitor that has to be calibrated about once a month.

  • It was then output by Adobe Photoshop 2021, using an output profile for online display.

  • It's one of sixty seven frames.

  • The styling required choosing running gear from 3 outlets, and a lifestyle watch from Garmin.

  • A make up artist, and a hair stylist... and I've forgotten something?

  • Oh yeah... the model and the photographer.
