“It’s truly amazing what you can achieve in the shade, with a half gold reflector.”
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.
