    Is this also natural light?

    Huge fan of shadows....another fabulous image Graeme!
     
  4. JD............ yes, natural window light from her right..............

    There is a dark wood wardrope behind her, that when I PP the image goes black............. can't afford studio lights.......... anyway, it's hard enough trying to work out natural light! :eek:  :eek:  :eek:

    Well you're doing an excellent job with natural light...interesting info about the dark wood behind the subject and how it turns black when you PP...for this type of effect, I would have thought you spent most of your PP time tracing around the subject zoomed at 500% with the lasso tool haha! That is typically how I achieve a similar desired effect...it takes forever though!

    Thanks for sharing all this info!
     
  8. JD........... I very rarely, if ever, have to do any PP on the background directly, shooting in this room............. that's why I use it........... all the other rooms in my house have light walls............! :biggrin:

    And I admire your 500% patience/lasso discipline! :eek:

  10. Hey Ray, now you are being t-o-o- kind! :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

    Thank you............ :redface:

    Stunning!! One of your top 5. Beautiful use of natural light:shadows. Now *this* is my kind of photo. I'd hang it on my wall.....absolutely.

    Man.....you're good and getting better.
