Environmental Portrait

19 06 2010

One of the things I like about the experimentation that I have been doing with models is creating environmental portraits…. capturing the subject in their environment.

I snapped this shot of Mr. Pritchard on our Karijini trip.  I liked the soft tones of the background colours.

OK. OK… So Neal is not Tahlea in a bikini….

You seem to have a knack for catching folks unaware … I think thats the second time you have caught me unaware … I always prefer those shots to the standard “stand here and smile” shots folks take …

The clarity on this image stunning and I love the soft pinkish tones in the landscape you have used … Did you use off camera flash ?

All Neil needs a Peter Lik hat and he could be his twin.

UN-Believe-able LOL 🙂

Nice work Brent

What post processing have you done to the photo to get that result?

Hey James

Well to start with, I shot the image at f2.8 so all the blurring/sharpness was as it was captured in camera.

As far as processing I did the following

I Added a Calivinize layer to create the warm mood (this is the trick I demoed at Karijini).
Then I added a Freaky detail layer
Then I did some curves to darken selected parts of the image
Bit of vignette
Final sharpen

Thats it.
