On occasion I’ll look back in my archives and experiment with new post process ideas. One thing that is consistent about my shooting is the lighting I use. For the most part I almost always shoot in the shaded light. And for good reason. The quality of soft light is just amazing.
While digging through the archive and by digging I mean searching through Adobe Lightroom. I came across a test with Morgan of Scout Model & Talent with Ty Marie Frost helping out with the hair and makeup.
The reason for my revisitation to my old work, I wanted to try a technique by achieving a film look to a few pics from different shoots to see if I can get consistent tones across multiple sets. In order to do so the quality of light had to be similar therefore I chose some pictures where I used shaded light during varying times of the day. Considering that these were shot nearly a year ago I went ahead and essentially reprocessed these again.
When I look back on my old work I wonder why I didn’t pick some as my selects. Like these 2 pictures for example. My vision has either evolved or I must of blinked and passed over the pics. Maybe next year I’ll find more gems from past tests like this to share.
