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.
