After I post a photo on social media I’ll occasionally have someone ask me what the original photo looked like, or what I did, or didn’t add in Photoshop. Last weeks photo for example prompted some questions from a few people. So I figured I’d share some behind-the-scenes (BTS) from this weeks image and from last weeks image. Sometimes I do a ton of Photoshop work, other time I keep it simple. Personally, I love when people share anything from BTS, I learn a lot that way.
Here is this weeks:
Testing the light in my basement… that’s my stand-in so that I can get my focus right. Used one strobe light in back, pointing towards it.
BEFORE…..Straight out of camera (SOOC), more often than not I have to remove nipples. lol
AFTER….Some minor Photoshop work and a few filters added.
Here are a few from last week. Mostly to show the small space, because that was what everyone asked about.
Standard ceiling height, window to the left and the right.
Test shot for lighting. Nothing fancy, was too lazy to set up strobes. Kept the over head light on and put my flash on the camera to soften shadows, bounced it off the ceiling. Good enough.
Making sure I was in focus.
AFTER….Faux wall and some touch-ups.
…and there you go. I don’t have many blank walls to shoot against, so I have to get creative.
