Just For A Moment... by Autopenguin Just For A Moment... by Autopenguin
Model: the wonderful ~sally-ersch

This is the first of quite a few from a shoot last Friday with Sally and Cameron that I'm really pleased with. The pose was inspired by a series of photos of another model that *P3T3R-KURT3N-GROUPI3 had shown me on her camera earlier in the evening. "What was that thing in those photos? Yeah! Do that!" Just like last time, the spontaneous pays off.

Key to this shot was a brilliant Alien Bees ringflash [link] which *rikky1 was kind enough to let me experiment with. The Sigma 30mm lens needed to be far enough into the barrel of the ringflash to avoid vignetting, which meant holding the camera grip literally by fingertips. Don't try that. It hurts :)

How much of the soft diffusion and colour tone is straight off the camera and how much is Post Prod? Because the light in this is lovely! Not at all what I'm used to with RF :D

I'd say it's maybe 50/50, to be honest. A lot of it's the ring flash and the makeup, but I did end up "remastering" it a little bit. Unlike some of the other ones from this shoot that I've posted, there's no saturation boost in this one, though the diffusion process I put it through did enhance colour tone unexpectedly. White balance on this shot was also out, and correcting that had an unexpectedly pleasing effect as well.

If you're curious to see the original to compare, send me a note with an email address I can send it to.
