Lucy in 1997

    Newer Older

    How time flies, I was shooting a glamour session at a hair salon back in 1997 when my wife showed up, I asked the hair-dresser to set her up with hair/make-up. I did several different looks, this one I liked a lot. Back in the day I used to soften close-up shots -a lot- with diffusion filters (on the lens) this particular one has like -double- diffusion.

    Hasselblad 500cm, 150 F4 Sonnar, Fuji NPH400, Photogenic 800 Photomaster white umbrella above & silver reflector below to compensate shadows. Another strobe behind to highlight hair. Scan from a 5x5 print.

      ¡Pues te felicito, porque después de tanto tiempo, ella sigue siendo muy bella y eso significa que la tratas bien!

      Gracias Boris, Lucha aún es muy atractiva, le gusta mucho hacer aerobics y eso la ha mantenido muy bien. Ella es un poco vergonzosa y batallo para tomarle fotos a veces. Esta sesión es una de las mejores que tengo de ella.

      Using the sharpest camera in existence for soft focus portraits is radical.
      I admire this, especially since the photo is splendid.

      Thanks!
      Back in the day, retouching was prohibitively expensive, for portraits that were head and shoulders I had to use on-lens diffusion, it made the skin smooth and gave it a nice glow.

      Gorgeous! I didn't recognise her until I read her name in the title.

      Thank you :-)
      This was done many years ago, but she's still a knock-out :-)
