"By Light of the Window"
Settings: 50mm and 1/160 at f/1.8 (ISO 400)
I felt like uploading two photos today. Why? Because I could. Also, I didn't want a day to go by without seeing a beautiful woman in my photo stream. Ha!
This photo was taken during my shoot with Mackenzie back in September. This was our original setup with her sitting back in the chair next to the window as the sunlight burst in upon her. I loved the outfit that we put together: blue jeans and a grey jacket with part of her chest showing. It's very tame, yet a bit taunting at the same time.
In post, I was playing around with a few settings. One of the presets I downloaded was a series of B&W mixes with an option to make it look like an antique photo with a sepia feel. On a whim, I applied the antique effect without first making it B&W and this is the result. It warmed everything up and gave it a nice golden glow. I didn't want to do much after that. I blew out the whites and highlights a bit to enhance the feel of the light coming into the room and adjusted other levels and contrast. A medium vignette is also applied.
