A Journey into Skin

Strobist: x1600 into medium octabox with grid above right @f8, x1600 into 10 degree grid with warming gel behind/below model, white reflector cam left. 3 Stop ND on Camera. Triggered by Cyber Commander.


This was an interesting image because I did some crazy makeup for this image, the eye shadow was copper, but the the model was covered in Gold Luxe (yea right?). Using some serious tone manipulation I brought the skin back to something I liked. Next I set the white balance correctly for the eyes and brought them in separately. The original image was like seriously as gold as gold gets when originally white balanced to the studio lights.


Model: Nicole Thornton
