Dish of Beauty: EXPLORED

(note: Apparently this was explored and then dropped. I had no idea until today, 10/1/09)

 

Some people pay up to $300 for a beauty dish. Others make them out of turkey pans. I am a part of the latter group, and this is the kind of result you can get.

 

There were minor photoshop touchups here (spot removal, curves, and only a tiny bit of saturation and vibrance adjustment). But seriously, follow the simple directions in the above link, get a pretty girl (it pays to have pretty friends like Cammila here), and take some fantastic shots. It's apparently that simple.

 

strobist info:

1 sb600 at 1/4 fired into home-made beauty dish, about 3 feet above and one foot to the right of the subject. 1/2 CTO gel.

 

Fired with Cactus V4s.
