    Had an unbelievable shoot with Keighla tonight. I've got a LOT more to edit so stay tuned! 5dii + 70-200 2.8L IS MKII

    Strobist: Einstein boomed above with socked BD for key and an ABR800 with moon unit for fill on the legs.

    Warning!!!! Please no creepers. I've had a big issue recently with folks who favorite it only to check and they have no photostream but go around favoriting pics of women. This is not that kind of photography and I will block anyone who favorites it that doesn't have a photostream with recent relative photo's of their own. It's sketchy and will be dealt with promptly. I apologize to those who legitimately leave feedback Thanks and enjoy!

      What kind of post photo editing would this photo require? I have thousands of photos, but almost never post edit.

      If you're not familiar with portrait retouching then this could take a very long time. I've been editing for around 5 years and consider myself more than proficient at it and it took me about 2 hours from processing the raw to the final shot. A basic run down of it utilized clone/heal dodge and burn, levels and curves layer adjustments. Quite a bit of masking. A little bit of liquify and knowing how to composite bg layers so that it fits the scene. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

      That was perfect. Thank you. You definite are a pro. I love to take photos, I'm passing the 20k photo mark in the last 2 years. I've never spent more then 30-40 minutes touching up a photo I am to A.D.H.D. for that but often wondered if I should go through the extra effort of taking masking to the next level. The only thing new to me was the liquify, I had been wondering how that that was accomplished. I wrestle with my concise about how far I want to manipulate an image. I am wanting to experiment with more post production after seeing some recent hollywood publication before/after shots.
      Thanks for your reply.

      No problem! Glad I could help. To be honest, I think we all struggle with the issue of when to stop editing. There's a very fine line between retouching and manipulating and I find myself dangerously close to one or the other and don't notice until after a day, week or even a month.

      I think post production on photos is absolutely essential. The smallest thing like a simple 3 second curves layer adjustment to bump up the contrast can drastically alter an image. I see too many people who buy one piece of expensive equipment after another only to think that their photos will magically become better and then ruin a perfectly good shot in post.

      As always, if you have any other questions, feel free to ask. I learned from asking others so I hope to share this knowledge as much as possible too for anyone who finds themselves in the shoes I once was in.

      Thanks guys! PJ, you're killing those composite shots. I gotta try that out soon.

    11. P Lawrence 37 months ago | reply

      That's very kind of you mate. :)...but you've already done a composite - a great one at that. ;)

      I'm seriously jealous of those wings - amazing stuff mate! :D

    12. ChrisG Photography 37 months ago | reply

      Haha thanks! I meant more with a true original 3-5 stop HDR that I went out and took specifically for a look like you're doing. HDR has never been good to me lol but I think it's time I start learning a thing or two about it. Let me know if you want me to send you the brush set for the wings.

      Oh ok! Yh it can be fun to do, so look forward to your work mate. :)...and yh, would love the brush set! ;) Cheers! :D
