"No greater smile than this" (Part 3)

A good photograph is knowing where to stand. -Ansel Adams
"and knowing when to click.-Mista Skee"


Little things they say, sometimes lead to great things!

As I was uploading today's post, I realised that soon, I will have been blogging for 6months ( Come May Ending) Half of that time, here on ShutterChance.

Our community seems to be growing rather well, and alot of my daily laughs are found reading peoples comments and leaving them too.

The quality of work found here is tops! Peeps are improving daily, and sometimes I just can't wait to log on at 0000hrs to see what's up!

So to all of my fellow bloggers, thumbs up from mista skee :-)

Right, on to today...

Everything about today's shot is simply achieved:

1. Natural daylight enhanced by a simple light source in the same direction of the natural light. In this case I used a canon speedlite... off camera of course.

2. Converted my RAW file to a 16bit tiff file and processed further in Photoshop CS2!

I achieved the extra contrast and the sepia feel by using the power of just one tool: The curve tool!

FACES WANTED!
Over this Summer, I'll be doing quite alot of shooting for a project i'm working on, so. if you think you have got a wonderfully unique smile as above and your not camera shy, drop me an email

As usual, the master shows how it should be done. Superbly presented as ever. I'm learning the theory through your work, so thanks for that. I just need to go out now and find some willing victims!

Any danger that, as well as sharing your processing method, you could share your pre-capture tips, such as posing and framing? The results tell part of the story, but, for example, do you spend time priming the models or do you work around them? Do you capture a fleeting moment or do you pose them? This must seem obvious to you but it's the pre-capture that most concerns me. Go on - g'is a clue.

I'd also be interested to know what response you get to your request for smilers.

Like the composition/framming. Soft sepia tones work for the image.

Suby
Nice contrasting image, well done!

Mister Skee? NO! Master Skee. You've gone and slammed the chiaroscuro business again. And the result is fan-tas-tic!

Beautiful smile by the way!

Really like this photo. framing, sepia and her smile are all nice!
Just the curve tool huh? I've got to crackdown and learn to use that better.
