Simply Amy

Suby In the house.

This was from a shoot I did last month. Just a simple shot, nothing fancy, just the beauty of the human body and face.

Have other stonking shots from the shoot but a little too risqué for you guys out there. So will keep them hidden in the archives.

A hugh thank you thank you to Amy for being such a sport and given me the permission to post this shot.

P.s

May not pay too much attention to blogging over the weekend. Have 2 weddings to get through. Grant me the strength O Lord.

And I still have the day job :)

Hey Bro,

Nice shot. Looks like some of the babes here in Vegas. It's hot here, but I'm having a blast. Head to Grand Canyon this weekend.

I like that u didn't 'smoothen' her face or body.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks, I actually thought about doing that but managed to stop myself smile Suby
It is a nice natural expression and great in it's simplicity. Her skin tone seems to have a bit of a yellow color cast to me, might be me, might be the lighting or you may want to tweak it ever so slightly.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks for the comments Jason, I tried not to photoshop this image too much. This is actually her skin tone (not seeing any yellow ting but don't forget I am partly colour blind) smile

lovely portrait. I personally would add a tiny bit of glow, but this all natural feeling is wonderful. great shot.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks faustina, i thought of that but that would have being too much photoshoping for me, i just wanted a close to natural and simple image as I could get. This shoot was done so i could practice my (non existent) lighting techniques without having to rely too much on photoshop smile

Very nice portrait, the lighting is so natural! Is that from the lighting you used or some processing tweaking afterwards?

Two weddings! Well, it is the weddding month. Have a great time!
Suby & Sinem: Just posted a reply to this question on my response to Matt, but used a 50W overhead bulb, a reading lamp and canon flash. That was all the lighing used. This was an experiment in lighing, I did realise though that having pmroper lighting does help your shots. no tweaking done in photoshop apart from darkening the background more.

Fantastic portrait Subster. Would love to know what your setup was. Lighting does have a warm cast but I like that. Did you you use gels on the lights?
Suby & Sinem: Okay I will fess up smile This was done in my spare bedroom with a black velvet cloth. Lighting used, was overhead 50W light bulb, Light from a reading lamp, and Canon flash smile I also darkened the background (as my black background was naff) a little bit more in CS2. Apart from that, no other tweaking done.

As I do not have proper studio lighting or equipment yet, I just make use of what I have & can afford. Ahhhh one day soon I will be able to afford a Esprit Gemini 500Ws Two Head Travel-Pak Kit, aaahhh one day smile Ohh and I must not forget one day soon will buy the EOS-1DS Mark II . Now that is heaven.

Nice portrait, but the skin tones seem a bit off to me perhaps a bit too yellow.

Suby I just read some other comments about the skin tone. I don't know if you read my comment to you about the "Huey", but this might be an example of what happens when the monitor isn't continuously calibrated.

I got the Huey and found that the photofinishing place that used the Huey to calibrate had accurate skin tones, the other places didn't. I have a lengthy post about it today, but I think I already told you about it yesterday.

The places I went that didn't continuously calibrate were the ones with the horrible skin tones, looked like mud or silly putty. Yuck!

I've had the Huey installed for one day and it it changes the calibration continuously with the changing light in the room during the day which believe it or not does make a difference. My monitor was only slightly off, but my room light is fairly consistent during the day.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Laurie, I did read it but the Huey software is only for US & Canadian citizens (discrimination someone). It also does not help as I am slightly colour blind smile I did not do any tweaking on the colours on this shot so I think the yellow may be from the light source I used (after all I only used house hold 50W bulbs). One of the things I constantly fight with is my monitor calibration, and that is why I have 2 flat screens connected, it allows me to get a fairly good view of the image.

I also have just REALY started printing out my own images, and I found out one really has to be careful when playing with Photoshop. What you see on the screen does not necessary equate to what will be printed. Got a HP printer for about £200.00 so not a printer to be easily laughed at, it does print some wicked shots I have to say but I am still learning and hopefully I will get in right soon. Also I am still trying to work out a system of ACTUALLY finding out when it is best to print myself or send to a lab to print cause of the cost factor.

I know I will crack it soon - or go bankrupt in the process at this rate. Thanks for all the information. Now I have to go find the equivalent of Huey for us UK residents since we are not good enough for the American version sad

Great portrait! A really captivating model!
i've not done studio work before and i don't know what it's like to control the lighting. So this is speaking from a total novice's point of view: the lighting seems a little flat and singular. Other than that this is a very technically sound picture.
Lovely!

She looks very comfortable and confident Suby. You must have put her at ease, which makes her an even better subject. I love the black background. Do you have a studio, or a big black sheet that you hang?
