Lance wanted some shots with his dog, Lucky.
Lighting on this one was all natural.
I used 4 layers in post processing. I’ve been experimenting with some post processing techniques to find “my” style.
I wanted to use natural light since the sun was shining with some clouds. I am becoming more and more convince that I prefer off-camera flash.
I’m playing with a new program called PhotoTools 2.5. This program makes some post processing techniques a lot easier. It is a Photoshop CS 5 plugin and works in sync with Photoshop. It has over 200 different processes to experiment with.
I also added a scratch layer in Photoshop. I am trying to improve my processing and also find “my” style.
Lighting was with one of my Vivitar 283 flashes on a light stand. The wind was blowing a bit to hard for me to use my shoot-through umbrella, so it’s bare, throwing some hard light on Lance. I think this kind of lighting better suits Lance. Flash was on camera left.
