No Oil Painting
My last post prompted comments from Fotofilia club members of “How could you do that to our Emilie?” and “That 18mm lens should come with a warning”. Well, just to balance things up, and to show our lovely model Emilie in the way she deserves to be seen, here are a few shots taken about 20 minutes after the less-than- flattering images you saw in the “Right studio, wrong photographer” post.
I loved the images taken during this very brief shoot (at the end of Emilie’s studio day last weekend) pretty much straight out of camera. But Emilie’s look, coupled with a simple, soft, pseudo-window-light very much reminded me of Flemish and perhaps Renaissance painting so, just for fun, I used the wondrous Snapseed software’s Grunge filter to add a painterly finish, vignette and colouring.
I’ve written about this before but Snapseed, for those who don’t know, or have only seen it as a phone app, is available for Windows and Mac computers too. A very versatile and simple piece of kit for a very low price – and I love it when I have images that I think suit it (as, hopefully, these do).
