Photography studio, gallery and training complex

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).
