Assignment 8: Portraiture
Filip Kaliszan: Indoor Traditional Portrait
This is another picture that meets the first requirement: indoor portrait.
Here once again I used the dark-blue paper background, however I increased the intensity of the background fill-lights to bring out more of the navy-blue color of the background. I used a directional (key) light from the right side (soft-box light) and a less intense fill light on the left (again to reduce shadow darkness). Finally I significantly reduced the intensity of the hair light to avoid over-exposing the white hat.
In post-processing I cropped the image, adjusted color temperature and softened the skin to make it smoother.
Camera settings the same as on previous image.
Jennifer: very nice composition
