Trio Temporale

A string trio needed some PR shots. This was one of many poses, and I think it worked quite well. The hall where the photos were taken had a difficult mixture of direct light from two directions and internal lighting on the roof. I also used some bounce flash for filling some shadows. I thing G1 did well here, thanks to RAW. I fixed CA from the grand piano (essentially all blues are removed) and I cloned a small portion of the bottom left floor as there was a nasty seam there. Using Photoshop's stamp tool is much easier than doing some timberwork on location!


Viewer Comments

Pekka: I truly enjoy your musical portraits...you have such a wonderful vision of architectural composition. It is akin to listening to a Bach Fugue, artistic line, color and symmetry are so artfully combined to capture the viewer's imagination. I find terrific emotion and strength in how all of this comes to together; makes one feel as if they are there at the performance....Congratulations..Your photos are full of personality and a joy to experience.....
