Tried to keep it clean and simple. Editing done first in Lightroom, then did some sharpening in Photoshop. Finally I decided to try Flare (external link) for this one.

Thanks very much! :)...nothing special. Someone else asked the same question on the Sigmalux thread so I'll just copy and paste as it's easier! :D

    CS5 - "Usual" stuff - curves/levels/little dodge+burn (eyes)/high pass/touch of smart sharpen on eyes.


    LR3 - play with presets + split toning + tweaking other sliders till it looks ok. :)

I've been challenged to illustrate "time" with a photo. This is one of my ideas. I took a picture of a friend with a speedlite under her chin (I actually held it while I shot the photo) as I was thinking of a cheesey horror movie when I took the shot. Then, looking at the result, I started thinking about the old lady from The Goonies and Throw Mamma from the Train for inspiration, and this is what I came up with. Keep in mind, this girl is 34...

Hi Pradeep.

I really like the way the face is in focus and the body is OOF. Is that done with just shooting wide open for a shallow DOF, or do you use "blur" to soften the focus? I have seen many photos where the eyes are 10 times sharper than the rest of the face. Again, shooting wide can help with that, but I wonder if there are other manipulations done as well.

No its all done with the lens at 1.4 - no blur added in post; I've described the post work in the previous reply on this page. Shots were there is such shallow dof is made easier with full frame...precisely the reason why I bought a 5D! :)

Fantastic eye and catch... Completely natural... And handpainting.. like the fact that her one foot is off the ground as well..

Did you add some grain on that?? That lens is usually pin sharp..

Yes I used Silver EFEX 2 to create the look with some old film grain. It was a quick point and shoot as the little girl was playing in the fountains at Somerset House in London.

I nearly said Somerset House.. But didn't say anything just in case it turns out to be Michigan or somewhere..

Be careful in there, they don't like you taking too many pictures of the building for some reason.. Nice shot..

Yeah they are a bit stressy normally but it was the world photography festival so there were tons of people taking pictures.

I need to get back into this thread. I just looked at my posts from the first few pages and I'm embarassed haha. Such horrible horrible edits and I've learned so much since then. Latley i've been keeping my edits fairly simple and not too over the top but I hope to change this soon. I'll throw something up tonight.
