A little shoot I did with my best friend and the girls. The girls wanted some shots with these angel wings they got on Ebay. I wanted to try something different processing-wise. I'm not sure I like it, but we have to spread our wings, right? Hope everyone had a great 4th.:)

I love the shots, I even like the processing although thats usually not a style that I like. I think you need to work on taming the flyaway hair a bit in post. The strong backlighting makes it stand out more than it ordinarily would.

Thanks gonzo, I'll try to do that, but honestly, I am kind of a fan of fly away hair when the mood and conditions warrant it. If it was an indoor shoot, then I usually play close attention to those things. But since we were outdoors and it was windy, i wanted to preserve the feel of what it actually was. Sometimes, the girls would fuss with their hair and I would just tell them to let it be. Thanks again!

Just a reflector for all of them except the last one where I used a single AB b1600 and a beauty dish. Thanks!

The blowing hair doesnt bother me as much as the highlighted stray hairs that compete for attention.

The hair does not bother me. I would have preferred the girl's hair without the Baby's Breath flowers in her hair in #4 but that is just me. That is my favorite. These are just great. Do you care to tell us how you processed #5.

I can definitely see how that can draw attention. Thanks again!

Thank you! When I process images like these, I do the exact opposite of what is mostly done. I reduce the blacks and lower the contrast. I raise the shadows a bit. I usually add color and contrast using luminosity masks and do the bulk of my editing using levels and quick masks. For this image, I used a grunge texture I got from deviant-art, and a fake rainbow I downloaded from Meg Bittons' blog and just overlayed and played with the opacity.

I really like these. The processing in some of them is something I would probably not use often. But, I see a place for it and I think these images look excellent.

Thanks ross, I wanted to get out of my comfort zone. Everything was starting to look the same.
