These are some recently edited photos from a set I did for my wife’s fashion blog.
They also mark a bit of a departure from my own usual editing style. Generally I stick to the color palette given to me by the scene, but I decided to try adding some flare to these by playing around with some subtle color shifts in Capture One. I like the result and I hope to continue experimenting to find other distinctive looks that go well with my photography.
I also wanted to say that there’s so much you can do with a speedlight. I usually employ my XPLOR 600 for on location portrait shoots, but on a heavily clouded day you can use a speedlight and a small soft box to create some soft fill and make the catch lights really pop. I want to try doing some before and after examples to really show off how little power you need to achieve a flattering look.
