This might be the wrong place for this but one of my friends just posted the cover of vibe magazine with Kanye, Common and John Legend, and the suits hurt my eyes just to look at them. What do yall think? Sorry I can't post a shot but it's the second image in a google search for "vibe cover kanye common legend"
Not sure if this is a 'proper' link since it's not directly from the source, per potn rules

Good control of contrast, especially to have made it through the print process.

That's a technically very tough shot. Dark skin and white suits. Must have been lots of PP.

If you're shooting RAW, which I'm sure they are, it's nothing that you can't take care of rather easily in PP.

It's probably a composite--the photographer probably didn't get all three of the artists together at one session--but it does not take post processing to get that subject contrast control. It just takes careful lighting and exposure.

This looks easy to me...expose for the skin in one shot and expose for the suits in another. Blend them together in PS by masking away. Then bring the suits up during PP as needed, I dont see how this is so hard.

@OP yeah the highlights are a tad much for my tastes but it seems to work.

Hence my comment must have been lots of PP. But technically tougher to shoot than the norm.

It is do-able in one exposure. This is where knowing the craft of lighting and exposure comes into play.

I only know who Common is because I watch Hell on Wheels.

But it seems well controlled.

The photographer might of also used a camera with a high dynamic range which would allow for the shot to be taken with one exposure.
