Eeewwww!!!! I'd have to find a new hobby!

On humid days down here in FL it can be a lost cause. The flyaways are way too sharp in this. I'll try to tone them down a lil in the final edit, but removing them is way too time consuming for what I charge.

Exactly my point. This young lady - very pretty, reasonably well shot - has this hair that does this. It is too time consuming to correct in PP so smart money is to find a way to shoot it before you touch your camera. I know there is a product called 'frizz-ease', but it is basically mineral oil and I don't know how I feel about putting oil in a clients hair.

This is a question for everyone and not at all a critique: Is there anything that we as a photographer can do to lessen the strays? I have heard of some using a dryer sheer to smooth them down, but if it isn't a static thing I don't see that working.

Open up your bag of tricks and share!


Wow.. Thats a rats nest and a 1/2 right there...If your using CS5 you can use spot healing with content aware.. I would think anything you do will be time consuming and i would charge her accordingly,,,these kids show up to their sessions like this and i cringe...One would think that she would have gone in and got all the split ends cut off and cleaned up before she decided to do her senior pics.........unfortuna​tely they dont:mad:

I had one guy and his mom bring two shirts for the shoot. Both wrinkled like crazy.

Were they the ones that are supposed to be wrinkled? ;)

This is unavoidable in our FL climate. I don't think a hair cut would have helped at all. Of course they are easy to do in Ps if you want to spend that sort of time. No Thanks. I will not for any money. I have a life. :):)

Yep. It was discussed earlier. You probably already read it. Also the edited pic was posted earlier also.

I haven't counted the tries, but it did take several. (notice all the ballons on the ground in the sooc shot.) Thankfully I had Dad's filling the balloons and tossing them.

I love the water shot! It reminds me of this other guy *I cant remember where I seen his work* but he would pour water on his models somehwo and photograph it and then merge all the shots in photoshop so it looks like she was wearing sheets of water. one was really cool where teh water formed angel wings. I guess its pretty messy but I have no clue how he did it. I wish I could remember his name so I could post an example. he was offering in person classes on how to do it but he wasnt anywhere near me.

You're probably thinking of Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz, he's a member of this forum. Their website is www.aurumlight.com (external link), NSFW content.

We had a pretty good Senior session Saturday, here are a few that we ended up with!

Jay, did you design the swirly on the top/bottom yourself, get it off a stock site, or something else? :) Ive been searching for something suitable and not finding anything I like for my new logo. I did finally decide on the two fonts for the business name though! :)

I found the embellishment from a stock site somewhere, then I just flipped it for the bottom.
