Re: Selfie a la Master Ernst

Really nice series of portraits Duck and great to see you messing around... Thank you, Ernst. The glass distortion is something I discovered after the fact, so that was a learning experience. My wife stopped by the studio yesterday and we messed around (not that way :stop:) and her it did definitel...

Re: Walk With Me

I have to agree with Chuck, this is gorgeous in its stark simplicity. One may even call this a textbook composition, it is so clean.

Re: Selfie a la Master Ernst

I went back to the basic with this one. Single light camera left, reflector camera right, BG light behind subject. I kept about a 2:1 ratio and played with it in post. 90% Lightroom, 10% Photoshop. Grain added in post.
