Vintage Feeling

Post by cyclohexane » Thu Aug 13, 2015 8:31 pm

An image of the inimitable Moxie Macabre from when I was in the studio with Bobby Deal last year.

Lit with his collection of old school cinema fresnels and barn doors.

Framing wasn't perfect but I liked this one better than some of the other similar ones from this portion of the set. Felt like I was watching an old movie or something.

Camera is Leica Monochrom, so no conversion here; pretty much straight out of Capture One 8. Lens is a vintage Leitz Wetzlar 9cm f/2.8 Elmarit.

A nice reminder that portraits and such do not always require soft lighting. :)

A very nice cinematic look. Hat lit enough to break away the subject from the background. If using P/S you can use the crop tool to enlarge the canvas on left side, but that is your decision.
Perhaps rotate the head more towards the camera so that her right eye doesn't look suspended in space?
kind regards;

Thanks, Ed.

Here's one with a better right eye, at least:
