Ok so maybe a little bit of a play on words there with the title but I just couldn’t resist posting these two images taken the other day whilst in the studio…
The little man here is Luke, who if I remember correctly was playing Spiderman on his Dad’s iPhone 4 which as you can see looks like a game that’s both intense and surprising all in one 🙂
Luke’s the son of David Kelly aka @norn_ironman (pictured below) who popped by the studio the other day when I was again running through some set ups for my new workshop series “From Concept to Print” [Link]. Now when I say ‘popped by’ he actually drove one and a half hours to bring a house warming present for Anne and me but you know that’s a perfect example of the kind of person he is; incredibly generous and supportive plus always a laugh to be had in his company…an all round good guy!
Carrying on from Monday’s post here’s an example of a ‘Before‘ and ‘After‘ shot of Luke along with the lighting set up and a quick run through of what editing was involved to get the final look:
LIGHTING SET UP:
For this couple of shots of Luke, the lighting set up was exactly the same as that used when photographing Zim [Link] with the only difference being that everything was lower…alot lower 🙂
- Brighten/Sharpen Eyes
- Add Contrast to Skin using RGB Channel
- Dodging & Burning 1
- Double RAW Conversion on clothing
- Dodging & Burning 2 (High Speed Technique)
- Enhance Details / Add Texture
- Add Background ‘Spotlight’

More to come this week including some fantastic developments with the NAPP UK [Link] and on Friday I’ll be posting my interview with Photoshop Guy Matt Kloskowski. I’m really looking forward to sharing what Matt had to say; tons of information and as you’d expect accompanied by some killer photography!
