Smile How to: "Christian Schmidt" Look

white white white.

Re: How to: "Christian Schmidt" Look

Very nice pictures....i would probably have to guess that its some major lighting trick....i wish i could develop some radiant pictures....but i have nothing but a digital camera lol...no lights or anything

i would like to know how those are done...if not by lighting techniques

Saby really like your result and this sort of style, but I don't understand your workflow ( sounds very technical) could you explain it a bit more, like is it done in ps ? or is it some other software
