now that sounds like it would be fun to work on...

if i am not mistaken, after the shoot, annie went and shot some landscapes (you can see it the end of the video) which later used in the second shot.

IMO the lighting looks simple, and its just soft big source. I do like the color, but it is not realistic, looks like heavy dodge and burn, selective color balance, and prob a lot of filter or color overlays. And if you have a few minutes with the quenn, why would you want to shoot with the hasselblad? that camera shoots at 2 frames per hour, where the files from the mk2, or mk3 for that matter will be just as good....obviously. besides, not everyone can afford 40k for a mf digital camera...esp someone like Annie Liebowitz hahahhaha

Re: How to: "Annie leibovitz' Queen Elizabeth" loo

Millions of people paint their appartments when they move houses.

Thousands of people make a living as a house painter.

But there was only one Michelangelo...



I wonder how many people who just finished painting their apartment look at the paint-bucket, see there is some color left and then go to the internet and ask "Hey, how do I make a Leonardo da Vinci painting?"

Re: How to: "Annie leibovitz' Queen Elizabeth" loo

that really didnt make any sense. But, if you are seriously comparing AL to Michaelangelo, then your on crack. lets do apples to apples here, im sure michaelangelo didnt roll in with a Dewalt air compressor and a wagner spray gun, and a bunch of $5/hr assistants, shoot the ceiling, with a base coat and then hand the rest of the job off to a retoucher to finish it off. That guy gets props becasue he did it all himself. Word around the campfire is that he made the red color in the paint with his own blood, and the browns were made from his....well you get the point. None the less, those two clowns arent even in the same league, sport, or arena for that matter.

But to get back on track, nobody still has answered the original question anyway.

whoa dude, if your implying that the shot(s) is what it is, because of post production, that's just uncool. i'm not saying retouching doesn't play its part, but she is far from someone who presses a button and leaves the rest up to someone else to fix.
