Re: Calvin does Jill

Hi
I am not sure if i shpuld be happy or worry about the thread "Calvin does Jill".
Is it Jill when i use two striplights and a spot in the background? Hmmm....
Of course my inspiration come from a Jill Greenberg picture, but i dont take pictures of crying babys and i use a other technique to create a picture like that.
My spot in the background is also cleaner or rounder the Jills.
Anyway... if you have any questions let me know.
Its easy to do a picture like that.

lg Calvin

Re: Calvin does Jill

Just my sense of humor indicating that your wonderful pics are lit with the style I come to know as Jill Greenbergs popular series of head shots. Basically its what comes to mind when I see images in that style. I guess we always associate looks and styles with the ones we seen the most of in popular culture. A pure complement nothing more nothing less.

My biggest questions is how do you get the shiny skin tones have such pop and character to me love to under stand how it was achieved...

Re: Calvin does Jill

Hi
Heres the out of cam file

I dont retouch so much. Of course a little bit dodge and burn but most of the retouching is adding the color on the background and adding the spot.

That takes 5 min. :-)
