Timeless Flow

“The subject in this photo is an old high school friend from my native Toronto. She moved out to NYC 3 years ago for work. So when I told her I’d be out in NYC for a few days, we decided to meet up for brunch. I asked her if she’d like to do a quick shoot, and her response was “HECK NO, I’m not a model”. So I scrapped that idea, and just met up with her for brunch. I wasn’t going to bring my camera, but I decided to anyways because this is New York City, I’m bound to find something photo worthy. After brunch, we started goofing off and I busted out my camera and we took random silly pics. I snap a few shots, nothing major. Then she casually flicked her head sideways and her hair just flowed in the wind. I said “OH SNAP!!! DO THAT AGAIN!!!” She did, and we got this AWESOME photo. I brought it up in Lightroom 5, threw on my signature “Relz Life” effect, then in Photoshop CS 5.1, I cross processed it and added some light leaks to give it a more timeless feel.”- Relz Life Photography

    I love the subject. I love the movement. This really looks like a magazine cover shot. However, one thing disturbs me. It has a hazy look to it. There are no really true blacks. Try some contrast boost or clarity boost and see how that works. If you work in Lightroom, try adjusting the black slider.

    Thanks Stephen, however, the hazy look is one of my signature looks that I love. I have added some clarity to it and it looks good as well… thanks for your comment
