Watch This BTS Of An Editorial Photoshoot

Check out a BTS editorial shoot with Brandon Hill. When i first started watching this video I was not expecting a solid finished product, but i quickly ate my own words after seeing the final photos. From looking at the images on the camera to the final product it is evident that Brandon, or a retoucher, did an excellent job in post. It is interesting how adding a different BG color can make the image come alive. It's also apparent that Brandon knows his light ratios very well. These portraits only being done with 2 softboxes is quite impressive. That rim light has just enough kick to separate it, but still have plenty of detail in it, a very delicate ratio. Hope you were able to learn something. Check out his website to view more of his work.

Thanks for posting Thomas, great BTS. What I want to know is why is Steve Martin ripping up French bread?

Like mentioned in the first comment, this is a repost. Another contributor posted the same BTS 10 days ago. To me this characterizes what FStopper.com has become since the addition of too many contributors: few quality posts and too much uninteresting stuff. I wish Lee and Patrick take a serious action and put some order back.

Fun. I like that the "stand-in" crew member had the same shirt. Nice touch. Fine work.
