Miss Steph Zombie

From a trip to Paris with Miss Steph Zombie​ a few months ago. This was shot on the night we arrived in a beautiful apartment beside the The Louvre.

This was shot with the Nikon D750 and Sigma Art 50mm f1.4,.and was lit with a small speedlight in a 60cm portable softbox. I usually prefer larger modifiers but I was only bringing carry on luggage on this journey. I usually find getting smaller modifiers nice and close still gives a nice soft quality to the light.

50mm · f/2.0 · 1/1600s · ISO 100

tell me what u did to get that skin color?

Dave Kavanagh's picture

It was nothing more then a combination of a stunning model with amazing skin, a bit of side on dramatic lighting and some frequency separation. Colour grading was done with curve adjustment layers.

This is fantastic. The colours and tones make it look almost comic book. Well done.
