Jen – Natural Light
No fancy lighting trick here. Just beautiful Jen with her memorizing eyes. I just love the highlights on her hair. From this angle, she does have a slight resemblance to Jennifer Morrison (House MD). I pre-processed the raw file with Capture NX2 – adjusted the black point to improve contrast (she was slightly back-lit); then just finish up with minor retouches in Photoshop.
I am really happy with how the above picture turned out; hard to take my eyes off. I spent a lot of time cropping; original file was portrait orientation, about 3/4 length. I decided to put the focus on her face and eyes. I placed Jen on the right 1/3, and extended the left side with Photoshop’s content aware fill.
The above picture was taken natural light only; no reflector fill. It was just a corner of a warehouse.
Amazing… isn’t she.
