Natasha, a photo by The Real Darren Stone on Flickr.

This is shot with one White Lightning X1600 and a beauty dish. You can see the dish reflected in the glasses. The light created is between that of a direct flash and a softbox, hence giving the image a contrasted look, which adds a dramatic effect. Post-processing ws minor touch up and Polapan film emulation with Alien Skin Exposure CS5 plug-in. Polapan was a Polaroid slide film that gave accidental blue/pink colour shifts.

  1. I love the colours, the model’s expression and the light quality from the beauty dish.
