Body Painting at Zoom Experience 2009
This weekend I visited the fair called Zoom Experience. It's all about photography, lighting, processing, cameras, lenses, printing, software, modeling and much more. Besides the many workshops about all kind of items (like Lightroom, Wacom tablets, color calibration, lighting the body, fashion photography), there were many opportunities to shoot various subjects, models, shows and events. One of them was a body painter at work. It was quite impressive.
TECH-INFO: Many visitors on the fair had very long lenses and (bulky) on-camera flashes covered with diffuser domes to spread the light all around (I really don't get it why they use them in open spaces with telephoto lenses, probably they sponsor battery companies). I on the other hand used my fast favorite prime lens, mainly because it was way too crowded to set up some lighting stuff.
I enhanced the image in Photoshop by darkening the background and spicing up the foreground colors, all done by several masked adjustment layers. Especially handy was the color selective tool to tweak the red, yellow, blue, green, white and black tones.
