A new Hair Cut


She just had a new hair cut and asked me to take a couple of pictures. It was a pleasure doing that.


TECH-INFO: it was a good opportunity to test my new 105cm white shoot-through umbrella. To emulate the beauty look, I placed the umbrella high right behind me. You can clearly see it in the reflection of her eyes. It is almost lights like an octa-box which is heavily used for beauty shoots. Behind the model is a second speedlight flash, on a stand, pointed to the wall. It lights the wall so strongly that it becomes fully white. This forms some kind of back lighting.
Not much post processing was done, DxO for RAW conversion, some skin softening with Portraiture and (only) eye sharpening with the smart sharpen filter in Photoshop.
