DJ FIZZA came to us looking for an update on her current photos, so we setup in our studio and got to work. creating an edgy dark look for the first two edits. We used a two light setup to achieve this with one with a 22″ beauty dish overhead and one large soft box to fill the rest that needed filling. We had Fizza stand a few feet away from our white background which allowed us to adjust and monitor the darkness of the back ground and make her pop off the backdrop.
Editing was just a simple process, she has great skin to start so blemish removal was minimal. a once over with Imagenomic Portraiture was more than good enough to perfect any minor imperfections. The majority of the rest of the edit was selective dodging and burning to pop highlights and darken shadows and contour areas that needed shaping. On the top photo once all the editing was complete we threw on a light blue tint to cool down the skin tones and give the photo a dark effect.
All in all the shoot went quite well with Fizza being open to trying new things and comfortable in front of the camera. It was very easy to get the images we were looking for. We can’t wait to get her back in studio for another session sometime soon!
