I have been asked about workflow many times

how I process my images… well here is a quick breakdown..

I tend to just do it this way.. it works for me.. many might think it is not correct.. but as I recall in many conversations with many photographers – it is not as much how you get there.. as long as you get there…..wherever there is for you….

This was shot in 2004 – one of my first ever glamour style shoots.. it is not an amazing image, but it shows workflow and how with some photoshop knowledge, some presets and plugins and some experimentation you can make cool looking images..

I could teach just about anyone how to do these steps in about an hour.. how you use the steps in a creative fashion is key to the results you might think you want….but none of the steps in these photos were anything super tricky … I sort of want to really learn the super tricky photoshop stuff but I never seem to have the time to dedicate to it that it will require… so experimentation is where I stand at the moment…

This entire editing process took no more than 10-15 minutes resulting in two images I like and could use for my portfolio… if others like them is a totally different story…

    Perfection is relative to time….this perfect fitness is valid till mankind lives. Beautiful. The subject must be really working hard at it…..

    I do not know if its your processing or deliberate lighting and placement of the subject combined but, the concentration of light in the centre with the subject almost lining the its periphery gives a contrasting effect that highlights the subject and its presence. A good effort. One suggestion….if the light in the centre could be slightly lower so that its concentration in the region where the right towel hangs….could give better clarity to the background….making it a perfect effort. But, its a real good one…no doubt about it.

    A confession….I looked at this multiple times…..in a very appreciative way….. We got to agree….the subject has worked really hard to maintain herself. Deserves appreciation…
