New, 100% Natural! Zero light augmentation and no Photoshop filters

These are the scariest images to post… straight out of the camera – no beauty filters, just some cropping and a tiny contrast boost here and there. I love my strobes, speedlights, cords, cables, etc… but for this shoot, I left them all behind… just afternoon sun through a single window (and a chair, some books, and an IKEA coffee cup and saucer).

Here’s the promo shot…

As you can see, no magic here, just a great camera (D300s) and nature’s own light. D300s set at aperture priority, f2.8, and ISO ranging from 400 to 1600 depending on the angle of the shot. Most of the shots are spot-metered on my face, some with 1 stop of negative exposure compensation. Questions? secrets@snapchick.com
