Part 2 of High Key, Wild Color and Filters

I’m still playing with my new set of filters – Color Efex Pro 3.0. Here’s a sample using one of the filters, Cross Processing. I have used a number of cross processing filters in the past, and this one is already one of my favorites. Also, I should mention that within the filter, you can make adjustments. In this one, I chose the “B02” cross processing style.




VIP ALERT:
And here’s the rest of the second set of photos from the shoot, most with filters applied, just for the VIPs… šŸ˜‰ Let me know what you think!!! šŸ™‚ XOXOXOXO

High Key, Wild Color and Filters… VIP Part 1

On Sunday night, I did a multi-part VIP shoot. I am still working with the images, and I will be making a video describing the exact steps in selecting the wardrobe, setting up the studio, lighting, and camera, and the post-processing. Basically, I will tell you everything that you need to duplicate the look of this shoot. Also, I am experimenting with Nik Color Efex Pro 3.0, so I’m a bit filter-happy at the moment!

Here is an unfiltered promo shot šŸ™‚

VIPs, log in to see the first batch!
