Here’s a fun outtake from a recent shoot at STUDIO 1444 with one of the sweetest people I have ever met, actress Liz Benoit.
Although the image is anything but sweet, she’s an amazing person who’s personality and positive energy you just can’t help falling in love with.
Aside from being a striking image, it is also interesting, because her skin appears so dark…when in reality she has a pretty fair skin tone.
I was looking to create a sort of Ortho Chromatic effect I learned when working with one of my early mentors, the legendary Philip Dixon.
Heavily reduced Orange and Yellow tones with crushed shadows, and highlight detail.
