Shot this last night in the VIP lounge at Ruby Kitchen for this month's Footdown flyer. I left the extra space up top when composing to leave the graphic designer room for the text. I'm going to start trying to do write ups and diagrams again like I used to back in the good ol' days, so here goes:


Main: alien bee's b1600 boomed up high for top lighting turned all the way up and plugged into it's own vagabond
Rim: white lightning x3200 raised up seven feet and angled down and set to half power. plugged into it's own vagabond. 10 degree grid spot to cut back on flare.

Photoshop: Increased fill light in raw before moving picture from lightroom 2 to cs4. Selected subjects, bike, and couch using polyganol and magnetic lasso to drop the background to black. Dodged highlights, added lucis on the whyeth setting but applied locally using a layer mask. Color balance layer to add more yellows to highlights and blues to shadows. Ran Elmakias "Deep Tone" action. Smart Sharpened.
