Portraiture work, running topic

Recommended Posts

Apparently it's the weekend of headshots. :lol:

 

My wife needed a headshot for her student card at teacher's college (don't ask me why they didn't take it themselves, I've never seen it done this way before). It's supposed to be pretty plain, so I just did one light.

Hi Guys,

 

attachted two portraits both taken with X-T1 and the XF 90mm. The first picture (shot at f2 at 1/750 sec.) is available light only ("golden hour sunset"), the second picture (shot at f8 at 1/180 sec.) was lit with a strobe and a 50cm Beauty Dish.

From my point of view the results one can get from the XF 90mm are supreme. I also own the XF 56mm but most of the time I favor the compression the XF 90mm gets me. Though you have to take into consideration that you need significant more distance to you subject what can be an issue if you are in a tight place or if you are aiming for a more intimate look. In terms of postproduction: Both pictures are RAWs converted with Capture One and retouched (picture1 only color graded) in Photoshop. (SOOC Jpegs, for this kind of work? Not on my page!)

 

Cheers!

Markus

I did a job today shooting portraits for a local financial group. There's some staged stuff indoors that looks like stock photography :lol: but for the nicer portraits I shot them outside - it was too cramped in the building and I couldn't find a nice background. It was beautifully overcast today, so I didn't have to light them.

 

All shot with the 35mm. The outdoor stuff is I believe f/4 for the group and 2.8 for the rest.

And this is what the indoor stuff was like. Not sure if this counts as portraiture or not. :lol:
