Lady blue



We wanted an image that reflected the tones we were working with as well as a desire to use highlights in a dark image.

Behind The Lens

Location
This shoot was taken in the studio I have set up in my garage, I'm based right outside Atlanta Ga. in a city called Decatur. It's pretty warm year round and doesn't get too cold even when it isn't.
Time
I took this shot at 7:30 pm but the studio are is blacked out so time of day doesn't matter much.
Lighting
I wanted a bit of drama and mystery in this image, while still showing her beauty. So, the fade from shadow to light back to shadow (Left to Right) seemed to work.
Equipment
I shot this with my old 5D MKII, 24-105mm kit lens, 47mm, F8.0, 1/125, ISO 100
Inspiration
I was trying to learn more about working with tones in post and wanted to see how well I could apply the tonal changes to shadow rich images. We had set up another shot and I had her move her wrist to get the bracelet back in the line with the light. She moved around, shook her hair and we were set.
Editing
I wanted to cool (actually warm) the tone across shadow and light and still be able to see the tonal changes in the details engulfed in shadow.
In my camera bag
canon 5D MKII, 50mm, 70/200mm, 2 speedlights, extra batteries, extra cards, small round reflector, sekonic light meter (old school I know), color checker, bag of almonds.
Feedback
If I were to give any advice I would tell you to experiment as much as you can. To be a bit more specific for this piece or ones like it, although you are playing with shadows don't allow the shadows to overtake the detail you are attempting to change tonal.
