Portrait Ella II

April 24, 2020

This had a bit of a Marie Antoinette inspiration. My work is inspired by Renaissance old master paintings so my soft lighting and editing style will reflect that look. Nikon D750, 85mm, f/5.6, ISO160, 1/200. Two light setup. One key light camera left in 60" octa, and one 7' parabolic diffused behind camera for fill. Edited in Camera RAW, Ps and Exposure Software.

I noticed the hand. Check out the painter Anthony van Dyck. He did arm and hand placement like no one I've ever seen.

Love your work! I've been looking at Gravity backdrops. Do you use these or something else? Backgrounds are so important and the ones you use really add to the overall feel of your images.

Thank you! Gravity makes great backdrops, but I don't own one. I have one from Fine Art Backdrops, and Portrait Drops. Many times I just use gray seamless and add a texture in post.
