Images taken during a workshop with Jean Noir.
Classical portraits shot in the Jean Noir studios with Merle. This set is more of my natural style and we did it at the end of the day to relax. I have to say that it was really cool and easy going to work with Merle.
Does this portrait really need to be sharp? From my point of view I prefer to work manually – as I do here – and capture some moods rather than concentrating on the autofocus.
But most of the time I work like everybody with my autofocus going for the front eye.
Here some more classical style portraits.
I love these moments when the model is not posing anymore – or at least so professional that it does not look like posed. It is all about slowing down.
Here one final detail her eyes but this time heavily processed in Photoshop and Lightroom.
A chair and window light in a quite litte room. No studio lights, no reflectors, no flash or any other artificial giving the model all attention and room to express.
Even when the light was simple I reworked it in Lightroom and Photoshop to create this vintage blue-green look that does fit to her eye color.
Simple and sensual studio shooting in natural light with Caroo. We took some time after work and profit from the natural light left on a early October day here in Belgium.
I played around with Lightroom and Photoshop to create a desaturated but still rich nude look
And here a more dense interpretation of the same light. The black shirt let us focus on the face and the only real color is the lipstick.
Mayra first time in studio in natural light. No Makeup.
Some on the fly outdoor shots right after the studio work.
