Hi there all good people!
Today, I am bringing you a quick composite image and a headshot of course, of a young generation actress www.ulazawadzka.com
I used to work with Ula previously, but when I photographed her boyfriend Darek Wieteska, also a very talented actor, she had an idea of being photographed as Cleaopatra. And so we did…
I am always amazed, by the fact, how well prepared she is for the shoot, how many ideas she has and how well all the pieces fit together.
So, to make a long story short, there are 2 images here:
1. A quick composite of image of Darek and Ula and couple of textures of smoke. All I did is, placing smoke several time into the image, change the blend mode of placed layers into ‘Screen’ and than mask out a bit and tweek opacity.
THan I have added some text to create a poster look.
Total retouching time: 10min
2. A headshot of Cleopatra – this one is taken with beauty dish and only beauty dish. NO fills, no thrills to this shot.
Postprocessed in PS CS5 and Alien Skin Exposure for b&w conversion and there you ahve it!
Total retouching time: 20min
Hope you enjoy!
