I thought that it would be nice to share some of my before and after Photoshop photo’s. For me the post editing process is as big a part of my work as the photography itself. My workflow consists of Lightroom for smoothing out the high and low contrasts and setting the basic color tone. After the Lightroom edit I use Photoshop for all the detail retouching like skin, hair, dust, scratches and enhancing color and mood.
This photo, which I called “Paris” because it reminds me of the city, was taken using a Nikon D700 + Nikon 24-70mm f2.8 lens. The lighting was done with a single softbox containing a Nikon sb900 speedlight @1/2 power just left of the camera at the same level as the model. I believe that I did feather it a bit. The mirrors behind the model helped move the light around the scene.
