To continue with the “From the Archives” series, I wanted to share one of my all-time favorites that I shot of the talented model/actor/singer/dancer, DJ Rouse.
I chose this image because I originally processed it with this not-so-nice, greenish tint that looked kinda funky, but didn’t bring out the full potential of the image. Since it was originally processed poorly, with fresh eyes and my new Lightroom Presets, I saw some potential with this image with the new post-processing. I am very happy with the results.
Session Notes: This was shot in natural light, mid-day, with my trusty old Nikon D70 and my 50mm f/1.4. I shot it in RAW and processed in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. We had just poured water all over his head with a jug so he had kind of a wet appearance. He was a good sport and went along with it for some pretty cool results. This was re-processed with Steller Lightroom Presets (Gray Craze Warmer).
Here is the original RAW file next to the Gray series preset, Gray Craze Warmer. This is only one of the 52 presets included!
