In class with Rob Sheppard this week.  The class is putting some end of week slide shows together in Lightroom for a final review and critique.

The image above is from our Digital Figure class a couple weeks ago.  I shot the image with a Canon EOS 5D Mk II, EF 24-70mm f/2.8L, and our ProFoto D1 Air system.  I processed the image in Lightroom and then sent to Photoshop CS4 for editing.  I also brought Topaz Detail into the mix and used some blend mode changes on the resultant layers.

I wanted a high contrast, high saturation, slightly painted look and am happy so far with the results.  Need to work a few more ideas through.  The basic advice of "Don't be afraid to play around" helped me with this one.

Fiat Lux!
