PHOTONews Reader's Gallery Flickr Alia Andreas Schneider Wellesley Ontario

Andreas Schneider, of Wellesley, Ontario, captured this image at the Digital Imaging show in Mississauga. A handheld Canon 7D with a 70-200 f2.8L IS lens at 90mm was used. Bowens lighting using a 5’ Octo softbox and 4’ soft strip softbox activated with a wireless trigger provided the perfect light with settings of ISO100 at f6.0 and 1/125. The telezoom lens was used to get closer and have flexibility to concentrate on the feature of the model’s face.
“The unique opportunity to photograph the live art of Natasha Kudashkina in the perfect setting just needed to be taken. (Model:Alia) In conversion from RAW into Photoshop I adjusted the Clarity setting down to -42 to smooth the edges of the colors and reduce the texture of the skin.”
