The Sheik's Daughter !
Model Brenda looks sharp for our catalog shoot. She was wearing grey leggings, black lace top and a fancy headband with a sequin emblem on the front. This trendy look could have been found on young ladies having fun at a ski lodge resort lounge.
While shooting with various props, I suggested she place a wool scarf over her head and then her nice headband over that. Upon leaning to her left and giving an intense gaze, a wonderful look was captured. Even silent screen legend Rudolf Valentino would be amazed!
Two studio lights, left/right, on white background, 7 inch reflectors, .5 stops over front lighting.
Two strip lights, left/right and behind model pointing at her sides, intensity equal to front lighting.
Overhead 24" x 36" soft box, 1 stop over front lighting.
Two extreme silver PLM 86" umbrellas with diffusion sock, left/right at front, set equal distance from model, 45 degrees to model
Photoshop Image Processing:
Background image duplicated, extracted with quick selection tool and placed on a new layer with layer mask.
Under the above layer a white layer is created which now gives image a pure white background for catalog look.
Retouching was done with the healing brush, replace mode, to remove some stray hair from the scarf, lace blouse and side of the face. Slight smile line was removed.
Non destructive dodge/burn was done by creating new layer, fill with 50% gray and using soft brushes of various sized on soft light blend mode at 3% opacity. White brush lightens/black,darkens.
