Lady of the Lake Kelsy – Test Shoot

Wanting to include more ‘people’ in some of my work. This weekend stepped outside the show for a few minutes to do some ‘test shots’ of Kelsy. Bad, bad mid-day sun, but overcome with some digital work. Often see awful skin-tones on multiple-exposure work, but so far not too bad. Some basic touch-up but being test shots, not too worried about it…

That worked out OK, so lets try putting one of the trailer shots in an ‘environment’. I shot a stone bridge earlier that morning over at the Festival Institute and thought that might make an interesting backdrop. Lighting matched ok, and liked the sun tunnel effect. Masking ect, really over-sharpened this puppy, and toned down the vibrancy quite a bit.

Not too bad for something unplanned. Kelsy is quite expressive and hope to get to do some real shots soon ๐Ÿ™‚
