Wordy Wednesday #155 “The Return of my Muse”

The response to last Wednesday’s post was so heartening, that I decided to write another post that featuring Tia Stoneman. This portrait also ties together this past Monday’s post about correcting underexposed images (it was made during the same session) and although this was less underexposed than the image featured in that post, I used all of the same techniques to correct this image—before converting it to black and white using Silver Efex Pro before finishing with the Vignette Blur filter form Color Efex Pro.

tia.muse.2This glamour photograph of Tia was shot using a Canon EOS 1D Mark II not the latest model, for sure, but a camera I dearly love when not shooting mirrorless. Lens was an EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III lens (at 85mm) with an exposure of 1/125 sec at f/5 and ISO 640 using available light from a tall thin window at the subject’s right.

Tia is featured on the back cover of my book Posing for Portrait & Glamour Photography. New copies are available as I wrote this, for $14.75 from Amazon—even cheaper than used.
