Our friend and RE member Busby Wilder got his hands on Ariel this fall, and he's been kind enough to share some of
the lovely photos they took. I think like many of us when we're just starting out with something, he's bursting with
ideas but a little overwhelmed by the technical steps you need to translate that vision in your head to something
which at least roughly resembles it on a screen or on paper where other people can see it.
He said the thing which he struggled with most was processing the photos once they'd been shot, so he's asked me
to put together a tutorial on photoshop/post-processing, which I'm putting together now. It is only when you sit down
to explain what you do that you realise there's a lot of steps in going from a good shot on the memory card to a
polished and finished photo to put on the website- there's a whole bunch of controls to twiddle, and the best results
always come from a circular process of tweaking one thing in the direction you want, then counterbalancing it with another
to pull back some over-the-top thing it has produced. It made me realise that stuff I now do by instinct- adjusting the
colour temperature, saturation, vibrancy, exposure and tone curves all together in a push-pull process- was something
I had to figure out how to do. It's that sort of thing which lets you keep warm skin tones, without pushing the whites of
the eyes to orange (which I hope Busby won't mind me pointing out has happened with the Antlers shots in particular).
But what's the main thing to take away from looking at Busby's shots? I think it is that with a great model and an
eye for a photograph, you can make some super fun and sexy shots, whatever your level of (in-)experience. I know both
Ariel and Busy had a great time shooting these, and I hope you really enjoy looking at them!
