So I haven't been putting details lately since I wasn't getting scores good enough to get them looked at. I guess that changed with this one.
Thanks a ton, guys! I was really proud of this shoot, and am very glad you, too, liked it.
This was shot in my home studio against a purple (Orchid, to be precise) paper backdrop. From camera left, an AB-400 strobe in a beauty dish. From camera right, an SB-600, bare and aimed at the violins, and an SB-900, snooted at his shoulder/hair.
The color came from a curious post-processing effect. In Lightroom, I used the Library setting "B/W-Low Contrast," then decided I didn't want it to be B/W. When I went into Develop and turned up the saturation, I realized that part of the b/w conversion involved this odd color shift. I liked it, and ran with it. Photoshop post involved some cleaning up of shadows and vignetting.
