At Peace

Shot from the BCG Portrait Shoot.

This is Jalissa.

Intentionally processed with a cool tone to match the pose.

    That was the plan ;-)

    It reminds me of the model shoot I did at Rookwood Cemetery.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Simon.
  • David de Groot said:
    Yeah, same sort of feel. Had a play with Greg C's 85/1.2L today as well - fantastically sharp in the 1mm deep section you get focus on ;-) This one is with my 70-200/2.8L though.

  • David de Groot said:
    Well I didn't go shoot a sunset afterall ;-) (although I did detour on the way home to shoot a background for a job I have).
    Thanks Rodel. :)
    She was somewhat uncomfortable, but managed to pull off serene quite well.

    Nice work on the PP. I like the cool tones. Contrasts well with the BG.
    EDIT: Just thinking, this'd make a very nice advert for an earphone company (if she was wearing earphones!)

    That's a different way of looking at it Tim.

    Very good result David, it seems she is floating.
    The atmosphere reminded me of that Nick Cave and Kylie video,
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Jack. Yeah it has a cinematic quality to it I'll agree.
