In a recent studio shoot with Amelia, a NYC-based actor and graduate student in drama education, we created this glamour image. The original image is shown below; the image above is a “high key” version.
The high key look is very popular today in fashion magazines – bright, dramatic, but still maintaining sharp details. From my original image file, I converted to a high key look with NIk Color Efex Pro, a terrific “plug-in” software that works with Adobe Photoshop. The conversion took just a few clicks – doing it manually would have been a fair amount of time-consuming work.
Which version of the image do you like better? I’d love to hear from you!
