Melanie Posterized

Recently, I had the pleasure of shooting for the second time with Melanie, a young French model. Here’s one of the closeup portraits we did. Faithful readers will recall I often try to work hands into my portraits to add character and expression.

After making this fairly traditional edit in Photoshop, I decided to try a posterized version, which appears below.


The posterized effect is an “artistic filter” in Photoshop. What do you think? Not to everyone’s taste for sure, but I think it works well for this photograph. To see the posterization more clearly, I’ve put a closeup detail of this image below.

Your comments and reactions are most welcome – either on the blog, in an email or a comment on my Facebook page.

Working both in the studio and on location, photographer Blake Robinson serves the Connecticut communities of Darien, New Canaan, Stamford, Norwalk, Westport and Greenwich.
