Post-production technique
I did a layer to lighten up the model's eyes and the right side of her face, then applied a duo-tone effect to create a moody sepia-ish feel, then did a layer to remove the background and create a vignette/spotlight look, plus one final curves layer to brighten the highlights and glow on the skin to heighten the drama. I used a Wacom Bamboo pen and tablet throughout the process. Thanks for looking, and have a great day!
What was your vision for your finished image?
This was a fun shoot at an auction house, and my model, Morgan Purdy, was having a blast with the vampire role. I loved the idea of the vampire getting her hair done under the vintage dryer, and "vamping" it up, but the background was distracting. I hope I was able to minimize it and create that glamorous, but also campy, vampy, and fun look.
