This is an excellent method for correct color in a static architectural situation. The beauty is that it can color correct may different colors... tungsten, fluorescent and daylight... all in one process. I came up with this to combat crazy colors in a school that is closing after over 100 years of operation. My dad, I, and my kids attended it, so it has nostalgic value to me and others who might enjoy the photos.
I don't know if this has ever been done, and if not it needs a name. Until I hear a better name, I'll call it "Color Stacking".
In the first image, it's clear that the color is incorrect. That's to be expected since it's fluorescent lighting recorded in daylight balance. This will provide the brightness of the final image.
The second image was color "corrected" using a gray card to attempt to neutralize the fluorescent light. Clearly not acceptable. Fluorescent lights have an incomplete color spectrum.
The third image was bounced flash. It could also be a broad light source such as a softbox or umbrella behind the camera. This will provide the color for the final image. Place this image on top of the original image and use the "color" layer blending mode in Photoshop (or "luminosity" if it's placed below the original image).
The fourth image is the result of those two images.
Since this is done in separate exposures, this isn't for a subject that would move between exposures.

After photographing the musician, Fred, with his instruments a few weeks ago , it occurred to me that I should photograph just the instruments with a light painting technique. It's a tedious process that results in one image per subject. But I love the end result! The cool thing is that this technique can be done with a car, motorcycle, or even a small treasured keepsake. I'll be playing with other objects in the future!

Model Call for high school junior models... with a with strong cheekbone structure. I need to teach photographers a lighting style for faces with sculptured cheekbones like these. (No charge for the studio session. I like to use high school juniors so I can use that for double duty... to help spread the good word about our senior photography to that upcoming class.) Here are examples of some past seniors I photographed with the types of faces I need for the lighting style I'll be teaching.
This will be taking place early in April at my studio. Please message me a photo of yourself so I can determine if you look will work for this job. Or email them to me... email@example.com
The transition from little kid to teenager is when they get overlooked for freezing that moment in a professional portrait. Yes, we take snapshots ALL. THE. TIME. But where are those now... buried in a phone or in a computer or worse yet, deleted? A wall portrait of your son or daughter at this age can do wonders for their self esteem at a time when they might be needing a lift. And of course, this becomes a timeless treasure. Wall portraits are the very best value of all the items we sell because you see and enjoy them everyday. Here are a few examples of what we can do. Don't you wish YOU had a portrait like this when you were at that age?
