Since I use a pretty similar editing process on all of my photos, I will describe the process here. In Photoshop I always use the levels, curves, and vibrancy adjustment layers. I often use the sharpening tool on the subject’s eyes. On many of the photos I used the dodge and burn tools to adjust the lighting and shadows in the photos. Most of the photos have an added vignette. Some photos I used the color match tool to adjust the colors to that of a photo that had better coloring.
For these first two photos I used a speed light to the left of the model to form a triangle between myself, the light, and the model. In the first photo the model was instructed to act like an angry school teacher. In the second she was asked to toss an apple up a couple of times.
For this photo there was a flash lighting on the model from the left, once again creating a triangle between myself, the model, and the light. The model pulled out a gun and I asked him to point it at me. He made a snarling type face which is what makes this one of my favorite photos.
This photo had a fill light off to the left side of the model. I really liked this photos because I think seeing the side of the building adds some interesting depth.
The rest of the photos were done using all natural light.
