Alyssa #2

Here's another photo of Alyssa. Unfortunately the weather turned pretty cold and rainy when were were shooting on Saturday, so we changed locations form the Strand to a covered area near the medical library on the UTMB campus. Sepia conversion was done with Nik Silver Efex, and in Photoshop I also did some minor perspective correction to the repeating columns in the background. Camera settings: Nikon D200, 85mm, 1/320 sec at f/1.4, off-camera flash from high and to the right - high speed sync to add to the limited depth of field I was going for.


  1. Nice conversion to sepia. Love the controlled DOF using high speed sync and the wide open aperture of the 85mm. I also like the diagonal lines going back. I think the time you took for perspective correction was worth it too.

  2. Very nice Steve! I like your choice of location, composition, pose and lighting!

    Well done!
