Our son was in town yesterday and Mom wanted me to shoot some photos of them.....originally in color. A good test again for my new equipment: one light head and umbrella.....

Turned the original into black/white using Photoshop and chose Spotlight feature....kinda like it.....

Cosmetically, I removed the wife's crow's feet around the eyes, smoothed out her skin tones, removed all natural skin blemishes from both of them...gave Taka a digital 'shave' hehehe!

but if you could tone down the over flash on Taka, it would be perfect.

BTW...Mrs Thian is a hot looking lady!

highlight/shadow exposure....the umbrella was on my shooting left side, so Taka got 1\2 stop more light....I was rushing the shoot....but did move the wife around closer to the plane of focus, which was Taka...

make them glamorous in the western sense ....since the average woman here (over 40) never gets the chance or can find a studio to shoot my western style.....the wife wants our photos to be DIFFERENT! Of course, testing Taka, aged 23, was also the object of my testings.....

Strippers here?? only in Tokyo and Osaka bars, I think.......been there...done it  )))))

... lookin'n good Thain-san I like the color shot better. Digital B&W unless printed in a certain manner just does'nt make it as B&W. My daughter, who's a pro photog has returned to B&W FILM for her B&W work as have a couple of my other photog freinds. But as was when digital first came out, the B&W will get better:) Onward thru the Fog

... especially the one of your wife! The pic of your son has the same purple look that much of the current lab proccessing has these days. Since most of them use the C-41 color chemicals for all of there work and process on color paper one gets P&W prints. You got some good BLACKS in the pic of your wife. I have to pay extra to get my B&W film processed in "traditional" B&W processes but at least theu are B&W The pose and shot of your son are GREAT ( tell him to loose the cig:) ) just the color renedition of the print

BTW, get the Bronica as you can use Nikkor glass
