Celina and Her Boss

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 16 December 2015 in People & Portrait.

The lady on the right is my friend, Celina. I've known her for thirty years; we worked together for a good portion of that time. She's a beautiful, as is obvious, smart, and hard working individual. She received a service award and asked me to photograph the occasion. So, I gave it a try.

The lighting was a combination of diffused speedlight, off camera, and overhead light of unknown type. Plus, a bit of window light was bouncing around. I used an X-Rite Colorchecker Passport to get my colors correct. It's an easy to use tool that works like magic.

My Spotlighted Images

I'll be busy the next few weeks. Commenting will be spotty at best.

This is a very successful portrait. Portrait is rarely easy, because the color and many other aspects are very individualized.

Very good light avoiding a flat looking face. Well done. The X- rite colorchecker passport has produced very pleasant and naturally looking skin's tonalities.
