FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHER – KEVIN COOK
1. Tell us a bit about the image
The image was created with limited equipment. No light rigs, no reflectors. It’s all all natural light with a few enhancements using a light overlay, and a photo action that creates the illusion of off camera lighting. Fall is my favorite time of the year to shoot because the bold colors.
2. What inspired you to take the shot?
The dress inspired me. Anytime you can work with a young man or woman who dresses well for a shoot it will inspired you to dream bigger.
3. What gear did you use for the shot including lighting?
100% ALL natural light. Shot about 30 minutes before sundown.
4. Tell us about the editing process?
I used several kcc actions on this. Autumn days for the tons, perfect skin, and skin tones, bokeh 1.0 and lens filters – warm yellow. A leaf overlay and a light overlay. And pop the subject and light hacks are what makes it look so dramtic. Think the editing video is on our site.
5. How does this piece reflect you as an artist
Most people who follow me as an artist know that I use a lot of rich color, shallow backgrounds to isolate the subject and soft light. I have heard from a lot of people that my photos have a look that is easy to distinguish.
