Golden Girl by Johanne Brunet

A promotional shot for Lisa’s photography business. I added the gold tone because it is called Golden Photographie

This is a studio shot of my friend Lisa Bolduc, a young and talented photographer that I met last September at my workplace. We are both attending the same photography school as well, and last week, Lisa has kindly accepted to model for me during a class project on studio portrait.

Focal length 42mm
Aperture f/13
Shutter 1/125 sec.

Nikon D60
AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f3.5-5.6G VR

Shot in a studio using one flash head with a large softbox, plus a hair light and a reflector, on a black seamless background.

    Fantastic image….Lisa must be really thrilled with this. I like the idea of the gold tone to reflect her business :)

  • Thank you Shelly! In fact, Lisa has not seen this one yet. I’m going to upload it to FB and tag her in a few minutes, so she will see it when she gets back from school. :-)

    What a beautiful portrait! Love the golden tones! Did you add that in camera or in post processing?

  • Thank you Joanne! It was added in during PP in Lightroom. I converted to grayscale, then added split toning and played with other adjustments like curves, brigthness and contrast.
