Kelly with a Texture Layer

Nikon D200, 24-70mm at f6.3 and 1/50th
Post processing:  increased exposure, the recovery slider and blacks in ACR.  In CS3 I ran a Creamsickle action by Kubota that smoothes the skin and adds a punch of color but I masked some of it off her face, hair, shirt and the brick edge to retain detail there, then added a texture layer but masked it off completely from Kelly. Sharpened with the highpass filter in softlight.


  1. Nice relaxed pose with some soft lighting. Nice job.

  2. Love the colors and the pleasing light on Kelly. Nice job controlling shadows.
