I'm just getting ready to head out for our cherry-blossom walk, which is going on along the Shakuji River in northern Tokyo.
A quick posting from the little shoot I did withyesterday. She'll be joining us later today as well: she's at an audition this morning. Good luck, Shinyong!
Shinyong's sort of like my little sister as we have the same birthday, our Chinese sign is the same, we're the same height, similar personality, we get moody at the same time.. happy at the same time. So it's a joy to work with her because we totally understand each other.
My wife, Hiromi, does some part-time work for Shinyong's fashion business. Hiromi says working for Shinyong means it's like having the best and worst of two copies of her husband in her life...
I'm taking the best from that statement.
Poor Hiromi.... :-)
Gear and Processing here?
Nikkor 135mm f/2 AiS manual focus lens
Shot in a contrasty monochrome. I made a TIFF of it as-was out of the camera. Made another TIFF after first putting the RAW file into a Picture Control I have which mimics Fuji Portra. Put the colour TIFF on top of the mono in Photoshop and faded it back to about 50%. This sort of gives it that 'bleach bypass' feeling [in the old days that meant by-passing the bleach process when developing colour slide film, which left some of the monochrome silvers in the final transparency]. Finally, a 20% pass of one of Color Efex Pro's 'cross processing' filters. All in all, less than 7mins of processing.
