I spent a day shooting with Yumi and withback in December, taking shots of a few of the lingerie sets by Maison Close that Shinyong has on sale through her PrixPrix online shop.
Great fun, as you can imagine. What could possibly be dull about shooting pictures of beautiful women dressed in beautiful lingerie?
By the way, just in case you are struggling with the answer to the rhetorical question, the answer is 'nothing'. :-)
The Gear and Processing?
Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 Ai
Monochrome started off in-camera and tweaked a little bit for contrast and highlight recovery in Silver Efex Pro. Ultra-fine film grain added in Silver Efex too. Very subtle tone added as well, with a combination of Silver Efex and the 'Image>Adjustments>Variations' tool in Photoshop. Just seemed to suit this image for it to be a tad warmer.
This is ambient light only. I shot the RAW file to get a histogram that is gently over-exposed [to illuminate the shadows] and then bring back the highlights with a combination of the 'Pull -1' filter in SE Pro and the Graduated ND filter in Color Efex Pro... rotated to 90degrees so that the ND is pulling back the curtain and leaving the right-hand side of the shot alone.
