LGM workshop pictures with Ewa

Yep, we shot AL. But most of the time the reflectors were used instead of the diffuser. Sunlight was coming through the roof window.

What printer is that?

Fuji of course :slight_smile: because it allows me to print directly from my camera.


Here’s one of mines. What I used for this was:

Darktable: Filmic for almost everything - equalizer - fill light - shadows&highlights with a tiny mask on her eyes.

GIMP: some frequency separation minor fixs, and a bit of highlight/shadow manually added with a simple overlay mask at a really low opacity.


Here is one of my shots. Developed in darktable using filmic and the new lut 3D module with Ilford Delta 100.

I’ve used a small amount of dodge and burn to reduce some highlights in the face. I have a preset for this in my magic box. If you burn or dodge is controlled by the EV slider after you’ve drawn the masks using the brush.

And one in color …

For ISO8000 I think the quality is quite good.

Thanks Stefan for the great workshop!


indirect sun lighting from gold reflector.


Lets keep the flood… color one here.

@beachbum Stefan… you srsly opened my eyes. Thank you so much!


Has anyone shown this thread to Ewa?

I thought this was a p*** workshop (because I visited Stefan’s website)

I’ve wrote her a mail and sent her the link.

I edited this because I thought that the mood was woderful and it was too bad that it was not perfect

Sometimes the best thing you can do is just enjoy the photo that someone posted. Learn from it and think about what would you have done differently without directly expressing that in a picture yourself.

Scratch the best, then I agree :wink:

@betazoid Removing that balk from her head really improved the result!

I really like how diverse the images are. Some intimate and dreamy, some more confronting.

This shows two things: we all have a different view through the lens - no two of us are taking the same photo because no two of us have the same view on the model. And it also shows that Ewa is a very talented model and able to respond to different photographers on very short notice.

Let me add a personal “thanxalot” to you all - I m happy and thankful for all participation and positive responses. Keep’em coming.


another one… sorry about the noise :slight_smile:


@Tatica Very nice. Allow me to abstract it.

Edit: v2

you didn’t get the hint above. this is a showcase thread. while I understand the impulse, you don’t have to edit other people’s stuff all the time.
