Margrette is was referred by another model I shot for FHM (Lena) a couple of months ago. She quickly jumped on the next available shoot schedule. Again, just working with good old natural light and a pair of reflectors since it was a bit over cast during this shoot.
Now that the Nik Collection is now free from Google, we can tinker around with various “film like” effects without having to experiment so much with just native Photoshop. Funny how social media posts and images nowadays strive to look analog in the age of digital photography. In my humble opinion, film would always have that softness and gradation of colors no ordinary digital camera could achieve. Of course if you’re armed with a Phase One or Hasselblad, then that’s a totally different story.
Though the light spreads in an overcast weather, the downside to that is color temperature. It not as flattering on the skin tones. So I had to bump the color grading to the warmer tones to compensate.
