I'll wait for a rainy day...I'm glad i saw her portfolio for the first time. Some great stuff!
Any tips about the style of light and edition she uses on her portraits?

I can't wait for this challenge - she was my first inspiration on this site and someone I tried to learn from and emulate from the start

I know the challenge description has a link to her profile, but I figured it wouldnt hurt to have it in this thread either.

Pedro,

If you'd like I'll switch places with you. I'll take a photo in Brasil, and you take one in Louisiana.

:D

Very interesting: is 21_F.gif heida permitted to participate in a challenge dedicated to her own photography style and risk not to be among the winners?

if only it were Expert editing.

What the heck? When do I get MY challenge :P Just kidding! Should be a fun challenge and I am going to try and enter if I have the time, great that it´s advanced editing.

this is awesome and much more inspiring that alot of recent challenges (or maybe iv just been slack?). i think Heida's work is amazing, the thought of a noob like me imitating it is almost laughable, still im sure ill learn things as always and have lots of fun :)

Didn't something like that happen in the Ansel Adams challenge? Someone uploaded one of his photos and didn't win?

Awesome. I was growing tired of trying to be original and getting nowhere with it.

The secret twist SC haven't told us about yet is that only heida is allowed to vote ;-) i.e. she'll pick the winners.

Actually heida hasn't entered a challenge for over 2 years and only posted to one forum in that time, so I guess she's left us :-(

No point in this one for me.

Here is the link to the DPC thread where Heida kindly gave a step-by-step explanation of her processing style....you will need to scroll down to see it. Unfortunately she seems to have removed her images but her explanation will give you some ideas.
09/02/2009 09:07:57 AM · #20
*peeks in* hmm...this ones got me thinking.....
09/02/2009 09:19:47 AM · #21
of course I just did a photo shoot like this. ekkk
09/02/2009 09:20:26 AM · #22
I suppose someone that she will remember can send her an email to notify her that there's a challenge in her honor

I think that would be brilliant.

Judi, thanks for that link. Very generous of you! Not that it will make any sense to those of us with minimal post-processing knowledge and Paint Shop Pro software.

09/02/2009 10:56:12 AM · #25
From the thread Judi linked, here's a set of processing steps Heida used on a particular image, which is no longer linked. Nevertheless the steps are interesting. This will save a little digging:

Originally posted by heida:

First I did some burning on the background then I clicked levels adjustment layer and clicked options there and clicked the top box (enchance monochromatic contrast)

then I used selective color adjustment layer which is btw my favorite adjustment layer :) I decided to put more blue color in the grey areas so in neutrals I took yellow to -7 and in blacks I put black to +2 to make the black blacker

and in reds for the skin tone I put magenta to -6 and black to -1

then I used brightness/contrast adjustment layer and put the brightness to -1 and contrast to +10

And then I did a little extra I used gradient map adjustment layer and put it to b/w and set its opacity at 41% and mode to soft light

then I did sharpen.


Of particular interest is the "options" box in the levels adjustment, something many of us may not be aware of... Learn something new every day :-)
