|Oh, man, the setup. I've never done a real setup before, and I certainly don't have the equipment. Backdrop was some brown sheets we taped to the archway behind us (may have destroyed the paint job...), lighting was a couple of 75W bulbs-on-cords as well as a 550W 6" Theatrical Fresnel coming at us from the front (hence the bright highlight on the couch). The sheets came apart at the seams in the center, so I had to blow out the contrast to hide it, so that's why you can't see her hair. Messy moving around caused the white sliver on the ground (I was the male model, my girlfriend the female--I shot this on a timer) to show up. All in all, I'm amazed it came out as well as it did--wayy better than my last entry, Self Defense, in which I had to make do without my huge light. Still don't have a flash unit.
Post: Desat, Curves, curves again, USM, save for web. I wish this was advanced editing something awful.
Sorry if I've said too much. And I love 16:9.
