Inga and Omar

Inga is a very out-going young lady who loves to smile in contrast to her boyfriend, Omar.  She lights-up in front of a camera.  She wanted a few shots of the two of them.  I had to work quite hard to get Omar to get this close to Inga.  His idea of a portrait of a couple was each person about three feet from each other looking directly into the camera with no smile.
Camera settings:  Nikon D3x, 85mm f/1.4, ISO 100, f/8 at 1/90th of a second on a tripod with two Elinchrom strobes with umbrellas on each side.
Post Processing:  
Lightroom 4—set white and black point and increased contrast, increased clarity, contrast and sharpness in his eyes with adjustment brush and did some basic dodging and burning.

  1. Compared to the previous photo, I think Omar has a giant smile on his face. Both of them have great eyes.
