Thank you. No mystery, I desaturate and then vary the contrast. some people say the work is not contrasted enough, but it looks very different on my computer to what it does on the laptop and I never really know which one is correct.
I personally think high contrast looks good with the proper landscape, but the contrast you use with your work looks fantastic for models. Do you just use camera raw or something similar for your work?
It sure does....the biggest advantage I think, is being able to change the white balance after the fact. It does seem to take more work, but at least you can correct the photo to how you saw it and not just let the camera decide for you. What camera/lens combo do you normally use for your work?
