This is a beautiful shot the expression on the models face is very confident yet sensual - May I ask do you use any post editing in your photography? I ask this because in the camera data it states the software you used was Adobe Photoshop - I thought I would ask as I am trying to learn some post editing myself.

Well, this is really off camera, desaturated and reframed using photoshop 7 .. but indeed I do sometimes do some editing, though mostly very elementary things.

Thanks for the reply - and one last question - what lighting do you use? do you just use natural lighting or is there a lighting system you use?

This is 7.00 PM natural light, but I often used a bounce flash, mostly for indoor work.

I was taught to get the shot right the first time if you have to spend too much time editing then you failed. The only exeption is when your doing a composite like in a fantasy portraits. Otherwise I would say focus on your craft and not the tech. That leads to lazy shooting. But its still not a bad idea to learn it afterall its a tool and as long as you treat it as such It can be a wonderful thing. All depends on what you wanna do with the image.

I definitely agree with you - I generally do not personally enjoy over edited shots - but I do sometimes get curious over how some people achieve, for example, what seems to be unnatural colour and colour contrasts - that somehow seem to work - without the use of a lens filter. Or even editing minor mistakes like a small unintentional glare in an odd spot of the frame which although does not necessarily ruin the shot itself but does affect the general quality.

To be honest though I am too lazy to edit anyway... I much prefer knowing or at the least feeling that I got the shot I wanted to achieve...:)

In this case, however, I believe my original question was directed to the monochrome effect of the shot - I wanted to find out if the effect was achieved from an originally colour frame which was post processed in photoshop to be a more, lets say, artistic monochrome - or - whether it was originally shot as a monochrome picture itself. The main reason being is that I never really tried monochrome shots - original or post-processed - and just wanted to find out how people go about it as I want to try monochrome photography in the near future.

As I said though I must agree with you a shot that is right the first time is definitely much more enjoyable and satisfying, atleast on the photographers part.
