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.

AHHH well I can't speak for John of course but digital cameras do have a black and white mode or monotone mode But I think If your serious about Black and white try a film camera and black and white film thats how I got started and why I love Black and white shots myself

awesome lesson of photography, I like the usage of visual centers conducted by composition and tones, you are manipulating very nice the viewer eyes, but not to forget the beautiful and elegant moment and smile, a very well done photo.

Thank you my friend, you are always so generous with your comments. Possibly it is because you are an excellent photographer and feel secure in what you do. Thank you for passing by again. John
