Theda

%23SC 7476 Theda
Another way of looking at color. This is Theda in a nice upscale hotel room in New York City about three years ago. This was my first shoot, first meeting, with Theda and she really impressed me. She is a very talented model and is great to work with. I’ve since been back to NYC to work with her and hope to do more in the future. I keep trying to talk her into an outdoor shoot…who knows, maybe she’ll give in and go become one with nature for me one of these days. So far the closest I’ve come is the shot of her on a fire escape outside a Manhattan photo studio. I posted that shot on here last month.

The light for this shot is from the bedside lamp in the hotel room. I was using auto color balance on my D100 and Nikon always seems to go pretty warm in this kind of light. I’ve corrected the color in photoshop, but didn’t like the result. The color here seems to be more “correct” in how it feels…maybe even how it looked at the time. So that’s the way I’ve left it, because it feels right. I thought of this photo after yesterday’s post with the bright red light from the Wave at sunset. I decided quite a few years ago, after decades working in black and white, that I was really interested in color. So I’ve been shooting color for a long time now. And, as in these two and many other photos, what is happening with the color is very important to me, and to the photos.
