First of all, let me tell you - I absolutely hate selective coloring. I really really hate it. I hate it more than I hate ingrowing toenails. I hate it more than cockroaches in my $100 dinner served by a rude stuck up waiter with a fork up his ass. Selective coloring is the worst possible Photoshop crime you could ever commit. Whenever I see it somewhere I just want to take a leap off a bridge. I'd rather eat dirt and rust from underneath my car with yellow snow on the side, than have to watch stupid selective colored pictures. I think you get the picture. So...do I hate myself? Well...selective coloring was executed to perfection in Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List. Other than that, I've only seen it being put to good use just a few times through out my life. I debated for a long time whether I should have used it here or not, and even though this doesn't even come close to being creative or something new I still think it works really well. What's your opinion?
The girl in the photo is my awesome girlfriend, shot last night in my studio. The strobist setup is quite straight forward: Elinchrom BX 500 Ri at 1/16 in a 23 inch soft box at upper left hand side. It doesn't have to get more complicated than that.
