Publicity Shot "Forum"
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This was a publicity shot for the musical comedy, "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum," that I also produced and directed in the Fall of 2009.|
The actors were shot against a chromakey backdrop. A full studio lighting (monolights) set-up was used with a softbox, 2 umbrella and a hair light.
As with most publicity shots of this type, the lighting is intentionally flatter (usually 1:1 or 1:2) than a standard portrait with the final use aimed at Web and print media.
The background was added from Royalty free images showing Roman architecture.
RAW / PS processing just to remove any blemishes, plus sharpening, basic balancing of color, contrast, and tone. ISO was 200 (sorry the EXIF data did not upload).

I see you have the same problem as I with the green halos or color in the hair from the backgrounds. I have yet figured out how to eliminate it. I do like the pose of the models in the image.
Hi Larry...I like your image..nice expressions and light..perfect focus. I would suggest not going so light on the eyes..no more than .3 stops (in my experience)...I like your shot though.
