Trisha Bradshaw - 70s Portrait Variations #3

This third installment of '70s style portraits with model Trisha Bradshaw and make-up by Sarah Lynn begins with a natural color shot.  The processing started in Lightroom 3 for color adjustment based on the X-Rite Color Checker Passport, using the +1 portrait square with the eye-dropper.  Lightroom also cropped, added black and reduced clarity.  In Photoshop CS5, I adjusted levels, applied lens correction and did some clone tool type spotting.  Finally, Vivenza lowered brightness, boosted contrast and control points increased structure on the eyes and mouth.

The Fresson look was made in Nik Color Efex Pro.

Finally, the monochrome was made from the top picture in Nik Silver Efex Pro, using Agfa 100 stock, a K2 filter and coffee toner.
