Trisha Bradshaw - 80s Portrait Variations #2

This final picture from our 2/19 shoot with model Trisha Bradshaw and makeup artist Sarah Lynn goes for Hollywood glamor, '80s style.  This monochrome was created in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2, using a new preset I made just for portraits.  Trisha's right arm, which you'll see in the shots below, didn't read quite right in this version, so I took it out with Photoshop.  The blue/sepia split tone was applied in Lightroom 3.

This is the base picture, color corrected in LightRoom 3, spotted, leveled and lens corrected in Photoshop CS5, noise reduction in Nik Dfine, treated with Nik Sharpener Pro and brightened in Nik Vivenza.

It would not be the '80s without a nod to Sarah Moon and Sheila Metzner with a Fresson image made with a custom preset in Nik Color Efex Pro.

And of course, the who can forget medium format, warm toned prints by Bruce Webber?  Nik Silver Efex Pro at work again, using the Ilford Pan-F 50, green filter and coffee toner settings.

And finally, the look of 6cm x 4.5cm Kodachrome 64 Professional and a B+W black net filter printed on Cibachrome.

I'd like to thank one more time Sarah Lynn, Trisha Bradshaw and Susan Page for lending me their talents for a few hours last Saturday.
