Starring model Trisha Bradshaw, with make-up by Sarah Lynn, this picture's processing is inspired by the haunting, innovative photography of the 1932 film, "The Blue Light", directed by the amazing Leni Riefenstahl. There were quite a few steps involved for this picture, which used Lightroom 3, Photoshop CS5, Nik Vivenza, Nik Sharpener, Nik Dfine, Nik Color Efex Pro and finally Nik Silver Efex Pro.
This color picture is the step before the monochrome conversion. I find that a modified version of the Nik Color Efex Pro "Glamor Glow" effectively emulates look of film before anti-halation backing was invented.
