Clients reading this are probably going, what in the heck is SOOC? Well that means, Straight Out Of Camera. Which sometimes for a photographer, is a scary thing to broadcast to the world. However, if you are getting your exposures right in camera, then it shouldn’t be so scary. Less Photoshop is definitely more. Here is mine:
This was taken at a client’s home, with a pop up black backdrop…window light behind me and to camera right. For you pros: F/2, 1/200, ISO 2000 (bless you Canon 5D, Mark II!) Best camera ever in my opinion, for low light. Virtually no noise.
Here is the finished image. Typically I process these black background images as black & white. This was converted in Lightroom using Nichole Van’s presets.
