Here’s a lovely portrait made under gentle verandah light on the steps of the Victorian Parliament in Melbourne, Australia. I utilized a Canon 50mm f1.2 L series lens to portray the subject under the verandah of this classic Greco-Roman styled frontage. Adobe Lightroom 2 was employed for basic image processing and rendering into black-and-white. The local color effect, green light reflected in the window directly behind the subject, was achieved by removing saturation from all but the green slider in the HSL panel. Final contrast, skin smoothing and sharpening were applied in Adobe Photoshop CS4.
