After months of trying I think I’ve finally cracked the Rembrandt/’Painterly’/Fine Art look.
Amazing model Lauren was lit with a PIXAPRO LED200D MKII at 45 degrees above and looking down, casting that Rembrandt triangle on her right cheek.
The backdrop was lit with a gridded PIXAPRO LED100D MKII+ and the clock with a Rotolight Neo.
The camera was a Sony A7RII with a Sony FE 85 F1.8 lens.
Basic adjustments were made in Lightroom. In Photoshop, the skin was retouched using frequency separation. Colours were adjusted using Selective Colour.
The ‘Painterly’ look was enhanced with a combination of Noise and High Pass Filters. A canvas texture was added over the image at a low opacity, and brushed partially off the face and dress.
The image was colour graded with a LUT.
