Portrait of a Skateboarder
Awesome portrait of a skateboarder I was photographing at Scion Skate Park in Lewisville, Texas on Monday, July 8, 2013.
This portrait was made using a Canon 5D Mark II (because I, like an idiot, dropped & damaged my 5D MkIII, currently out for repair), two Canon 580 EX II strobes at full-power, fired remotely with PocketWizards. No light modifiers were used.
The RAW image was processed first in Lightroom, where clarity, whites, and individual saturation colors were modified. The image was then processed in Photoshop CS6 using Nik Software, specifically Viveza and Color Efex Pro. Finally, the image was sharpened, then exported as a .tiff file back into Lightroom, then exported again as a .jpeg for the web.
