Three Monkeys in Top Hats
Canon 7D, 32mm, f/8, 1.3s, ISO 1000
Model: Guillaume Levillain
The session which I finished by shooting series of 3 monkeys with the models (see Three Monkeys in the Thirties) was really one of the best photo shoots I ever did, both in terms of having fun shooting and in terms of the results that came out of it. This photo of Guillaume was tricky because the three shots superimposed each other quite a bit. It forced me to do some very careful work in Photoshop, but I got there in the end. The photo was processed in Snapseed.
Three Monkeys from the Thirties
Canon 7D, 32mm, f/8, 0.8s, ISO 1000
I’m currently working on a project on surrealist Paris (possibly more on that later) for which I recruited a bunch of really cool period-dressed models. At the end of the session, I decided to try to do with them something that I’ve been meaning to do with my kids for a long time: a three monkeys shot. As you may imagine this is a combination of careful photo work and careful photoshop work (although the latter turned out to be surprisingly easy). The picture was then processed in B&W in Lightroom using XeL 2.0.
