No processing of the photo of the model, herself, (besides the modest acuity of Topaz in Photoshop). The edges of the gold reflective material have been blended with the rest of the room, that's all.

Here's an example of an out of the camera jpg with no processing.

The "zebra" stripe in the top edge is the rug below the table the gold layer is resting on.

Yes, she's beautiful, but the ladder is not high enough to get her in the picture easily without getting so high on the ladder that it's no longer so safe. I take overlapping pictures. The dark shadow is inherent for that location without additional lighting or reflectors and something I can live with in this session with natural light.

So most the shots in this series in this series require both stitching and addressing the shadows or exploiting them for dramatic effect.

The next in this series will be set up directly on the ground which will give that extra needed height and even allow the use of the 50mm Leica Summilux M lens instead ....... And studio lights!

I understand. But this is quite wondrous ex camera.

Best regards,

Doug,

That's what Jasmine wrote! Interesting that we find faults that the public do not see. A bride's veil with blown out pattern does not matter when she's wiping away a tear of joy!
