Martyn and Mason again, waxing philosophical
Unusually for me, SOOC.

Clock watching for someone who will never arrive.  The outfits are great.  Lovely lighting.  They look quite menacing against that dark backdrop.  Lovely exposure.  The white is great.  

You are a very talented photographer.  You are displaying some inspiring work.

Loving your recent images, great mood and that one is very impressive for SOOC.

I must admit it did remind me of Peaky Blinders - an interesting image.

Yep.  Definitely a spot of Peaky Blinders in there.

I was about to mention Peaky Blinders, but I've been beaten to it. Again!

A super shot, Jacqui - very impressive for a shot that SOOC.

What equipment are you using for these?

This one was a RAW file taken in a studio against a backdrop.
Nikon D850, 85mm f1.4, f8, 1/125
I can't give details of the lighting because I didn't set it.
In LR I lowered saturation and upped the clarity a fraction.

To clarify - because the majority of my portrait work has added elements (textures, other images etc.) to 'tell a story', I class anything that I take with minimal straightforward processing as SOOC. For instance "Pas de Deux" and "Fallen Angel" both have textures added so I would class them as creative.

Does this help?

For instance, this one is not SOOC because it hs added texture and lots of faffing.

Very nice images.  The lighting and the poses are particularly good.  Studio lighting is beyond my ken, to paraphrase a well known Radio programme and so I am always impressed when it looks as natural as these.  So often contrast is over done and shadow detail is lost.

Thanks, John. When I belonged to the real world of working for a living, I owned a small litho printing company, so colour and light have always been very important to me.
