Sarah: October 18, 2011

I had a test shoot session Tuesday October 18, 2011 with the lovely Sarah.  Here are some of my favourites.

Sarah with selective colour. I decided to keep her stunning green eyes in a B&W conversion.

B&W High-Key, Photoshop CS2 conversion.

The original colour version.


Shot with three Elinchrom strobes  36″ softbox on each. Two at 45° above and to the side of the camera, one directly above as a hairlight.

Why do I photograph models, the Pretty Woman? A lifetime ago I was a police forensic photo tech, I saw horrible and ugly images. Now I take images I want to see, and to be frank, I like attractive women.

About Darrell Larose

I am a highly motivated self confessed techno-geek. While rooted in traditional analog photography, I have embraced the new technologies in photography. I am just as comfortable under the dark cloth of a large-format view camera, as I am with a digital camera. I can produce award winning photographs within the darkroom, or from a digital-desktop. With 40 years of photography as a both hobby, and over 30 in the professional arena I have always produced. I am self-taught in the digital media, I have been a PhotoShop user since 1995 (version 2.5) I found the transition fairly seamless due to my long experience in labs. I have worked within various Government photo units, including the Forensic Photo Section of the RCMP, as well as various professional labs. I can easily converse with a police forensic photographer as I can with a wedding sports or commercial photographer. I have worked for several of Ottawa’s top photographers. I have worked at several pro labs. As well as many years in photo retail.
