Hey, Steemit/3Speak! This is my first video posted on 3Speak. The video platforms have all been remarkably innovative over the last couple years. Like most on Steemit, I advanced the platform after the @dlive controversy. @dtube has been doing great things and is still my default decentralized video platform, but @exyle has been posting his VLOG’s on 3Speak so I was intrigued enough to log in and try my first video on the platform. The upload is at 30%, so I thought I’d write a few words about the video.
This is a brief look at my editing process. A few months ago, I shot with a beautiful Minneapolis based model named Bailee. She found me through Instagram, surprised to be in the same city, and we booked a day for our shoot together. This is the quintessential dark pinup shoot I’m known for. Diegetic lighting. That means only the light that is available in the room. In this case, candles and warm lamps. It creates a moody effect, but also raised issues, most of which have to be addressed in Photoshop.
This video shares some of my secrets for adjusting or “fixing” the complex lighting arrangements, including how to punch the subject from a dark background, bringing the viewer’s eye to where you want their attention. Also, some techniques in patching skin irregularities. Something that does happen with such an usual lighting style. I just investing in audio recording equipment for these videos. I’d love some feedback on how it all sounds. Thanks for watching! Follow me @kommienezuspadt for more!
