MLK Jr. Holiday photography session with fashion model Crystal and E37 Photography

It was a wonderful day to photograph outside on the beautiful Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday in Tucker, Georgia outside Atlanta. E37 Photography traveled to meet Noel who is the father of Crystal a lovely model. There were other photographers on location at Arthlene Laudat Legair Designer. All the fashion designs were lovely. Some casual and others were more formal. Crystal had plenty of company with make up artists and hair people. Since the weather was so nice outside, we photographed her in the front of the store.The rest of the time we photographed in the store.
Fashion photography is so colorful it takes your breathe away each time. Crystal looked different with changes in fashion, make-up and hair styles. It was a very relaxing atmosphere. Each photographer took turns taking photographs. Her dad said that some of the images will be in publication. Who knows you might see E37 Photography in the media again.

Photographer captured this pose for the romantic lovers in world

Here is the black background version of Crystal in red dress

The next image was photographed the same day at the fashion store but was more complex to work. The model was posed in this long flowing gray dress but the detail conflicted with the extra clothes on the racks. The foreground and the background were too busy. The photographer decided to Photoshop out all the busy details of the clothes in the background. Since her dress was gray in color combinations. The photographer thought of grey clouds. He saved a jpeg image from Internet and added it to the background. The photographer used several selection methods in Photoshop which took time but it was worthwhile in the end. This imagine became the most popular of all images on Facebook compared to the other model look she  posed. Crystal's family liked it and the image was shared several times on Facebook. E37 Photography shared this image on Facebook along with other Internet social media places. The photographer believed it was possible. The hard work of combining the model posed in grey dress and unique grey clouds matched in perfect harmony. See this image below. The hard work did pay off with this project.

Hello Folks, Ralph Williams the photographer is back again with another sample of model Crystal at Arthlene Laudat Legair Design. She was wearing a lovely pink dress sitting on a sofa in front of clothes in the store. The focus was on her wearing the clothes not the background of clothes hanging up on the rack along with pictures,etc. Yes, pink clouds exist so they were used in the background to match her dress. Who would imagine that she would be posed in two separate cloud images~pink and gray.

Before and After results

Crystal was photographed in a retail fashion store with black and white background change from color. The photographer did this to distort the busy background of colors.The color foreground of the model is now the central focus of the image.
