Mobbed in Hollywood

We drove to Hollywood Blvd. for another round of stranger portraits. As we passed along Hollywood Walk of Fame, a dancing mob in Kodak Theater's main entrance was being recorded. We all wondered what the show was all about...
Outside the mall, by the grand stairs where I used to get my photo targets, a big animated screen was set up. People thought it was a cool background for their photo souvenirs. I thought it was a... Continue reading...

After color adjustments, the scene came together with sort of a vintage summer feel to it. The pale blue tone atop the photo blends well with her pinkish skin (particularly the bottommost photo). The background and her hair colors are in her eyes that are clear and beautiful. It's kinda deceiving. It's like we had a day on the beach when in fact, this was taken at 7:17pm. I so love the effect that I'm jealous again...(LOL).

In my other posts, I mentioned the eyes are primarily what my focus are. Here, as you can see, she had her eye glasses on. This being a street shot (as opposed to stylized portraiture), I didn't feel comfortable telling her to take them off. I was the one asking for a favor so whatever this young stranger was wearing, I shouldn't change that. Besides, the shot should be realistic; that is, whatever was there on the street, take it.
Mollie, by the way, was the first to wish me, "Good luck with your project!" as she biked away with her friend. I thought that was really sweet!

We had her stand against the street with the sunlight coming from her left side, a technique I did here. Two more sets of three and that was it. I had to let her go no matter what, even if she was too nice to stay, as it was unusually long for a stranger shot.
To my surprise during post-processing, the light turned out to be a very good player! In fact, I chose her image to be my first black and white portrait on Flickr...
