This image is an attempt to control the look and feel of a studio shot to a point that you can’t control the highlights, shadows, sharpness and focus when taking an images. This image is a composite of two images of the same subject. One has a -3 stop exposure of the subject shot with a small softbox directly over head. The other image is shot with a small softbox at 90 degrees to the left of camera and a correct exposure is used. Once the images were taken into photoshop they were stacked on separate layers, with the underexposed image on top with heavy diffusion added. Then with an adjustment mask added to the top layer it was painted out to reveal the image below. By control the brush opacity and size you control the amount of the upper layer you leave.
