Congratulations to Matt Anderson for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 14 votes - View Previous Winners


Convergence of my professional-fashion post processing career and my passion for landscape photography. For this project I worked with the very beautiful and talented "MeTa". We planned this concept a year in advance. MeTa made this amazing dress and head piece. We waited for the fall colors of Devils Lake State Park, WI to peak. Finally the day came, and everything came together. Our wonderful makeup was done by a spectacular artist - Emily Stoffels . This was so much fun incorporating the beauty of a woman with the beauty of the natural world, for a harmonious, and I hope, an inviting artistic expression. Thank your for taking the time to look...

Shot with a single light 400 watt/second light (dialed down 2+ stops to maintain a natural light exposure) using a photogenic ion, pocket wizards III, D800E at 50mm f/1.4 and 200m f/2.8, processed in LR and Photoshop CC.
Photos will be published in Linger Magazine, Elements Magazine, and Elegant Magazine ( print and digital )

Interesting concept and nice color

#1 - I like the uncropped version -- her face and crown of leaves need to be a little brighter to pull her out of the background more.

#2 - I like the cropped version

#3 - The uncropped is awesome!

#4 - both versions are great but I really like the uncropped

#5 - I like the uncropped.

Overall, #4 uncropped is the best followed by #3 uncropped as a close second.

Great job by you, the model and the MUA.

Matt, this is breathtaking! Nice job planning, great execution on everyone involved. Just love how the yellow played so well, never thought I'd like so much yellow in a shot. But this is just killer! Great job!

You have it all going on here; great concept, lighting, color, makeup and model. It must have been tough to get those leaves to stick on to to the model during the entire shoot.

Matt,
This is your first non-landscape work I've seen... and it's damn good. Thanks for sharing.

Like the crop of the 1st image the best, but the whole series is very good. Great job by the stylist, MUA, model and photographer. Wonderful lighting and post work on the images. Congrats

Outstanding work Matt! I would crop differently #4, #5, #5 crop, but it's just me.
Really warm and inviting colors!

Impressive work, and a great collaboration! The orange tones are a touch overwhelming, but it's very nice artwork, kudos to all.

Excellent work !

Lighting is great, poses are excellent, composition is superlative !

Your make-up artist did a fantastic job IMHO.

Really like the dress. Not a big fan of the headpiece. I think it works well in the portraits, but not so well in the full body shots, but I'm sure it achieves the goals you had for the shoot.

Really excellent location for the shoot. Your passion for landscape photography really shows.

Thanks for posting the excellent work, and giving the information on your lighting set-up.
