Meet: Mr. DePino....AND his ProActions!!

First off, I just want to say thank you SOOOOOOOO much to all of you who have commented, emailed or called in the past few days about my last post. It really makes it so much easier to blog something like that knowing that I have friends like you who always have my back!!! Ack! I so want to put something here about how you guys make me the richest girl in the world, but I am at a total loss for finding the right words right now. Seriously, everything I type is a TOTAL cheese fest..... so just know that I love you and you guys mean the WORLD to me!! xoxoxo

Now....whew (fanning myself furiously!!!)...on to some picture fun! A little while back our good friend, the one & only Mr. Steve DePino, asked us if we could shoot some new headshots for some super exciting things that he has coming up. Not the least of which, is the recent release of his brand spankin' new Pro Actions. Seriously I LOVE these things! Each and every one is more yummy than the next. In honor of their release we did the post work on all these pictures using his ROCKIN' new actions. . Sooooo... I'm gonna give you a little behind the scenes action with the "lab experiments" we did on each shot, and after that if you haven't grabbed up a set of these actions yet then you better GET TO IT!!


This was the very first frame Justin shot of the day and I LOVE it! We used a lil' Awesome Curves + Mr. Perfect 30% to make it really pop.


This was probably our favorite shot from the whole day. DePino BW v 2.0 at 45%. Justin also added noise at 14%

So sophisticated. Awesome Curves + Acid Washed 30%+ X Processed Washed Out 20%

I love the light streaming in here!!! AHHHH!!! Lab-a-touille 50%+ BW Dream+Pop

Don't try this at home! Depino BW v 2.0 + F Stop 1.2 sim (but DO try this at home!!!)

Blue Steel+Soft Glow Lo+Vignette

How YOU doin??? Lab-a-touille 47% + Acid Washed 74% 

Exp film 1981 Green 50% + X Processed Washed Out 14% +Vignette 70%

Expired film 1981 Red 40% + The Fuzz + Vignette

I'd do him.

Rnormfoto said...

OH. MY. GOD. I have never seen Mr D looking so snazzy! These are really amazing, and i'm thinking about adding text to one of those since it looks like a movie poster! After I have my face-lift and discount Venezuelan Botox, you can photograph me in saucy poses too----

E. Broderick Photography said...

Wow! Awesome shots, guys! That second to last one is my favorite, but I love some of the funny ones, too. "How YOU doin'?" Looks like Steve is a natural in front of and behind the camera.

Shyla said...

Thats one hot man right there.

DePino, keep the scruff and Marantzes, dont ever give up photography.

Rnormfoto said...

STEVE DePINO said...

Bruce Plotkin said...

BRIAN KHANG said...

Wow these are great guys. I think I need to workout with Mr. Depino and grow some dirt.

Marcin said...

Absolutely phenomenal. Great job guys!

Robert J. Trenske said...

Great session - love the composition of the second shot at the next to last one. Great idea incorporating his actions as well.

talia@sixpence said...
