Thanks for your detailed feedback. Much appreciated! Thanks for taking the time to look at them in LR. I should have elaborated in my initial posting that I set out to copy a certain dark fashion portrait look that I’d seen done in a Creative Live tutorial. It was a dark haired model in a sleeveless black top against a black background. The actual background they used was gray but they used grids to keep the light from hitting it. I tried to do it without grids by moving away from the background but didn’t get far enough out. Also, didn’t expect the sheet to show up so didn’t bother ironing it! I’ll have to download the raw files to my laptop and try your suggestions. Again thanks for the detailed response.
