I’ve been messing around with long-ish exposures and also black-n-white for portrait and candid shots. In fact, I’ve been shooting JPG with the image processing set for black-n-white output with a simulated red filter. This produces milky white skin. Blemishes and wrinkles hardly show up, and with a little over exposure, people look almost like they’re glowing.
This look is probably an acquired taste, but for the moment, I like it
