Jimi Hendrix, proving that stripes and paisley match JUST FINE THANK YOU. My edit of a post I found here, but I have no idea of the original artist. Please let me know if you know, and I’ll add credits!

Michael Jackson, Los Angeles 1971, by Gene Trindl, my edit, original via.

(The challenge of this edit underscores why it’s mostly the b&w shots from this shoot that have been widely published. The color balance for the red background pushed Michael’s skin green, and the exposure balance for his backlit hair lightened his skin too much, but adding too much light to his hair also showed that the red background had spilled onto it, making it look like a wig! So I went into Photoshop and tried to rebalance it all by zone. It’s not perfect, but I guarantee that it’s by far the best thing out there right now. Coming soon, more of the black and white shots, which actually came out beautifully from the start.)
