"DEB DOING THE OVER THE SHOULDER LOOK!!"
This is the last of our portraits for a while, I have learnt alot, and realising that I am prone to over processing was the biggest lesson learnt.....As they say LESS IS MORE!!
Many thanks for all your comments on this series and from Monday we are back to some animal, insect and other shots...
As always comments ,critique, hints and tips are most welcome...
A Beautiful effect and pose Ian lovely light and tone.
Oh this is probably the best imho! Perfect!
Nice feel to this and good pose
I love the minimalist processing in this
Nice shot Ian. There's a couple of things I think could improve the shot, though this is just my opinion so feel free to ignore/delete/swear at me etc..
1: The over the shoulder pose is good because it adds a little dynamic to the shot, but here it looks like her shoulder is up and obstructing her chin. I think this shot would benefit from dropping the shoulder and tilting the head up just fractionally. This would also open the eyes up.
2: I'd like to see the original, pre-processing. High key shots like this really benefit from a comparative state because you've clearly worked very hard on the processing to achieve the bleached look.
Nicely composed though - much prefer portraits that are offset. It also looks like you caught her in this move, rather than posing her, which is good IMHO.
morning all, and thankyou for yor comments...
Lovely image, like the pose,
this is a nice end
Great advice from Danny. I think this is the best of the lot
Best of the series imho
Great work, bet she's thrilled with this one.
Great pose & I love the treatment you've given it.
I'm not normally a big fan of high key, but what I like here is the way the lines of Deb's face and shoulder almost melt away and what's left are her beautiful eyes and hair. Works for me.
For a first portrait session this must be one of the best ever, and this image is no exception.
Interesting comment about the raised shoulder. In a way I agree; however, the position as-is suggests a vulnerability that is rather touching. It's a subtle distinction that you might wish to explore in future.
This has been a wonderful series - thank you both.
This is rearly nice, agree re the chin and shoulder! but this is a minor detail which i know you'll sort out for the next session, excellent set.
Like this ALOT Ian. A class piece of work this. A really great pose and expression. I look forward to seeing more of your work when I get back from Turkey.
All the best to you both,
Lovely shot once again Ian
What a great pose and treatment Ian.
many many thanks to all for your comments on this and all the others in this series
I think this is my fav, absolutely perfect, love it when portraits look like this...
Well you wont get a critique off me, ive never seen one you have posted that i didnt like, constant variety, spice of life
thankyou and thankyou Andree..you make me blush...
great portrait, stunning work you've done.
Saving the best 'til last Ian?
This is a cracker and my favourite from this series. Nice one.
Love the high key look, and I would kill to have eyes that beautiful
glad you told us what the initials meant lol.. brilliant shot
Beautiful; one of the best in the series.
Having missed so many i will do a job lot on you. They are all very good but i like this one the best .I think this portrays Deb as i see her but i do love them all.
many thanks to one and all.
No that my friend is stunning and I'm going back through this series. Great work
Agree about the shoulder being a tad high but a really nice job you've done here
A fine finale to this series Ian, this is work of the highest calibre
Hello Ian, thanks for the compliment on my "eye" pic! I totally agree with you that the framing is a TOOOOO much! I guess we learn by our mistakes! Love, Mandi
