An attempt at recreating the style of Jill Greenberg. Some people will like it, others will hate it.
I personally really like the way it's turned out.
This is the fantastic model Jelena P. who I believe will do very well in her modelling career.
Beautifully 'manipulated'. As an admirer of Jill Greenberg, I think you've managed to emulate the style very well indeed.
Fantastic shot! I like your colour treatment!
Nice manipulation and shot.
I confess to not knowing Jill Greenberg's work but having seen this shot I will now go away and look it up, I think it's fantastic!
Top draw photography, I like this Dean.
Having now looked up Jill Greenberg's work I can see what you were working towards. I think you have achieved what you set out to do very well. Great.
Thanks for the kind comments everyone. I still have some things to refine, but I feel I'm getting closer now.
I'll try to upload some more.
Wow Thats a great portrait
Congrats now on the EC, a great technique by the look of it.
Excellent portrait and a very deserve EC! Congrats from me! Cheers, Abdul
This looks so good, it's (almost) unreal!
Whao... another EC!!! And more great comments.
Thanks so much for the feedback. I've learned a lot from the constructive critiscism from everyone and the helpful posts on the forum (started by Henchard I may add).
I'm really enjoying this style of manipulation.
I think it is bloody brilliant!
Many congratulations on the Editor's Choice award, well deserved.
Awesome portrait a well deserved EC.
love it......love that halo-effect
Well done Dean this is excellent. I have tried this type of technique myself without so much joy. I would love to know your lighting set up.
What is there not to like about this. I think it is a cracking image, everything about it from the composition to the presentation. Well deserved EC Sylv.
I'm also inspired by Jill Greenberg, you've done a great job here!
Well done on the EC too!
Hey Dean, thanks for all you inspiring comments! Found your portfolio pretty amazing so feel very flattered you liked mine!
Reading through I just noticed Life's comment.
On this shot I used two beauty dishes to the side as two key lights (I know... breaking the rules again). Quite powerful and spilling to the background.
A large softbox above (about 30 degrees) and directly in front of the model used as fill light.
The two strong side lights provide most highlights. The front box provide soft highlights, which I build upon using the techniques touched upon by Amy Dresser
Hope that helps a little.
Thanks for your reply Dean it is much appreciated. I will try this when I get a chance at college.
Congrats on the EC...
Absolutley stunning image.
What manipulation have you done on it ?
Hi Topcat. No big secrets really to be honest.
Read this Smoothing the skin
And if you do a search on Jill Greenberg or Amy Dresser (here on ePhotozine) you'll find Henchards thread about the rest of the technique.
Apart from adding the radial gradient, it was all lighting really.
superb image - good lighting and very well presented
Well done on your EC and POTW.
OMG! Imagine my shock to open up Ephotozine and see my photo staring back at me from the front page!.
I'm currently shaking and a fuzzy sort of happy.
Thanks to Pete for the EC and POTW.
Thanks to everyone who liked my photo enough to give me RC.
I'm soooo happy about this.
Excellent image. Congrats on the EC, RC and POTW. CLICK.
You should be happy, its a great image. Congratulations on your awards and thanks for sharing your tips and techniques. Enjoy your awards and we look forward to seeing more.
This is an extraordinary portrait in every respect. Very well deserved EC, RC and POTW
A beautiful portrait
Very good indeed - a nice clean shot.
First let me say that most of your work is of very high quality..... but this really is exceptional.
I have been busy with work and moving house recently and have had little time for photography or commenting but had to come out of semi-retirement (comments wise) and comment on this.
The lighting, model, manipulation and overall effect are truly impressive and this image would grace any gallery.
Clever work and a good effect.
Stunning portrait! Excellent effect!
would love to know how to do this!
Congrats on the EC,POTW and RC!
Stunning image; looks like a portrait of some 80's superstar!
excellent work, maybe you could do a tutorial on this technique?
Fantastic work, a well deserved 100th click.
Yipee! My first photo with 100 clicks.
Thanks sooo much everyone including the ePz team who chose this as POTW. This has really built my confidence.
Just for info I'm about half way through writing a tutorial so hopefully I'll be able to start handing out the URL in a few weeks. It's looking quite lengthy so I'm not sure if Pete will be able to make it into a technique entry or not.
If he can't I'm willing to have it emailed! I like it that much...
The best i have seen since i joined!
Well deserved EC!!
Lovely woman and great shot, love it I bet Jelena does too! Thanks ~ Clare
Brillant, how did I miss this. Paul
