Many thanks to everyone for there comments on my last upload very much appreciated.
Here is a bit of work in progress really still not quite happy with the balance of light between the back ground and subject in this one yet.
Be interested to see what you think.
thanks for looking
I like the framing Richard.
Beautiful work and model Rich!
Very nice. Perhaps it needs to be toned down a touch but what I feel is intrusive is the heating duct pipe in the background. If this was dulled down perhaps it would not draw the eye quite so much. What do you think Richard?
The opposing angles do work very well though.
Another quality shot Richard.love the framing ,light and eyes colour in this one,
very well done,
Always tricky on a rope ladder. Like the angles in this.
Its a shame the background is not a little less in focus, as for me she is getting a little lost in it.
Just my take on this fine image though.
Its different and I love that. Unusual image, simple idea but works. Sort of agree about the background a touch, a little distracting, but the premise of the image is a complete cracker...really clever, superbly lit, nice and imaginative and well shot. Good work all round!
Great shot but I see what you mean, I can't decide if she needs to be darker or lighter and the background lighter or darker but I think I would go for a darker background with her the same or slightly darker, I bet that doesn't help at all.
If you're interested in my two penneth worth. I think the light on the subject is too direct.
From one point of view it is lit very well, in that it's clear, the wall behind is well defined, and it's easy to see that you have made an effort to light the back ground well.
However, it's flattening out the subject into a cardboard cut-out, making it too bland. It doesn't stand out from the wall behind. I think the light needs to be more "3D", less straight-on, with more definition of shape and a greater graduation of tones.
You have this wonderfull body-stocking/thermal underwear thats different. It's skin tight, and yet there's barely any sense of shape to the body. And the texture of the fabric, so different to the skin, is lost.
Personally I'd experiment with lighting on the subject that was from different angles, and forget about the background entirely, let it look after itself (it is secondary to the subject, afterall), and see what you get.
apologies, you did invite comments!
No Grampy that is helpful as it what I need to play with some more I think.
David, thanks for your thoughts on the ducting I didn.t feel it was that intrusive but will look at what I can do with it.
No problem Steve, thanks for you input.
by the way, I should have mentioned, I love the extension of the right arm and right leg, the whole length from hand to foot, with the wonderful curve of the waist and hips, is fantastic !
I love the angle of this shot Rich, and in general the whole portrait works. Just one or two points: firstly, as others have said, if the background was slightly out of focus it may be better, and there are one or two distracted shadows on the model which I find a little distracting.
Interesting angle on this frame filling composition, she did well on the ladder rungs with these wolly socks and tights. Your studio work is always just that bit different and pushing the envelope Richard, well done mate.
Brilliant! Superb tones and capture.
Like the angle Richard
Over the composition (which is very good) my attention has been focused on the colours and tonality. I think the coloursare the most valuable point in this picture. The great mix between walls colour, the floor colour + the hair and the socks colours is the real and the greate balance into this picture.
Only too happy to take this to 30
You have been given lots of sound advice already
You made me open the image from the gallery, look at it twice, tilt my head and it made me think!
In my book, you achieved the aim of making me look at your work!
Very good picture. I hope you try this photo again with the '3D' lighting that Steve said about so I can see what he is on about!
Love the comp Richard, the vertical rope ladder work really well
cracking detail wonderful colour and tones a belter nice one
love the composition i'm personally not good enough to comment other than maybe the background a little darker and she is shot less full front on maybe more from the left regardless good stuff love it
Like the quirky angle Richard! I don't feel qualified to comment either but perhaps the background a little darker? I totally agree with Dougie about your studio work, always giving us something different and "pushing the envelope"
Wonderfully well captured, like the angles of the window and the pipe against the angles of the model and the ladders.
Many thanks for all everyone comments and feedback very much appreciated.
Interesting pose - another lovely image of this very pretty girl
Clever use of straight lines here Richard .... beautifully skew-wiffy.
supeb pose , like it ... angie
I really like the angles on this one Richard, and I think the lighting works well. A very good piece of team work here.
Another fine capture, Richard, like the angled shot of this one, makes for a stronger image
some good advice above and as I am not qualified to comment I will just say much better than anything I might achieve, a vote from me
Thanks for all your comments and feedback everyone, will catch up later today with them.
I rather like this one Richard and also the light you have c aptured on her face, great angle
Excellent image. I must confess that I didn't notice the background until after I read the comments.
Really like the way you have framed this Richard.
A super shot Richard. Works well.
Richard I never really noticed the background. I suppose we could all improve everybody's shots but this one would do for me. I really don't mind the semi industrial background. I think the pose and the subject are good enough to compete with anything.
An excellent capture and a great pose..............Martin
Love the angle you have captured this at . The ducting is a lttle obtrusive though ...Phil
Thanks for all your comments everyone very much appreciated.
excellent image richard,i also like the angle in the shot.ray
Lovely model! Amazing pose, very good image! I like it.
Well, I have no clue about studio lighting and such, this is a very fine image imo, with a great model. I like the colours, the warm softness of the models clothing against those bluish cold windows at her back. Nice pose, too.
Beautiful composition Richard. She seems to be maintaining her balance, but the world seems to be losing it
Superb shot Richard. Love the idea for the pose and room angled. Creative stuff. Paul
Many thanks for all your comments and feedback everyone.
Loads of comms Richard. haven't read any.. sorry
I find the angles to this off putting. I know she is leaning in my head but she is not in the image
maybe a compromise of the model leaning enough not to make the BG horizontal, would work.
as for the light I agree with you, BG toned down which will also help hold the eye on the lovely model.
Just my thoughts Dave
Great pose.not an easy one to do. Again a great angled shot.
