Another self portrait with only window light. I like the pink background myself.

Nice to see a lovley phtograper-model
Nice lighting Sara, glad you got catchlights in both eyes, how you getting on with PhotoShop? clk
Very nice, and nice lighting.
Not sure if the pink goes with the 'moody' expression.......maybe a bit girlie soft.
Have a look at the modification - you may not like it...but then again - you might
nice lighting and capture!
Nice soft light but the point of focus appears to be your shoulder. At least, that's the sharpest part. For portraits it has to be the eyes that are pin sharp and yours look a little soft. Not much but enough.
Agree that for the style of shot here a darker and less obtrusive background would work better.
Hope that helps.
Like it "as is"..do more
Me too - original much preferred but I agree that the eyes could be a bit sharper... much better than I can do even so
You are soooo beautiful !

Thank you for all your encouragement again. I like Kaybee MOD and would like to know how you did it? I got a fill in flash yesterday so maybe something new soon. But PS I am still struggling with and slowly working through the guide. Ive done a MOD on 'mum inlaw' and will try and post that.
Sara....what I did was copy the picture onto another layer which I then added gaussian blur to (blur it so that you can see the outlines - how much blur alters how strong the effect is). After that I added a small amout of diffuse glow ('distort' filter). I then used the eraser to remove most of the effect from the eyes/mouth. I think I also used the 'dodge' tool set to 10% and midtone to lighten the whites of the eyes slightly.
It sounds more complex and longwinded than it is - it certainly took me less time to do than to type
ive had a go at a MOD. Very brave!!!
you r a beautiful lady...
Nice pic's, but i'd like to see pic's of you taken by someone else, i'm sure it would bring out more of that hidden charm.(Not sure if i'm supposed to say that.I'm new you see.)
