Can't a girl get any privacy????

This was a challenge and a half to take, I have what must be the smallest bathroom in the world and had to get a light and a tripod in there!

I tried using the 'median' filter to smooth the skin rather than the gaussian blur, not sure which one I prefer yet......

great concept for a photograph and done very well considering your limited space

wonderful lighting and tones and looks like median can be just as good as gaussian for skin smoothing.

beautiful model too =)

Love the sense of fun in this shot... well done!!! My only minor gripe would be that you can see the anti-slip mat in the bath... which I think detracts from the overall effect. However it shouldn't take too much to remove!!! Smile

This is annoying me!


(in a good way!)

Love the pose, composition and all that - it's reminding me of something and I can't think what! I'm sure it will come to me - was it a movie poster?

lovely retro cheesecake feel to it - and you're welcome to use my shower room any time you like! Wink

Oh Chris, my kids are so used to it now they tell people things like that without realising that not everybody's mother dresses up in silly costumes and wigs and photographs themselves.
Once, after I had done a 'session' I was sitting watching TV with my 10 yr old and she kept looking at my flattened hair and then said "Mum, have you been wearing your wigs again?" in such a disapproving tone.
