This is from an old shoot as I want to get crit on this. On the last upload from this shot, I had a fair bit of praise, but some very reasoned criticism as well and I was wondering if I uploaded the wrong image. There are a lot from this shoot, so I am trying to be selective. I hope this image answers some of the criticism. Happy to take any crit on this. Thanks

Normally, I would agree and did actually try getting a bit darker, but lost a lot of the detail and she didn't like the look when I showed her. So, this bright it was....client is always right...or so I am told...lol! Wink Cheers though! Thanks for the comment! Appreciated!

But agree with the hands...also, was stuck with 4 other togs, 3 models, 1 hour or less to shoot! lol! Not easy to set everything perfectly....

But thanks! Much appreciated with the comments and crit though!

I'm a great fan of hard lighting and this is as close as it can get with flash. If you ever get the chance try this using an Arri Fresnel Light (this would reduce shadows penumbra and increase contrast even more). Nice contrast and saturation. Good pose from model. Strong Portrait. Well Executed

No criticism needed and if I'd shot this I'd be a happy bunny although in my case she'd be without the hoodie. Snoots can be a piggie to get right but for me you've focussed and positioned it just right. Hard light is a challenge but when you get it right as here it's a delight.

Hi Astyag

Well, thats weird! Seeing one of my images on YouTube!!! lol!

Well, its the weekend, so had a look at the link and its interesting stuff. So thank you for that. Now, I am not entirely sure I like the final effect....if you don't mind me saying, it makes her look a little "alien-like" and its not for me. BUT....it HAS given me a new skill which I will try on other images for different things to touch up in future images, so for that its very, very useful. Thanks for that. Really appreciate it! Definitely very interesting and thanks so much for taking the time to attempt this and let me know.

And no, I know I shouldn't be opening up EPZ in work hours, but I just can't help myself! lol! Smile

Good, to be honest, even I thought it will make her look "alien-like" because couple of other stuffs had to be done, like the enlargement of Iris. It works best on portraits from front. not one sided. At least I am happy that you didn't know about this before. Then it would have made it too boring to you. Just for the record, I learned it from Lynda.com videos. If you are into the portraits, this package that I downloaded is mainly for portrait modifying.

Hi John and thanks for vote. I like this image and agree with most of the comments above including your own. I agree the lack of separation with deep shadow on camera is an issue for some. For me it spoils the image, but that could be how EPZ renders images. Nevertheless your high contrast is attention grabbing.

Great use of the lighting here Johnny, nice eye contact and the model's shadow adds to the overall feel of the picture. Well done.

I have to say not sure what there is to criticise on it, i think the pose is strong, love the light love the colour, and definitely think that less is more, let the viewers mind make up what it wants about the image. It's one to be proud of.

I love this one: the spot on the wall, the dark blues, the model's well-lit for me. Good work!
