The music students from the Sunday Afternoon Project all have their own way of combatting nerves.

The white blob on the side of her face is in fact an earhole extender. You put a bigger size in at intervals to make the hole huge. And I have been told it does hurt.
Oh! I do feel old and slightly squemish.

Squeamish myself.
Lovely skin tones, though.

excellent moment of concentration well caught.
looks painful, too. I think the only think that I did deliberately at that age which hurt a lot was filing, filing and filing till my hand were raw. But that is what you do if you want to prove you're better than the boys Smile

Love this. I like her "look" very much but it's a pity the ear thing couldn't be a different colour than white. It all looks a bit medical - purple would've been cool. Smile

I am not being funny but i think you have got a little too close here. The picture has no context. Had you stepped back or included more in the frame you would have shown possibly something of what is actually going on. Something seems to wrong where the hair meets the background.

Nicely taken. As you know, I did the lighting for this, the off camera flash, to the left, was not far enough away from the camera and at the wrong angle to lighten the shadow thrown by the direct flash.

Another very nervous young lady here, its a good image but I tend to agree with Maddie in as much as it would have been nice if you could have included a bit more to tell the story so to speak, but I am nitpicking.
