Very nice, very 60's. You can make out most of the studio in those beautiful eyes.

I like it.

The great big softbox reflections in those beautiful big eyes look great and I love the exposure on the hair. Youve definately sorted out the hot spots.

Only a couple of comments, and nothing of real concern, (very rare pictures are gonna be 100%). I think the shadows look a little bit green? and possibly the lower catchlights (presumably from your tri-reflector?) dont quite go so well, and shes got those stragely eyelashes. (They'd look great really long and straighter, something I keep trying to get Laura to sort out for her shots Smile

I like the look of this...I'm getting some green shadow which is a colour balance problem on bleach blonde hair so easy to correct, but overall a very punchy image.
(Oh...and my make up girl says...'orrid mascara....LOL)

I noticed the green as soon as I uploaded, I think I should edit when I'm not completely knackered. I wanted to get a makeup artist for the day but they charge too much, asked at the local colleges and didnt get any response.

Thanks for all the comments and to Pete for the HC. K.

Still a good shot though and congrats on the HC, (I guess Pete doesnt see the same things we see, and 100% isnt always essential Smile

They are obviously getting better, and look forward to seeing more.

There is not 100% in everything I guess. I have found studio work challenging, fun and addictive. Claire is a new model and that proved challenging but my biggest mistake this session was to try too many lighting arrangements.

I had to pinch meself after 30s of the large version to come up for air....Smile! I take the point about the mascara - but when was the last itme you saw a real woman (or man for that matter) with perfect mascara....I like a touch of realism (just a personal pov of course). To be honest if she was looking at me like that, the last thing I'd notice would be her mascara. 8-/ Congrats on the HC.

Great shot BTW!

lol Steve,

and I thought it was all about the photographic quality, and not how good looking the model is, silly me Smile

(must make a mental note: 'Only good looking models from now on') At least that will explain my last shot Smile

...on a slightly serious note - I did mean that I like a bit of realism - not just a good looking model. I know it doesn't work in every instance, but I just happen to find realistic more appealing (and I suppose 'attractive').

Yep its green alright, which end of the 24-90 did you use K. if your doing this much work with Lighting go get a 50mm 1.8 or 1.4 lens it will make a big difference to your images. Do you need the a hand in the shot? Eyes are great but like Keith not sure about the lashes.

now is the time for you to jack in your full time job and get your studio you will make lots of money. Nice work K

Tony

Thanks very much everyone, Janet I guarantee you'll want to go back again though Wink.

Not sure what focal length Tony, I'll check. Thanks for the tips and about the studio, I came close this week to jacking in the day job but I still have to pay the bills :-(
