Not uploaded for quite some time....will be interested to see how this is recieved Smile

Simple light....main window to camera right, with a large sheet over it. Large bounce soft brolly from about 10 feet back, behind camera right. Tonal adjustment in LR4 and thats about it.

good to see you again Smile What do you think about it? My feeling is the reflections in the glasses especially one on right takes away detail from the eyes. I'd also either get rid of the very slight colour cast and go for clean whites or increase it to make it more pronounced. I prefer taking it to the blue side. It actually has a feel of cross processed and with a blue tint makes it look very-fashion stylised. It's just one opinion, of course.

Hey Pete! Thanks for that and thanks for the honest critique. I TOTALLY agree about the glasses....was very annoyed when I got the images home and opened them up full size as I couldn't see that lack of detail so much on the back of the camera. Most frustrating when I did all I could to eliminate the reflections, this side of removing the lenses! Gutted!

As for the cast, this is a curious one. The walls were magnolia so warmed everything up somewhat, but I did change this in LR and cooled the images down significantly. The computer is absolutely brand spanking new with a brand new, calibrated monitor and a brand new copy of LR, so.....can't explain that one. I didn't want the images to be completely white as she already has very naturally pale skin, but I took out a lot of the warmth, so a little frustrating that others can still see this Sad

I shall endeavour to go back and check this again and see if they look warm on my laptop....if so, might have to think about getting the monitor calibrated again. Thanks for the observations Pete!
