Shelby by viages2242

I'm partial to the tight framing ...

The quickest fix for the slightly red hue in her skin is to drop the red channel a little and then give the curves a tweak to compensate, the stuff that should be red such as lips, shoes and the piping on the bra will stay vibrant but the overall red in the image will be removed .. because its high key you may have to stick a multiply layer over the top first to stop the highlights burning out when you apply the curves ... I personally always shoot images like this a stop under so i have less fiddling about to do when i remove any colour cast ... oh if you try this dont forget to mask off the hair first ...
Uploaded a quickie to demonstrate ...

Flying umm !!!

Flying umm !!! by D80daz

Its a priceless expression ... the colour is high impact to ... I'm not sure what it is about the shot that is not quite right though ... I'll ignore my own predudice about the alt cliche of wings, thats not the issue, its technically sound if a little flat ... I dont know how many strobes you used but for instance if you used two, meter for them both and then turn one down a notch or alternatively move one of them around your model further to the side to a more oblique angle and move your other strobe further back ... ideally the best way to avoid flat images when working in a fairly small space is to only use one strobe and a reflector ...
I think hidden in this image you have potentially a great editorial shot given either a different location or wardrobe ...

I have never been a fan of backlit images but this works ... i like its soft quality ... If the image wasnt on the wonk it would be outstanding

My Friend Jen

My Friend Jen by abra-cadaver

Fantastic composition ... normally putting your subject in the centre of the image would result in loss of narrative however the lines of the bridge lead away from Jen and infront you have a vista of the river framed by the bridge .... a possable path ahead and the path already travelled .. the eyes to the camera generally would be a no no in an editorial image such as this but in this case they ask a question ... its a moment on a jorney, a point where a decision should be made, and a search for guidence ... the fact the scene is set on a bridge re-enforces the simbolism ... the whole image is loaded with metaphor and simbolism wether intentional or not ...

This image was taken during the magic hour so you had what I would consider perfect light ... the way the image is currently orientated almost into the sunset/rise gives the image that glow ... but the side effects are the red cast on jens face and a loss of detail in the bridge girders, and a burnt out sky ... had you reversed the orientation of the shot (so you were on the other side of the bridge looking the other way) the whole scene would be lit with a warm glow, the cast on jens face would be gone, the girders would be lit revealing the detail and the sky would be a rich blue ... its a matter of preference but this image could have looked entirely different with only minor changes ...

I still like its dreamy quality none the less

Thanks for the comments Cathal ... Heh, the Morrigan rug shot is an old favorite of mine ... i'll probably bung it up here at some point ...

Love the variation in your work ... you turn your hand to pretty much everything with the same vim ... cool


Added Date: 29/05/2007 - 1:19 AM

I love the disconnected feel to your work ... the unease created when you peer into peoples lives.
Its a theme i have been attemting to weave into my own work without much success, faking it is not possable it seems .... only raw reality counts ... and your ability to capture it fills me with envy and respect ... you're a master
