Self Portrait 2

By alessandra1990
this is another of the same set I tried, i made it little grainy look, here the flash is less disturbing in my oppinion, I don't know about the pose, I hope it not boring.
thankyou as always for any advice

The grain works well, I feel.

I like the sheen on your back and the shadows cast (nice dimples by the way).

The flash (to me) is not distracing in the least and actually adds to the shot because of the texture of the background it is falling on.
The glasses add a touch of glamour' to it all somehow ..... maybe it is the 'celebrity' thing of pretending to hide behind the sun glasses whilst wanting everyone to look at them.

As for the pose - boring?. Not at all. It goes with the lighting very well.

What I might be tempted to do is remove the light triangle above your head (I find that tends to pull he attention a tad)

A very good image, never boring, my one very small point as its a pet hate is there is a faint bra line across your back. An easy fix in PS. Me just being over picky, sorry.

I think Kaybee sums it up nicely, as for the bra strap comment above; just remove underwear about one hour before your shoot and you will not have any more marks showing on your images.

I think self portraits are one of the most difficult shots to do. Lots of girls do fantastic sp's. You are very beautiful so dont give up. I learnt a lot about lighting by shooting myself, but i didn't publish the pics with my face LOL
thankyou so much everybody for your kind and very useful comments and suggestions Smile
