Shorts & a Teeshirt

By chase
Another of the beautiful Alex,taken on Sunday.

I asked her to choose something she wanted to wear so....this was her choice.
I used a nice big fan to try & get some movement in her hair.
Softbox above to her right,white reflector to her left.
Bg replaced in Photoshop.
I did go one stage further with the bg which I will load as a variant...not totally happy with it but work in progress I think.

Thankyou for taking the time to look/comment.
Janet xx

I like the pose and the expression and most of the processing apart from the face, which to me lacks a bit of texture. Did you use any skin softening in the processing? If so I just think it would look that little bit better taken back a bit as she has a lovely natural feel to her, which would suit less smoothing. The background however, works really well.

Thanks guys.
Colin,I think she had relaxed a little more by the time I got to this set.

Sarah...the only thing I did to her beatiful skin was to remove a couple of very small blemishes,no softening though.

I do see a slight bright halo around the top of her left shoulder on here though,not visible in PS,or indeed in the Tiff version...which is the one I will use to print from.

Dare I say it, erm better not, otherwise you may not let me join you later in the year, remember, so I'll be good and say what a super lady you are.


I'm sure she and her parents will be well pleased with the results Janet, very nicely done these.

Superb Janet, Alex and her parents must be over the moon with these. I can't really decide which I prefer but am edging towards V2.

Lovely portrait with V2 working best for me - the hint of window and curtains works so well. A beautiful young lady

The jury seems split on the bg stuff,so I'm still undecided Wink

Thanks everyone for your votes & comments,all very much appreciated.

This is a beautiful portrait the light and backdrop colour go hand in hand. Excellent. WesternRed. Believe me V1 is correctly exposed.
