SILVER SCREEN GODDESS

By chrisevans
Another aprehensive colleague from my office stepping in front of my camera. Silver Screen Goddess is my theme this time, a modern take on the famous 40's and 50's studio shots of Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Rita Hayworth and Marilyn Monroe. Of course as a back street amateur I don't expect to come close to these iconic images of the Hollywood greats but it's a brief I gave to myself and this is the best I could come up with on the day (evening). A huge thank you to my colleague Carla who also gave it her best shot at the end of a busy day in the office. Hope you like.

Well, all I can say is that I certainly wouldn't look like that after a hard day at the office!! Grin

She's a very beautiful lady who has done you proud with this shot. Your own photography skills have also done you proud with this one and I think describing yourself as a 'back street amateur' does you no favours (even if it is a tongue-in-cheek comment!). I've seen your portraits before - you're very good and I like your style.

In an ideal world I, personally, would like to see just a touch more light in the eyes, but that's an incredibly picky point. This portrait is stunning exactly as it is Smile

I only uploaded the shot very late last night and already I'm blown away with you positive, helpful and encouring comments. It really plays a big part in dragging the camera out after a hard day at the office.

Yes indeed, I'm blessed with a company full of interesting, apprehensive but thankfully willing participants Smile

Tanya, you observations are 100% spot on, I should have used a small reflector to bounce up a catch light into Carla's amazing eyes.

Cheers EVERYONE.
