The Venetian Mask

By chase
I have had this beautiful, authentic Venetian mask for some time now but never photographed it on a person Sad
Paige wasn't keen at first but,a drop of persuasion & we were away!
Just one softbox this time,slightly left of the camera.
Paige has stunning eyes,I think this shows them off nicely.
There is a teeny bit of movement on a couple of the jingle bells,which I don't was due to her uncontrollable giggling Wink
Thanks for taking the time to drop by.
Modifications( go on,have a go)/ constructive criticism are always welcome.

I think this is pretty much perfect as it is, Janet!

The photograph is as subtle and delicate as the mask and the model.

A beautiful photograph - she has gorgeous eyes and they just shine out from the mask!

What a very beautiful mask not forgetting your lovely model!
Would softening the crease in her neck look wrong?
Hopefully we'll see this mask again maybe in a still life.

How can you have had a mask that gorgeous and not have used it on anyone yet?! Sacriledge! Smile
She does have the most stunning eyes and I love how the eyeshadow echoes the tones in the mask, too. All in all, a superb portrait and I don't think I'd change a thing.
