I've been messing about with my lights this afternoon and after that experimenting with combinations of the high pass filter, lucisart whyeth and various blend options - not remotely flattering to my face but I do like what it does to my shirt.

I'm amazed - I've not opened the voddy yet and I'm bunging up yet another shot or two, or three of me without a bag on my head!

Like all of these, and you should do more. Very nice natural poses, and the lighting is fine. Just make sure use the light to emphasise what you want emphasized. In this case, it seems it was the shirt Smile

A really good set of photos. I up-loaded two of the same mod by mistake. I think you can guess, I converted to mono.

Thanks everyone - sorry I'm late Smile

Thanks for the mod Alan - I rarely convert to mono and am continually telling myself that I should - and then I don't Smile

Thank you too for the mod David - the smoothing is much needed - wish it was that straight forward in real life Smile However I'm learning to care less and less - after all no point in worrying about stuff I can't fix - or afford to fix!

Indeed Michael - it was the textures that were amusing me today - I've had those shirts hanging in the wardrobe for months and have never worn them - I really should as they're nice!

I'm not surprised Keith - actually V4 scares me witless Smile

I like V4 a lot in this. Teasing yet a little gritty. Light is good in all of them and its a good experiment. Good set!

I can't wait to get you in the studio girl.

I like the turned heads in 1-3 but feel the eyes turned to the camera would strengthen them,
No4 - I think it is the straight on face with the dark shadow that lets it down because the pose is very relaxed.
No5 - I love .......... that sexy waist gets me every time

V5 wins it for me.

Thanks again everyone and thank you Roy for your mods - it's always interesting to see what pics people prefer - and what they do with them Smile

I'm sure I'll be trying again one day - maybe when I have the heating on!

One of the shots I didn't upload makes my waist look really diddy - shame the face looks a bit iffy......

Thanks Gary - I was actually pleasantly surprised how these came out - mostly pleased with the shirt as I bought it months ago and had never worn it Smile
