Award Shortlist   


By cattyal  
Since I extravagantly put the heating on today I added a fan heater to the studio and decided to take a few pics again.

Some carefully arranged net, grunge layer, barndoors on a single light for a change as I wanted a bit more light control, and this is what I ended up with.

Thanks everyone.

The lack of castanets are duly noted Roy - I shall have to find some Smile

It's nice to use some different lighting for a change - I just got into the habit of bunging a brolly on and was getting lazy. If I put the heating on tomorrow I might try something else......

I keep coming back to this - I just love it
Maybe it is the mystery that runs through it (helped by the closed eyes).

I might even be forced to give it an award

Thanks again everyone and apologies especially to Roy for the late return - thank you for your Award Smile I hope it didn't cause you too much pain to hand it out Wink

I did some more today, a couple of which I do like, but they won't be uploaded as they'd have to go under the Adult tag. Too many people view my portfolio that I'd sooner not see it Smile

Really elegant and styleish, right down to your shadow. The lace, earings & eyebrows are great details and with the lighting on you its brilliant. I hope there are more in this series this is a great style to focus on - I'm a fan.

Thank you again everyone Smile I certainly plan to try something similar again sometime though it may have to wait until the weekend. The evenings are just too short to fit everything in!
