I agree with Taggart...this is much, much more than just a snapshot. Get rid of the light patch on her nose and this would be perfect.
Thankyou 4 the share...Click Smile

Beautiful portrait Diana, stark yet haunting, so very much more than a snapshot.

It really is a snapshot, thats what was required, its a special day for her today so I am just marking the time really

Quote:Get rid of the light patch on her nose and this would be perfect.

so subtle Csuk! its not a bright spot she has a broken nose, its character !

I shot this in my daytime studio lol, the hot walls in Old Portsmouth

the light is just amazing here.....(I shoot at night here a lot too, moonbathing)

those triangular catch lights are very engaging... one of those images where you don't want to be shooting on a 39mb digital MF, some portraits it's about transitional states, about tones flowing, like this Smile

What a lovely portrait Diana.

you have such an astute eye Nick

its taken under the arches here by the beach, the sun is to the left/behind me and I am in the middle of her eyes creating that triangle of light

cute hey?

the arches really do create a fab studio, I often go here and have even set up a complete studio with a lighting kit underneath them

great apres wedding shoot location too Wink

This is one of the best portraits I have ever seen, snapshot for you maybe, decisive moment to me, If this portrait was in sepia i would thought Nadar, Love the contrast oozing from the beautiful eyes the expression is unique and better than Sarah Bernhardt in my opinion.
Well done

Wonderfully simple. Remind me of a famous Walken Evans portrait of a farming lady during the FSA years.Same staightforward efficient approach.

thanks too Francois but dya know, I thought of Richard Avedon when I saw this on the screen, similar to Walker Evans, yes (well in context anyway)

I love it too, its one of my fave own photos for its plan simplicity

I'm going to shoot more like this now, thanks for the inspiration on this

much appreciated
