I want to upgrade my simple 8BitsHi,

Nice piece of work. If you like this style Google the work of Dani Olivier - I think you will be impressed Smile

If you shoot using a textured background for your backdrop you will be able to apply an overall 2 or 3 pixel Gaussian Blur in post processing which will take out the grain and give the foreground and background equal impact. You can then use a levels adjustment to set the black point to further refine it. I am not convinced you are better off with RAW for this type of work - it would work just as easily as a jpeg - perhaps even more so.

Have fun.

Aberford Nude.Yorks

Aberford Nude.YorksHi,

I like the concept of this and I like the tones in the model a lot. I think it could be improved by flipping the model horizontally so that the light source direction and the shadows in the two images agree with each other. Also the two viewpoints for each image are not the same height - the model camera viewpoint is higher than the scenery camera viewpoint and I think it would look really good if the tops of the hipbones were lowered to be level with the horizontal buttresses just above the fence. A warm up filter and slight tonal adjustment for the background image would be beneficial. Just a couple of thoughts . . .

Not trying to be critical as I really like the image - almost has a Carlos Clarke style so it must be good - just think the subtle changes would make a good image a stunning one.

A lady ghost

A lady ghostHi,

Would probably benefit from ghost being raised and moved to left into the darker area to make the perspective look more realistic. The picture could then be recropped.

If you modify the lady layer to a green adjustment layer before making it monochrome the effect will be better and you will not notice the light sources are in different directions quite so much.

Changing it to monochrome would also mean that you would not notice the vastly different light levels.

Hope they give you something to think about and play with.
