lighting and skin treatment


I think you got a very good studio-portrait and also the post tratment was very good also.

Hair is in good detail, eyes are beautifully evidents in the picture, skin is smooth and without perceptible imperfections, and light is very well positioned to enhamce the moment.

Framing is well chosen with her eyes in a catching interest point, maybe the jewels could be better seen with 5mm more of her chest that ou could cut over the head.

Also the diagonal described by position of her head is very interesting. And your model is very beautiful.

Very nice. Is this a new shot or from the old series?

You have a photographic memory! This is indeed from a series I shot over a year ago. At the time I only processed a couple of images. I'm in the process of going back through and working on some more of those images.

I too remember commenting on a similar picture a while ago. As before, the head, eyes, accessories are perfect.... but.... the previous shot was a tighter crop and here the shoulder/upper arm seems to intrude in a slightly unnatural way and takes up too much of the picture area to be ignored. A subjective viewpoint, I know, but having noticed it I can't keep my eyes off the shoulder!
