    I like the softness, and the color, Lina. It has an old flavor. If I hadn’t read your narrative, I might have thought this was an image from an earlier time, perhaps from Italy in the early 20th C. Portraits are tricky, when they are given to the subject. I guess the question, really, is will your friend like it? I have given friends pics in the past that I thought were great, but they didn’t. People like to be flattered; they want pictures that make them look good. I think this is a great portrait, Lina, and I can see how much work you have done, but will your friend see it that way too?

  • I so much appreciate your comment. I had all that in mind while working. I think I made it look this way because whenever she sang/performed a jazz review/show she always always choose tunes from the 1900s and 20’s and early 30’s and her dress yesterday was reminicent of that era.. She loves that time in life and I do hope it is true I have given this a feel of some age…1890’s 1920’s. I did not detract or streach or fake anything that is not her. Airbrush and tone were the tools… I do not like to do that (too much fake stuff) kind of work unless I suppose I was being paid to do it. So for friends.. i like to flatter them .. yet my strength is in not so much being a good photographer..like you.. and I must tell you .. you are amazing.. moreover I like to create the post production with more of a flavor for theme art.. knowing my subject and enhancing their desire.. hence the art side to this piece.. It is all her and when I finally got to the right tone which happened near the end of all theh other stuff….. omg.. I got goose bumps.. and knew it was her. I do not dare think to much of pleasing them.. but pay attention to what feels good to me….. I feel them as I work and see their smile and actually hear their voice!! freaky.. me.. don’t be scared!!
    Really really appreciate your comments.. I love this place.. when you want to hear some truths your possee comes out and gots your back.. xoxo you are so very precious to me david!

    i agree with Blamo about the old fashioned look with a modern airbrush element. the composition makes you look at her face and then her dress. beautiful treatment, very soft.

  • Ohhh you are here… I want to send you email and with one of the pages for you to view…. Thank you for the way your eyes fall in this piece. I really worked hard on this..as this was taken in an ugly bathroom!! Are you going to be around.. can you bubble mail me? xoxo
