Confronting gaze there….lol!
your eyes look wonderful…I’m sure a real photographer would worry about the reflections of the soft boxes though…..
Those reflections are called catchlights, and no, most won’t remove them because the eyes look lifeless without a bit of light in them…
well that’s good to know. back in the ad agency I directed a photo shoot of….a blob of red paint. The photographer came to me afterwards and wanted a reshoot because he didn’t like the reflections in the blob…I can’t remember how the blob looked in the reshoot but I guess he was satisfied!come to think of it I still have a copy of the brochure somewhere
lights in a blob might be distracting, whereas lights in the eyes give life to the eyes….it’s easy to check it out, put an extra layer over the image and paint them out….see the difference!
yes and the blob ones were very clear! showed a whole bank of square boxes
Lawrence of Aropia…
actually there are some even more lawrencey sort of ones…and some real model shots. I really like a lot of them, though a couple have a bit of soft focus. Fleur is supposed to be nagging me tonight to go load the film and develop it…I shot 12 b & w frames in the yashica TLR as well.
Well if Fleur won’t I will, GET IN THERE AND DEVELOP IT!!, there could be something really special waiting for you :-)
I’m just relieved I wasn’t asked to do this….
WHY ADAM??? it was fun…
I’m scared of the camera at the best of times……even more so with rope hung around me.
I’ll remember that….I might try the ropes again (if my father will let me use them again) but I’ll do something a bit different with them
hey now, there’s a good point, why wasn’t adam asked to pose too? :)
because he was terrified…..
Very nicely done!
this is so wellk done and creative looks amazing !@LIz
