is it me or does the one on the left look kind of B&W on the face area? I really like the dual image though, just seems odd in that area of the first in the set.

Its just exposed a little bit more, thats all. That happens when you have a model moving closer and away from the light :-p

I think it might just have more light on it


Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.

ahh, maybe a little saturation in that area might fix that?

it just seems like an oddly confined area for the excess light. but I would think maybe a little saturation or even color overlay (very mild) would fix that and increase the value of the image.

Great from the waist up but the hands scare me a bit.

Pterodactyl hands can be reduced by using a longer focal length to compress and reduce the exaggeration caused by the shorter FL and shooting angle.


Now with added bokeh. (Good lenses are irrelevant, apparently. Just add bokeh and textures in post. It's the in thing.)

What was your pp on this? It does have that monochromatic "feel" to it.

I really like that first image posing and background but that hot light on the face is just hurting the image too much too me. The light on her midsection is really nice. That light was just too close and at too high of an angle to give that shot the light I think it should have had. then again that is my opinion.

The second image is much better, better balance in general and the point/focus of the image is nice and clear. She has some great skin... I take it she's probably Indian? Always been a fan of indian skin, that nice creamy brown is just great in photos!


Thanks, I think my display was a bit dark as I had to boost my exposure with the lightroom brush on her face, however, thanks! will take notice of this.

The second image, she is from Costa Rica. I took this image a week later with only one light as well.

Shot with the 5D2, 70-200 and a 430ex on a small softbox on the left. Softbox by Chimera :) love that little thing :D
