Greetings comrades -

I think I'm just about finished up with this studio portrait of Luxlee. I'm trying to hone my method and style; I feel like I'm making progress.

This was a very simple setup - just one E640 with a giant softbox camera left. We spent about an hour of shooting trying to find her best "look." I loved the hair on the right with the exposed jawline and neck. I think it's just a very pretty look.

I know some won't like the style or the fact that one eye is slightly out of focus (this was shot at 1.8). I did this with the 85L and in retrospect I should have at least tried the 70-200 at 200.

The had the most difficulty trying to select an aspect ratio. I ended up with 4x5.

Very nice, the only minor nit that I have is the grey area only the left of the image. I assume that is her shoulder.

As to the way it was edited - it's nothing particularly special. A few RGB curves adjustments (some masked) to get the right color, along with a light texture overlay. Most of the time was spent retouching - probably two hours on that.

Lighting = great.
retouching = great.
Im undecided about the canvas look. It definitely works, perhaps not my flavor? IDK im nit picking man this is legit work. Love it.

Thanks. It's not hard but for some reason it's not easy either. Sort of like riding a bike I guess.

Awesome! The retouching is BY FAR the hardest part. It took me a long time and a lot of frustration to figure out that a lack of good retouching was what made my shots pale in comparison to some of my favorite photographers, even though I had the same lights, lens, camera, etc. Retouching makes or breaks it.

Of course, I'm preaching to the choir.
