hmmm I´m not sure I get the question but I assume you are asking How i did it?

she simply laid down on the floor and I spread her hair neatly like that on a gray paper background and lit it with two softboxes.....

This one is just too funny for comment! Good pose expression. Overall, good layout. It would be interesting to see what this looks like with a whiter background. Also, I'd be interested in seeing the effect of extending the canvas and how a portrait mode view of this affects the composition (not saying it would be better necessarily--just think it's an interesting model to ask such questions!)

What hair, she must be laying down as the room would need to be electrified to pull that mop up. Great composition and expression. Good luck on this humorous portrait. -8-

What a crack-up! Do you vacuum your hair when it needs cleaning? Fun capture!

Definitely a wonderful sense of humor. Due to extremely high level of competition not sure about a ribbon bu should end up in top five. Good luck

Very cool. Such hair! I think I'd prefer it a bit if she was looking straight towards the camera.

7 - Good idea, well done if it is original. Criticism; difficult, but in my opinion if she were either; a - her body/shoulders straight and the head then tilted or, b - the body/shoulders tilted more and the head 'brought back around' to be 'straight' (if that makes sense) may have given this an even greater impact/effect. The hair, while fairly well 'placed', just slightly 'rotated' to the right to get it more 'symmetricial' - but that would come by default with a change in head/body position. To really nit-pick, maybe the earrings/tongue ring(?) gone, for added 'neutrality', may also have given this a more simple and dramatic shot. The hair looks good, just think that in a shot like this, those minor other details would just enhance it even more - 'in my opinion'. I also want to suggest b/w or some type of toning, but I do like the skin color 'contrasting' against the black, and also the nice black sheen in the hair, which you'd likely lose with any adjustment.

Wow! That's different! Her body feels too abruptly cropped. I wonder how this would work as a portrait oriented image with more of her body included?

12/01/2005 08:24:55 AM
Very well done! I shot a pose like that too before my wife cut her hair...
