Challenge: Fashion (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Nikon Coolpix 950
Location: my room
Date: Feb 17, 2006
Galleries: Fashion, Nude
Date Uploaded: Feb 17, 2006

Used two lights for this shot...one on the right, and one on the left bouncing off a white piece of foamcore.

I converted to B&W using the channel mixer and then just played around with a couple of different layers of curves until I got something I liked, then I ran it through neat image twice on low settings....

As a portrait I like it very much, but for the theme, the lighting loses the "fashion" part. We see the person very nicely, but the eye has to work to see the rest. Does that make sense?

nice capture, and good lighting work. Slightly over-exposed.

Absolutely the best photograph in the challenge. The lighting, the clothes, the tone, the pose, the model, all would get you an 8 from me but the look from the model makes it a 10.

Like the perspective and fade into the shadows.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the idea, but i think it would have been a much better picture if you dident get the pillow in focus or/and get it darker.

Perfect focus, nice pose. The wrinkles in the sheet are distracting. 8.

I like the single glint in the right eye. Interesting perspective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is more a "people picture" than a fashion photo. Well done though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I almost would like to see her head cropped off and just show her wonderful body. Don't care for her expression or the little hot spot in her eye and head right on backdrop, eyes have a dark shadow, etc.

Very professional looking fashion shot.
