Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Fashion (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon EOS-300D Rebel
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II
Location: studion in Reykjavik, Iceland
Date: Feb 21, 2006
Aperture: F 10
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/125 sec
Galleries: Fashion, Portraiture
Date Uploaded: Feb 21, 2006

Being a makeup artist and a fashion crazy person, I thouhgt this challenge was right up my alley. If it had been a member challenge I would have gone really wild but this has to do for now. ;)

Shot in a studio with two Bowens lights (I do not know the type). My friend, Arndís, is the model, I did the makeup and styling and was the assistant and of course the photographer.

The only post-processing I did was converting from RAW, cropping, resizing, USM (once for contrast and once for sharpening) and save from web.

---------------------------------------

Thank you everyone for getting me my second red ribbon. This photo is one of my all time favourites and I am soooo happy to see it win a ribbon.

I must thank my model Arndís and Larus for helping me in a small crisis.

Another amazing shot from one of my favourite photographers. This is superb! I only gave it a 7 at the time probably because of voting fatigue, but I wish I gave it a 10. You are an amazing girl.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A lighter back ground would really make this image POP. Very nice lighting. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2006 06:34:36 PM
Very nice lighting, pose and the hair gives dynamics. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2006 05:45:23 PM
Very nice lighting in this one. A very good looking model and hot clothing. Perhaps some extra space on the left would make the shot feel less tight? Anyway one of the best in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/26/2006 11:22:33 PM
Fantastic photo - great lighting to keep the texture in the fabric and also the skin tones on the model.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/26/2006 07:25:58 PM
I like this a lot, but I may have been tempted to hide her thumb. It seems a bit distracting to me. 8

Now this looks like fashion photography. Great job. But I think I'd soften her face just a notch. (8)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/24/2006 11:57:30 AM
Pretty model, the fashion looks 'real', and the style is right for showing off the clothes. Good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2006 07:24:35 PM
Wow.. standes out for being over all a great photo 10 from me :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2006 06:54:22 PM
This has been one of the truest "fashion" shots. A little advanced editing would help, to remove some of the excess hair, but was not allowed. Otherwise, it is ready for retail promotion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2006 03:09:17 PM
True glamour! My only 10 so far. Nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2006 11:20:20 AM
One of the top best, no contest.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2006 09:42:10 AM
BAckground color too close to model wear in my opinion. Not enough contrast between the 2. Otherwise, excellent!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2006 09:01:10 AM
Nice Picture, her hair makes a nice contrast

  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 11:12:02 PM
Like the blonde hair with the black, especially the wisp under her arm on the lower right. Don't like the thumb for some reason.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 10:43:15 PM
Nicely done. Extra point for the title.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 10:36:47 PM
I think I remember this young lady from another well prepared image in another challenge some time ago. Very attractive...hard to forget. ;^) I like the approach you've taken with the fasion piece - very trendy, nice pose by the model, great attention to the details (lighting, exposure, focus, etc...). Some nitpicking to do on the hair showing under her left hand. This leads to the fuzzies (?) on her visible gloved hand. Minor, I know.

This shot would be a fine image for publication. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 09:00:24 PM
Very cool, nice job.

Great Photo. If this doesn't ribbon I'm going to eat that hat. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 04:03:44 PM
awesome pose, minus the finger.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 03:39:19 PM
Nice lighting and pose. I also like the grey background with the black sweater and hat. Nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 12:08:16 PM
She blends very well into the background. A lighter or brighter color for the background and this would be a great image instead of a 'good' image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 11:36:31 AM
My absolute favorite so far. Great work 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 11:10:49 AM
Uh huh, yep that's a winner. Lovely lighting and of course, beautiful subject. Makes me want to run out and buy a big furry hat, and I'm far from needing one. :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 10:30:45 AM
The hat sets this photo off along with this attractive woman, very nice meeting challenge and pic
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 09:25:55 AM
This to me is my top scoring photo, and I will play a little bit of Tyra Banks here and say why. The lighting is very good. The make up is done well. Not over or under done. The hair is pleasing. The hat and outfit look wonderful on this model. The facial expression is spot on. The only distraction I see is the thumb. It stands out a bit too much and I would have had her hold that down. Without that, this could go on any make up cover and outshine some of today's top models. Very nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 08:41:33 AM
Excellent. The only true fashion looking image I've seen so far. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 07:35:58 AM
faulous! only complaint is her funky thumb..everything else perfecto
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/22/2006 02:17:22 AM
Nasti..I think you have a hands-down blue here. Don't tell Gary but I would be surprised if he ends up higher than yours.
