Doesn't he know he's supposed to shave first?! I hope he got a good trade for wearing your clothes and putting on your lip stuff.

This was taken in our living room, at night.

In front of him (that's my hubby - bless his heart) is a set of 2 500-watt halogen work-lights on a stand. They're to *my* left.

He's in front of a piece of white seamless paper that is tacked to the wall.

HORRIBLE colour cast. The softness came from what little editing I got to do in Basic. Levels to change the yellow background to white. A bit of noise reduction and gaussion blur.

Crop, resize, and enter - knew it would be blown away. But it was fun.

I liked this, Kashi - gave it a 6! I like the soft focus - adds a feminine feel.

To me it seems as though there is an almost crazy look in the model's eyes which, while making me look longer at the photo, also makes it slightly disturbing to me! Also the top left of your photo seems to have a creamy shade to it where I personally would have liked to have seen a plain white background.

I don't mean to hurt any feeling here but I swear he looks like he does this all the time.

good idea but I find the brightness a bit distracting as it draws the eye to the light rather than the model.

poor lighting, no seperation on the left of him and no light in his eyes.

Not 'Cross' enough.

ha ha ha Soft focus - funny. I'd rather he be putting on real lipstick, not the lip balm stuff (I know my makeup products LOL) I'd have him with a wig, or barette, or something maybe to emphasize the "women's clothes" a bit more.

The idea is nice, but the hbright light takes away all the details. And I'm not sure what your model is holding, but it seems to me it's not a lipstick and this is not the way to hold one either.

I like the feel of the photo created by the lighting.

Just seeing a guy try to put on lipstick cracks me up enough.
