Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Light on White III (Advanced Editing V)
Camera: Nikon D70
Lens: Nikon AF-S Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 VR
Location: BK Studios
Date: Nov 26, 2006
Aperture: F8
ISO: 200
Shutter: 125
Galleries: Fashion, Portraiture
Date Uploaded: Nov 26, 2006

I am currently immersed in a portrait lighting class at the local college. Our studies include all types of studio setups. We have learned that the shot is secondary to the setup. Make up, props, the position of the lights the differences of light intensity on various sections of the frame, so much is required before you push the shutter button. I am learning a ton but I have so much to learn.

This shot is my attempt to shoot a studio portrait.

Thanks to my model, as well as my wife for helping with the makeup.

I love this shot. Not much done in PS. Cloned out a few blemishes, sharpened, cropped

Hope this does well

I really like this. Perhaps a tad more color on the model's right cheek, seperating it a bit more from her clothing. I just love this shot. Very, very good.

I don't know why but her expression irritates me, a litter crack of a smile would really help

Beautifull image that shows care in maintaining the light on white Challenge. Even the makeup was muted yet enhances the model's eyes. Good choice of lipstick and the applied facial effects.
