So "Mephisto" is no longer my most heavily edited shot. This is. One flash bounced on the left side of the frame. The background is some sort of bed sheet. The original is a lot darker in reality but I wanted to try and get the studio effect so MASK LAYER-LEVELS is alll i did. play aroud with the "intensity" and then used the black/white paint brush to create a gradient effect with regards to the light. I did use some cloning/healing to get rid of distracting folds in the sheets and a scratch or two on the model.

I'm really proud of this shot because i have the feeling that I have taken my editing skills to a new level! Hope you all like it. THis model might be appearing more often in my submissions because from what I understood, she's up for posing more often. I already have some great ideas in my head so hopefully it will pan out at some point ;)

Not next door to me. ;-) Nice portrait. She looks very bold and self-confident.

This is a nice shot. Good composition. The lighting could be stronger on the right side. Maybe another light or a reflector. Or even turn her around, since the light is coming from the left.
