Challenge: Free Study 2007-07 (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D
Lens: Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM
Location: Paris in my studio
Date: Jul 28, 2007
Galleries: Portraiture, Studio
Date Uploaded: Jul 29, 2007

This is Fabi from Brazil. Very successful model all accross the world and particurarly in Asia. She is only 20 years old and already did multiple magazine covers, prestigious lingerie campains in so many different countries. It goes without saying that it was a pleasure to shoot her... I only had to kill very few pics of her in the end.
Make up by my dear friend Cyline.
I like the result pretty much as it looks quite different from what I've done before in terms of lighting. Not sure it'll be accepted by the voters... but no matter what, I like it.
Special thanks to Mademoiselle Agency of Paris for letting me work with Fabi.

Well now, this one did great! Great lighting as usual, I like her pose, it's different.

And I can't go without mentioning the 4th place ;) We all know how much you love them! I am glad to see a portrait place this well in the free study though....

you are a lucky, lucky man to have been able to work with such a model :) The lighting in the eyes is particularly haunting. A truly great portrait to add to an already amazing portfolio of images - congrats on the high finish.

Looks almost surreal with that lighting...very cool portrait!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/06/2007 04:58:26 AM
Well, I think you will place very, very high. If not Blue, then certainly one of the other top spots. Great work!

I can't figure out what she's doing. A female boxer in a tanktop? With full makeup on? There is no sense of either character or story, nothing for me to latch on to.
08/05/2007 01:25:35 AM
Toyan's work? Very beautiful model, the skin tone is so amazing. You bring out the best in her. Great work! I hope this will do really really great.

Very hot. Just a very minor nitpick would be to dull the sheen on the nose and shoulder a little.

I love this one.
The shadows, the emotion, highlights, dodging and burning, it really tells a story.
Great picture!!!

Beautiful model and pose, great lighting. The hair is amazing too. Something I dont like about the bandages (did you brun-dodge them too much?).
a big 9 from me
