Light setup
- Flash (from back) at 45 left and up to separate her face from the background. You still can see the flare at top&left corner of the photo. The place where we took de photo was too small for a good position for the lights :(

- Flash to iluminate the background curtins.

Thanks to my beautiful Su & Thank you for the nice comments and support.
Happy New-Y'08

negatives for the sake of critique-
its so bright and obviously lit-
it looks cropped, especially with that cam and lens,
regardless,
its a good photo, im just trying to find negatives in a red ribbon
my favorite fact though is that its not overly sharpened- the pitfall of dpchallenge in general
congrats in any case!

Torturing that fish again, I see;)

Another wonderful image. Once again, you've managed to reign in so many interesting elements and make them work in harmony. Your images are going to look great in a book someday!

What a lovely shot! The coloring is supberb as is the focus and subject. It really makes a shot when the model has something "unique" about them in some way. The fact that you had all of these elements makes it a wonderful piece. Congratulations!

Should have taken the blue IMO. Very creative and imaginative, extremely well done. Keep up the good work!

I find it intriguing when people seem to be completely visually defined by the manipulation they undergo on their bodies. Especially when it is administered by a third party.

She is cute and the pic is great. You have a way of pushing photos into an exciting realm - the fish obviously does it on this one.

I don't know what are you talking about, but Su is an international Star and she can appear in many places.

The lighting set-up could be improved, but the overall brightness works very well with the subject(s). Terrific concept and model. Definitely near the top of the heap for me!

hmmm...looks like the cover for a Marilyn manson album...great ink btw 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2008 12:15:35 PM
Very nicely done...looks like an ad (almost), I'd clean up the fish bowl a bit and tone down the lighting just a bit on her right side of her face (left side of image)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2008 09:52:48 AM
Certainly the most lurid of all the images in this challenge and the most interesting - though the model is not really my cup of tea, so-to-speak! 8.

REALLY like this shot. its hot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/10/2008 06:53:56 AM
I wouldn't have chosen a red background given your subject has red fingernails, red in the hair and is holding a "redish" goldfish.

That's pretty wild. My only complaint is the red background. I think she'd pop more on black, but not a big deal.
