A little closer than the last one. Too much? Too Odd?

I've had a long day of product photography and needed to post something different. My perspective may be off, so if it's sub standard then tell me and I'll never show it again.

David,

I like it. One thing I would do si PS out the couple of hairs showing at the lower part of the top cheek b/c they are a little distracting. Other than that, it's very nice.

OK, I'm probably not the one to say this, but, are you shooting for us, or for you? Seems to me one posts (well, not me, but creative ones, ones who are driven to photograph) to share one's own vision. You'll get the answers to "Too much? Too Odd?" whether you want them or not. Technical issues, refinements - those things others can advise you on. But the essential quality of your vision...that I'm not so sure of.

As far as I'm concerned, I like seeing your visions. So far, not "Too much? Too Odd." Quite enjoyable, mostly. Some very much so.

I apologize if I sound as if I'm lecturing. Lately, you've sounded as if you're unsure about where your vision is leading you. Seems to me (not that I'm particularly qualified) that you've been posting some of the most consistantly intimate and strong work here. I always check out your work. For what it's worth, I would only say that you should have more confidence in your vision. Believe me, if I know the crowd here at all, I can promise that people will let you know real quick when you've gone too far.

Take care.

David:

Personally I like the parts that are in focus and don't like the parts that aren't. I had to go back and see if I could find the hairs but didn't think them distracting.

You might want to move further back, use a longer focal length and a smaller apeture setting to capture more focus. Then again it's not my artistic vision. You have a good series going--what's next I wonder.

I really like the overall look, it looks like something that belongs in an art gallery. I especially like the coloration. My only two problems with it are: the way the in-focus part falls off to the out-of-focus part so abruptly. Not sure if you did it in camera or PS, but if you could find a way to make it more gradual, it would be better. I don't really mind the hairs, but getting rid of them would OK. The second thing is there is some sort of unnatural looking pattern running vertical right above the "5" in 2005. Looks like a repetitive pattern of a PS clone tool. But otherwise, I think its great.

Thank you sir! I was wondering if I should have done what you are suggesting, I may just have to explore that next time! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Thank you for the reply sir!

I see what you are talking about in her leg, but I promise It wasn't the clone tool. All I did was open the color image, desaturate it, "sepia tone" it, save it, and then reduced it to 72dpi for posting and saved the j-peg. I wonder if it was just a texture in her skin from the leg???

The focal fall-off was done with the camera. I used a 50mm lens and a 2.8 aperature. Maybe it was too much, I'm not sure yet.

Thank you for the thoughts! I haven't decided about the hairs yet, but I did consider it.

No apology necessary sir! I'm an odd sort of "artist". I shoot because I love it! BUT, I do like to hear other's thoughts on what I shoot; to see what kind of reaction I get. If an image is just freakin boring in the eyes of others, to me, it just doesn't work. If someone says "ok, whatever, take it or leave it" then, even if it's my "vision", I didn't do something I should have. Granted, there will usually be people that dislike something that someone else likes. But, if everyone were to have the same issue with the photograph, then I know I should consider that next time.

I dunno, I just like to hear what people think I guess.

Thank you for looking and taking the time to reply with your thoughts.

Nope, not too ... At the very least, you've demonstrated what a fine tushy she has. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Have we seen her face or will we?
