Great eyes. Did you use a black scarf or add a glow effect?

Actualy used the hints from a post in the post production section on smoothing skin.

http://www.paulsportraits.com/skin/skin.htm

Hope this helps. Still trying to find a black scarf to try that out, none of the stores around here seem to have one that isnt full of other designs.... wouldnt think a black scarf woud be that hard to find.

Over all nice photograph.

There is a couple of soft shadows that with having a strong fill going on becomes distracting a little.

Nice Rembrandt effect spoiled by too much fill for this subject.

Her left eye is kind of deep in shadow. She also has pretty green eyes spoiled by huge pupils in my opinion.

A little more control on your lights and I think you have a winner.

Hi Dean,

I have been looking at this image for a while now. I think JT pretty much nailed it. However, before he posted, I only saw about half of what he pointed out. So, I guess we both learned something! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] At any rate, I think the image is beautiful with a strong viewer connection.



Rick.

Thanks JT, appreciate the comments. Used a softox and a tri-flector to fill. Still learning how to use the reflectors to get the fill to be a little more subtle.

Question.... Would it have been better if the softbox had been moved more infront of her - skimming more of the face rather than pointing at it? It wasnt completely pointed at her, but wasnt completely infront of her either. If im correct, that would allow more light to fall on her and would also constrict the pupils a lil more. Still learning to use it properly I guess. Gotta keep practicing.

Yes, your light would have wrapped around more. Not suggesting you completely flat light her. In this case I just think you had too much fill with those reflectors and the short lit side would have benefited from a one to two stop fill and have the shadow fall off instead of reflected light all the way to the ear, etc. You would have created more depth and I think your subject could handle that scenerio just fine.

Anytime you point a soft box straight at the subject you will lose the effect of what a soft box is actually designed to do. So you had more directional lighting on your subject. Try directing the back side panel from the soft box into the subject at an angle so it wraps around and see if you get more flattering results. The closer that soft box is to the subject, the more soft the light will be as well.

Having your modeling lights brigher or closer to the subject might make the pupils smaller, so yes.

I never did like the tri reflector. Too many alienized catch lights that show up in the eyes. Try just a sheet of foam core or white panel for the shadow side of the face with a one main light set up. If you choose two lights, set the light directly above your camera position at 1 to 2 stops different from your main.

Dean,

Nice photo. Reference the black scarf seems in my reading black nylons would work. I haven't tried it, but have read about the effect. I would bet your model (pronounced wife) would have an old pair that you could cut up and use. If nothing else it will give you an idea of the effect for nothing, unless you cut up a good pair in which case you will be paying forever

If I am wrong about this would one of the veterans on here please correct me.

I like it!! I love the sharpness in her eyes and the softness of the rest. The only thing I'd do is remove the two little dark wrinkles above her eye.
