from my studio session with Joanna. Until my next one, you'll all just have to look at "sears portrait studio" style.
Just messin with different ways to process the same photo.
Comments on which one looks best are always welcome...or...if they all suck, let me know.

I like the composition with all the different options as a picture. Kinda the Andy W. of Marlyn Monroe.

like sears, you could offer these differently processed shots on a sample sheet in everything from 8x10 to wallet-size.

Hey, if it buys me a new lens and a 5D for other work, so be it!

Mr. Moyle,

I like these.... Nice lighting.... I love her eyes they are killer.

I agree if it pays the bills and get some new gear along the way..... Do it

I don't like alot of what my customers want but I do it becase it is what they want. Paying the bills is not a creative outlet for me or most of us so we do what we have to.

No need to say that with such contempt. What you have here is a solid portrait, and is very saleable. We see a lot of "creative" work on this website that my be "interesting" or "different" but isn't going to make them any money. If your goal is to make money for new equipment, you're on the right path.

As for your processing, before tinkering with the color...I'd recommend that you clone out the bit of hair that protrudes past her right cheek. It looks like she has a huge hairy mole.

It's a beautiful portrait, and your other processing methods look good. I'm not a huge fan of the blue. #4 is my favorite.

there ya go, buddy! that's the ticket. now you've got your priorities straight! Someone once posted they won't comment on shots of models in front of a seamless. well, since i'm paid to shoot 90% of those models-on-a-seamless shots, and paid not too shabbily, maybe they'd care to comment on that aspect of those images?

I was just joking with Jimmy.

Thanks for your input! I see what you mean by the hair near her cheek.
