I shot both of these yesterday. One is a straight headshot, the other is something I was experimenting with. Which do you think is the more effective shot? For that matter, which do you think is the prettier girl?

#1 is much better in my view. #2 has too much distortion. It makes the model look odd.
cheers,

I'm drawn more to the right photo but I can't decide if it's the photo or the girl.

for me i cant tell if i like the hair in front of the eye in pic one. but it is different and adds some mystery. i actually wish there was a little more light on her face to make the eyes pop more. i do like the shot and the makup is nice.

pic 2 is cool! its like a caricature. as experimenting go's i like it. gotta think outside the box some times and this shot achieves that.

thanks for sharing.

Looks like I got the polarised reaction I thought I might get to the second one. It's a deliberate attempt to produce the anime "chibi" effect, also known as "super-deformed" - when an anime character is feeling very emotional they are sometimes depicted with a big head and small body/limbs.

I should probably spill the beans - these pictures are of the same model. The left one at the start of the session, the right one at the end. She was blonde in the middle (she has a big selection of wigs). Quite a difference, I thought.

I think that sometimes what will work in an illustration environment will not work well in a photography. People expect distortion in "anime" type art work and it looks normal. But they don't normally expect it in a photograph which to most people portrays the real world nature of a scene. Never-the-less, its fun to play with these sorts of things once in awhile. You might work it into a sequence, where you had normal shots of the model in the same outfit and then one that is distorted. I can envision something like that using a negative border strip to show a sequence of photos such as in this example:

I also like the first photo "better." however imvho "hair in the eyes" is pretty difficult to pull off and make it look good, and not deliberate. I personally feel like in this particular photos, it works, but doesn't work really well. I do like the shot though. The other thing i would add is that her shoulders are pretty square to the camera, which is typically a no-no.

Thanks for sharing

That is a really cool idea - I think I know what I'm doing in part of my next shoot...

Thanks for the idea, RFS. You're always kind to us lesser mortals
