We went back in time and shot some Glamour. Would love some feedback on this shot. Looking for feedback on the model, the shot itself and of course the make-up/hair.



Thanks for your time.

Hi Brent,

Hmmmmmmmm. Dare I say that this reminds me of glamour shot by Gary Bernstein years ago. I like it! Her face seems a bit bright but I like the halo lighting and the outfit is like, retro, dude! Far out! Pass the........oh, never mind...flashbacks. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Good day sir and thanks for sharing!

Mike

It'd be a lot more interesting to me if her eyes were open, even moreso if they were looking at the lens.

FWIW

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the comments. Kind of funny Gary did one similar. I'd love to see it just for comparison purposes given his caliber of talent and well, mine. I'm sure it blows mine away.

Thanks for taking the time to comment!!

Ah, a topic near and dear to my heart. My thoughts:

1) Love the hair backlighting. Overall lighting good. Did you just get lucky with the star flare on the sequins or did you do that on purpose?

2) Expression is not bad but for a standing portrait it would look better with eyes open.

3) I think I like the outfit but I can't see it very well. Needs separation from the background. IMO this background was not the best choice with this outfit even though it does make the backlighting look good.

4) Pose is not bad... but does not suit this composition/frame. Too tight, left elbow doesn't look good projecting into small frame. If eyes were open it would draw more attention to her face and help with the tight framing/composition, I think.

A good picture that shows the possibilities for a *great* picture. That's the really hard step, I think... once you learn how to do the basics, tough as that is, then you climb the summit of Mount Detail. Wave down at me as you climb, okay? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Hi Marc,

Fantastic feedback. Much appreciated. To answer your question on the star flare...I used Rolando's black scarf technique which resulted in the flare. So yes it was planned to "hopefully" capture the flares, but I certainly didn't position her in such a way to capture them if that makes sense [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Well, we're going to try the shoot again...we'll see what happens. Wish me luck!! hee hee

Thanks again!

Very Vaudevillian.

I'm certainly no authority, but the first image strikes me as more of a re-creation of a flapper than glamour...But that's just me.

I like the lighting, especially the boa's halo all around her, and you can see everything that we need to, but the styling (hair and makeup combo) to me, is much too "modern" and is a bit off-putting because of the disparity. Additionally, the vintage glamour produced by Gil Elvgren, Earl Moran, Alberto Vargas et al (if that is what your emulation goal is) was not this sharp...It was all just a bit soft, smooth and round, just as the models were (envision an ultra-sharpened watercolor - the below is even still too sharp). I did see your mention of the black scarf, but it still seems sharp to me...

The second image is wonderful (WOW WOW eyes!), but again, IMO, the styling is just too modern for the goal.

I can't wait to see the second go!
