Having some trouble getting an image posted from my GG portfolio. This is Natalie from HTL. Be easy on the criticism, I'm new at this and have a terrible temper and I DON'T want to go back to prison. hahahahaha.

Hey Don, kinda new here myself, but since no one else posted yet on this image, I'll take a stab at it.

I like the image, but one thing ruins it for me, and thats her stare. She appears to be staring at something, and I find myself wondering more about what she is staring at than thinking about her. I have no connection with her because of that. If she would have been looking at you when you took the image, it would be far beter in my opinion. However, I also like images where the model isn't looking at you, but it needs to be carefully done to make it work.

Thats not to say you didn't get a whole lot of things right either. I like the angle you created by adding some tilt which makes it more dynamic (something I tend to overdo sometimes). Hair, makeup, choice of model, etc, all very good.

Some things are personal tase, and likes/dislikes will vary from person to person. Such as the background. I really like soft out of focus backgrounds. Enough to tell what it is, yet no real detail to cause your eye to want to linger and explore it. I also like the backgrounds and foregrounds to be a bit darker than the subject to help focus attention on the model. The background here could have been much nicer in that regard by having her step away from it and using a wider aperture if possible. The crack on the wall is another distraction, but not overly so. That can actually easily be removed in PS if desired.

I guess to summarize, in my opinion having her look at you, tilt her head just a tad to the your right, and softening up the background would really make the image stand out.

Hopefully I won't find myself dead, and you back in prison [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Hi Don, the eyes just don't work with the rest of the facial expression. Just my opinion. Otherwise, I like it alot. Got the chance to shoot with Natalie in San Diego and she is great to work with. Here's one I got, hope you don't mind. (I will apologize now if the colors are off, my monitor has been going crazy lately, hopefully it looks OK on someone else's screen.)
regards,
Don
