It doesn't look very sharp. I guess this could be JPG compression. The lighting ratio seems to extreme and I think the exposure is off. Looks like the shadows have been clipped. The hands have too much prominence and the signature is sort is also too obvious.



Cheers,

R frederick got it right. I can see in her glasses that you probably had a soft box or something on the right. Maybe two? It doesn't look like anything is on the left. You could of used a reflector if you don't have another light. It is sort of flat, but it could be the compression as r said. When you prep it for online viewing, you can adjust the pic to remove the 'flatness'. Try brightness and contrast and even some sharpening.

Well, I'm probably gonna be in the minority here, but the lighting ratio here in this case doesn't bother me so much... but what I would like to maybe have seen is the placement of the light changed. I'm thinking either bringing the light a little more in front to give you a little more Rembrandt triangle, or even maybe try pointing it straight across at her for some hatchet lighting (if you did the hatchet thing, a little more fill on the other side might be good)... But as it is now it kinda looks like it's in between the two...

So just a movement of the light and I think you'd have it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Oh the hatchet lighting... that's just what I've always heard it called, it's just when you have the light directly to the side of the model, like 90º from the camera, so there's light on one side of the face and the other side of the face is completely in shadow, in effect, cutting the person in half with the light, hence the "hatchet". In portraits I've seen it done a lot on men, but I've also seen similar stuff done a lot on women (when the girl's got good enough skin to handle the extreme side lighting) in fashion stuff...

Keep in mind I'm no pro by any means at all, I'm just saying what I've seen. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

As far as if the shot can be sold or not, well, who would you be selling it to? You might could sell it to the girl who modeled for you, but as far as like a general audience, I'm not sure 'cause it seems a little specific, like a fashion-style image, and I dunno if the general public would go for it or not... does that make sense? I'm not trying to put it down or anything, but I just think it depends on who you're selling it too...

Again, I'm just a guy learning things too as I go, so I'm just going by my own personal feelings and observations. I'm probably not the one to ask. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] But good luck with everything just the same! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Take care,

Sam
