if I may...your lighting seems a bit flat and your contrast seems a bit flat too...try moving your light at different angles.
and watch out for those Boas! they might Bite!!

Sometimes you need to have flatter lighting when a subject is older or has skin blemishes to take away and de emphasize wrinkles and other physical skin issues. A perfect example of this is when shooting 16 year olds, many of them have acne, and even the smallest acne is brought out more with higher contrasting lighting. Umbrellas give more contrast, and soft boxes give a softer diffused lighting with less contrast. The aperature for both can be set the same or similar and you will still get different results.

The original poster, may have shot in FILM FORMAT, and had it scanned hmm something I still do and I am guessing I am half of your age Don or about hehehhe. Trust me Don, don't get mad because I am calling you old, I am just young and dumn and full of hmmm. He also may not have had the luxury of digital manipulation for his end product.

My shot was done in a haunted house, am posting it because it is one of my favorite times of the year and its my current project. Enjoy

Shot with Leica R-8 50 mm lens mounted on tripod, 100 speed film, lighting with flashlight, and light from haunted house which is not much. Multiple image on the same frame.

oooohhhhhh... very creepy picture. I love it!!! I think the fact that you took it in a haunted house makes it that much more scary for me. I'm such a wuss!

Actually, flat, low contrast lighting was the plan. I used a Nikon D70, 1/500 @ F16 with two medium soft boxes plus a hairlight and background light. Post production was done with Photoshop CS and an Intuos 3 tablet.

Hi Mike.

I like this the best of the images you posted. I thought the poses looked a little uncomfortable in the others from this series.
This one has a nice, sensual feel to it.

I would love to see your work posted a little larger.
This image seems to be losing some definition around the model's chin, where it seems to be blending into the same tones as the shadow on her neck. Might look different on a larger image.

Rule 10 picture.

Yes, little or not contrast does remove facial issues whether you are young or old, however, there are other methods of removing them as well (not digitally speaking) where you still have nice contrast...it's creative lighting which I think is what Don was getting at...you can still have no shadows or smooth lighting and it still have a nice contrast.

Either way, we all have our own methods to our madness....cool shot by the way. This is one of my favorite times of the year as well [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
