I'm curious about your critiques on this as it was my first for a costume of this sort.
I used an Amber jell only, I don't remember much else as I lost some data from the file during one of my computer crashes.



I'm here to learn so pick away. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
Thanks again, photogjohn

Hello John,

My personal opinion is that you could use a little more seperation from the background. Either som type of backlighting or some kickers to the sides.

Just my opinion.

Hello Daryl,
I thank you for your input as I was doing some experimenting with gels.

But, I should correct you as to who took this. I'm Frank also known as Frank.
photogjohn had assited me in posting these pictures here and I was giving him some kudos. Guess I should have stated that another way on the post.
I'm the guilty party if the picture is bad. I would say your right though on the separation. I wish I could find this girl again for some other ideas.

Thanks,
lobofe

Wish I had photos of her other costumes such as Alien, and her Beastmaster outfit.
But she's not as pretty as your gal there.

It looks a little flat and over-sharp to my eye, but I have never shot costumes per se. I have done a lot of dance photos involving dancers in costumes, though--see if you like these adjustments; Try running your photo through PS to lighten the shadow underneath the left arm (use whatever technique you are familiar with as there are many ways to lighten the shadow), then create a new layer, add a Gaussian blur (Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur) and set the pixel radius between 10 and 15. Next reduce that layer's opacity to 23% or so to soften the image it a bit. See if the changes appeal to you.

I was reading your other posts and I agree that a little creative backlighting could make your good photo take on a new appeal. Try turning the background image into a layer so it can be moved/manipulated. Select the "Background" layer, drop a new "Duplicate layer" in behind it (make a new duplicate layer and move under it under the Background layer in the layers' palette). On the Duplicate layer, drop a lense flare mid-chest and spread it as far as you like to create an interesting back-light (Filter > Render > Lense Flare; I like "105mm Prime" set to 125% and stretched just beyond the photo's borders). You can decrease the intensity of the "Duplicate-lense-flare-layer" by reducing the layer's opacity in the layers' palette.

See what you think.

Brian

Thanks Brian, guess I have more homework to work on tomorrow.
I'll try anything once, twice if I like it.

Appreciate the tips,
lobofw
