I now have an "eye" pic to post.



This all started with a phone call, "Daddy, will you take my picture?" [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
Tell me what you think.

I like the idea. I'm a big fan of that style. But you've got blown-out highlight on her cheeks and forehead that are overdone. Is this a post-processing choice, or was the original blown-out?

Turn that modeling light to full blast...... her pupils are very large (likely because the room was dark..... dial that modeling light all the way up and the pupils will be smaller.

Your right on the highlights. I did quite a bit of post production,( I know...not real good at it)

Here is the original as shot next to the final...



Here is my first try...



Seemed to lack in contrast when posted though, so I decided to go to the extreme somewhat.
We can't all be blessed with porcelian skinned models with expert MUA's, but I still love my little girl.

Thanks alot for commenting, I appreciate your help.

I see what you mean Dave, I did have the modeling light(100 watt)on full power but the beauty dish eats alot of that.
I could've had it a bit lower or had her look into it first, not sure she would've been able to find the lens though.
I was hiding behind a lightstand and a homegrown white translucent reflector.

FYI: I shot an old vivitar 283 flash through it for the lower catchlight.

Thanks for commenting.

Oh, cool. See, there's plenty of detail in the original. I think the "perfect" shot lies somewhere between your two attempts. You're on the right track, though!

Little time and a little patience. On the right track, my quick glances as I now do here on GG may i suggest something small, trivial, but effective. Do a little burn on the earings there, giving them some detail would add to the overall image. SO much attention on the eyes going to the brightest spot which is the earings here and it should be her eyes. Well on the way though, good post work and shot.

If you are using an AB, you can get a 150watt modeling lamp for it (they have them or you can buy them at home depot for about 50% of the AB price). The brand name is "hologena" and I think that philips makes them....
