Here is a photo of model Laura O. It was taken at the recent Dallas Adventure.



Thanks for any comments on this little experiment in Library manipulation.

Cheers,
rfs

I like this picture with the darker colors of the backround and the hair color and eyes. I know norally it is not good to have the pupils large, but I think this works well with the picture in that it isn't in a bright light setting. As alwise I do like to see the work you do the you post. Mike

Granted I am no Pro. but it seems that my eyes keep being drawn to the book in the foreground instead of the models eyes. maybe its just me?

Beautiful eyes.

Ok, what does "... this little experiment in Library manipulation" refer to? Is that an artificial background? A little green screen wizardry?

Regardless, nice work. Lovely lady. Thanks for sharing.

Does that mean my idea of keeping the book sharply in focus (and prominent) was sufficient to divert attention away from the hot spots on her face?

Ummm.. no, not really. Of the three centers of interest (the blown out highlights, Laura's eyes, and the book) I spend less time on her eyes (which really is a shame!).

Did you shoot this in RAW? If so, have you tried bringing the exposure down a stop or so?
