Please give your comment.
Especially about the expression, lighting and composition.
For composition, I think there's room for improvement,
but unable to do so even after 47 shots.
I wanted to include the shadow and ended up it taken up too much space.
Any idea?

Cheers!

Here's the setup:
1 x flash from the front
1 x flash from right side
50mm - f/2 - 1/15s
PP: Shadow enhanced, noise added and USM 5px 50%

Thanks.
The expression wasn't the best of 47 shots. But the composition is.
Hence I chose this picture.
The focus was on the hand instead of the face,there's a slight motion blur as well due to the slow shutter speed.

Like to know if lighting can be improved as well?
Or anything that is off from this photo?

I've always said this: READ up and plan first before shooting.

Anyway, this genre you're pursuing has a name called film noir. Check it on wikipedia, and you'll instantly know what's missing or not.

Thanks for your pointer.
I'm not particularly pursuing this genre only but at a whole.
Maybe I should state my intention clearly initially, my bad. :)

I'm working on open frame and closed frame.
I did one each, this is the open frame.
The other one, I posted it in portrait n poses.
I'm just using different director's theme to actualize the concept.

But I'm stupid, even after reading up 2 books, I couldn't link the theory to my own pics' analysis. :cry:

I'll be experimenting Godard's theme for the next.
