yes yes i finally talked my friend into being "a model for a day" for me.well...i kinda had to show her pics of her i took first.
i wonder if she'd kill me knowing i've put her pics up here?:confused:
so i've realise that one important thing when taking photos of people u know is that everyone has fun.

o if u guys noticed a slight blurry effect, it cos i softened it a teen weeny bit.

agree, maybe you can use PS to convert it to black and white?

in the first photo, i will prefer not to cut off her foot. also maybe blur the background

This last pic is very nice, got the mood in it. As for the light maybe you can get something to block the sunlight the use flash to brighten the face. Just guessing most likely can't work.
Got not chance and ablity to create such masterpiece.

BTW did u use flash for all the pictures? How you manage to hide the shadow so well?

Some pictures without flash are real good but some you definately need flash especially in broad day light. Fill flash..

You would have to do selective brightness adjustment to balance the exposure of the entire frame. The extend of which this can be done is also dependent on whether the face area has been washed out (contains only 255's for the RGB values) in the original picture.

I modified the first 2 pics a little in PS, adding a little softness in the first pic and corrected the exposure and colour in the second. With you permission, I can post them here for your judgement.

Second picture:

Original -


First tweak - colour adjust and softening


Second tweak - colour adjust, skin touch-up, and softening. The skin tone still looks unatural on my screen, but that's the best I can do for now. I actually prefer the slightly greenish tone in the first tweak.


Please let me know if you like the modifications.

And thanks for giving me permission. I welcome all these practice opportunities.

Are you referring to the background? I sacrificed the background to bring out details on the face. I feel that the background details are not that important, so I let it wash out a bit. Do you feel that the background is over-powering?
