Thanks bro airforce1 However, flickr seemed to have changed their system... i still couldn't embed the pic here... pls advise.
Thanks bro LowLights and limwhow for your comments Maybe i will try again on other photogs of the model with more warmer skin-tone and without BLUE hair... will play with other hair colour... maybe pink
u need to watch out for the sharpness in your portraits. they look quite blurred did you shoot at a low shutter speed?
like airforce1 explained, you will need to adjust the brightness and contrast. you also need to adjust the skin tone so it doesnt look too cold, i like what the skin tone you have in #2.
Thank you bro limwhow, bro takeshi.lum, and bro Lx3ChuA for your feedbacks
To bro limwhow: I just follow the instruction on skintone colour as posted in the sticky in this IR forum. No, i didn;t change my filter. I am still using my D70-IR with the R72 filter inside it.
To bro takeshi.lum: Yes, i think i overdo the 'lens-blur' effect as instructed in the skintone colour instruction posted in the sticky in this IR forum. Maybe i will try to re-do them. My D70-IR is not calibrated. No i wasn't using a slower shutter speed even though i was shooting in manual mode. May i have your advices on how to make my pic sharper straight-out-of-cam, without using 'sharpener' in PP?
to bro LxChuA: Glad you like the soft-dreamy effects. But like what bro takeshi.lum siad... mine were too blurred, so i will need to re-do them.
Bro I just the opposite... I will shoot with the biggest hole tat I can find in the lens... Because I like the dreaming effect tat bro SDW doing.. Portrait there is no fix rule... I saw from a famous shooter his portrait all blurr blurr... Hope this help...")
Yup, in landscape we would want things to be as sharp as possible. But in portraits, some things need not be as sharp, except the eyes, and we want to get nice bokehs. So I tend to keep my aperture larger.
