no flash. there was a window from behind me... hence the bright light you seeit's not bad. just the harsh flash ruins the lighting. i think you used a pop up flash or another flash straght on?
the concept behind the shot is nice but the execution is not top notch.
I do not see what you see, and appreciate the detail what you describe here.hmm i like the joy in her smile. and the tight crop.
also like the details of her hair
Urm, the best person to comment would be the subject itself.. I'm sure she would not find anything flattering about the hair, angle, posture or even her smile.. BUT, that's not the point..Got this shot I took which i felt was pretty nice. Some people might beg to differ with the tight crop but I like it.
Now I'm scratching my head cos can't decide how to best process it. Comments? Suggestions?
still wont work.. A woman's deep neckline and collarbone is very very sexy and it could have angled to be more flattering. But assuming this isn't a posed shot, even angelina jolie won't look flattering.. Honest!Ok thanks guys I think I get it.
Now imagine same pose, same angle, same lighting... different person? Haha
Can probably try to lomo the heck out of it or apply the "lancey"-effect (b&w, high contrast, film grain, and shadows) - check out his !@# thread if you haven't seen his work. They're very good. Good luck !
