new frame grab
Posted 09 January 2006 - 05:47 PM
What do you think of the following still. I whanted something elegant romatic with a stylized highlight. I didnt whant it to look boring so i used a 500 watt photoflood backlight (3200). Then I used a gold reflector board which made the face look warmer. I balanced daylight to make it look even more warm.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INPUT

It looks alot better from the first frames you posted all that time ago...The contrast looks good but i think a little bit of frontal soft light is needed to get rid of those bags under the eyes and then krank up your key to still give you the contrast...

I also agree about the comment on the eyelight. would set it off. maybe even just a subtle bit of backlight on the hair on the left might also look good and help with the seperation.
pretty nice grab.

Good makeup would also help. I put my hand over her eyes and all of a sudden the whole frame looked a little better. One bad aspect of a frame can spoil the whole thing.

The excessive warmness almost negates the romantic effect. It's like the room swallows up her natural beauty. She's a gorgeous girl (girlfriend?) and would probably look better seperated from her background, with an added eyelight, and no distracting artifacts behind her (picture frame, etc).
Now I don't know enough to be handing out any advice, but if I had to reshoot it i'd opt for a darker background, 5600k flo's + generous fill, eyelight, hard backlight (hairlight?), some very subtle diffusion on the lens.
You did however capture a 'look' from her eyes that brings the shot up a notch. As distracted as I was from the overall color, background and lighting -- it's a shot that grabs your attention. Nicely done.
And it's a lot better than your previous pics so keep up the good work. You'll nail it soon.

My only complain is that the models pose seems a bit "unnatural", if you know what I mean.
