Crimson Blue….. Shot with one off camera flash (Alien Bees – B800), 44" Umbrella, Some funky background I found at Home Depot. 
I would love to hear some opinions.. bad, good or indifferent and why.. Thanks..

  1. opinions about photo or about the girl? 🙂

  2. Hey Brent – love the composition, lovely model, great eye contact.
    Colours super, nice background. Your single flash has done a good job of her hair.
    Some skin areas appear flashed out, but I'd guess that is google's treatment of a jpeg, rather than your original edit.
    Nice work!

    I think the blue/turquoise background works very well with her hair and the warm light.
    I think the angle and her pose is perfect.

    The one issue I might take is the overly softened skin.

    Overly softened was my first thought. Dropped the clarity or something, I don't know.

    As +Darren Rye said a little heavy on the clarity, but the lighting and pose are bang on.

    Lovely Rembrandt lighting. Like the pose with her head.

    I like the dreaminess to your processing on this one.

    +Stanislav Psenicica you can always comment on both – but usually we all stick to the photo.. unless its positive about the model..

    +Peter Jordan-Turner That flash out is sort of a style I have.. bad or good I have it… been trying to mess with less of it… 

    +Patrick Metzdorf There is quite a bit of softness – interestingly this looks much less soft on the large original… I think I might have made the mistake of not turning auto awesome off…

    +Darren Rye yep – some love it – some hate it.. super sharp this image would give a different feel…

    +geraldo magela thanks

    +Olav Folland thanks.. I have no clarity in my style 🙂

    +Peter Aikins – thanks.. I think pro models make life easy for us all.. they are well worth the money..

    +Edward Bartel thanks.. that look is great for some.. others hate it… I put it in the middle and still some like it and others do not.. its interesting.. but really we cannot be expected to make everyone happy with everything.. thou we all try..

    Again, I like the soft treatment on an image like this – just my personal taste.
