what do you think?
beautiful subject for these. Here is my 2 cents worth:
#1 is interesting but needs more light on the face. However, the eyes are sharp and the focus is perfect
#2 is much too dark and I can't see enough of the person to have a mood evoked.
#3 is the winner: eyes are sharp, focus is perfect and the lighting is well done. maybe a bit more light on the other side of the face would be good but overall this works for me.
#4 is much too soft for me. the tip of her nose is too shiny and her forehead looks huge
i agree. 3 is the winner. the darker right side works well in this image imo.
i also like the smile on the models face
thank you for your input, its very much appreciated, I was playing around with different lighting seeing what different kind of effects it would have on my face, I agree with your comment on #2 Just thought I'd try different possitions, and #4 I think it might just be that I just have a huge forehead but how do you think the forehead looks big?
we didn't know these are self portraits. that explains a few things.
if you use someone else as a model you can fix some of the problems you encountered.
exactly, like focus was a hard one, but when i try to apply any of these lighting techniques on a real model then i know which one's will work and what captures the viewers eye
Thanks for the input
please explain, i know the focus is off in some of these
it's the focus for sure. in 2 in particular.
also composition is hard if you have to guess where the subject is going to be.
all in all a good practice i'd say.
Am with the crowd on which one is the best. It was a striking photo to me.
In other words, you are being praised for good work: Rushing around from behind the camera to "pose" while not being there behind it to compose it.
They're all pretty dark.
I don't think that you really do have a huge forehead-I think it's the angle of the shot and that I can't see the hair very well.
I also think that you are a lovely subject.
yes I know , i was really trying to get the look that i got in #3 it was kinda meant to be dark
