    Yes, it's body painting. I haven't finished editing these but for now I'll post the previews, and add more later as I continue editing the other shots. Enjoy.

    Love the light in these shots. Excellent camera work. Big up to the MUA.

    I have a hidden fascination with the world of boxing. I feel that they are truly athletes in every sense of the word.

    Love & Bass

    Excellent lighting and great skin texture. There is something above the tall girl's head that's distracting me in #2. May be worth cloning out to complete the shot. #3 is easily my favorite. Did you do much editing on the skin?

    I've thought about cloning out that overhead light in #2...think I may give it a try and see how it looks.

    #3 required almost no skin retouching. Great makeup + beauty dish + spray oil sheen = instant success.

    Post processing is done mostly via successive minor sharpening and compression of A/B channel curves in Lab color.

    I love the first one.. great exposure, perfect lighting!
    In the 3rd she looks a little ghostly (not sure if that was your intent..) maybe warm it up a bit?

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Aside from the fact that I'm generally not a big fan of warm, it's difficult to reconcile with a dim boxing gym.

    I probably shouldn't even post this, but I thought if you disagree you can just forget what I said. I like the idea of warmth, because it makes me think of how a boxing match would be with the energy and sweat and overhead lights pouring onto you. You know 1,000,000 times more about white balance and color than I do, but I thought I'd chime in and give you my humble, beginner's opinion.

    They're very good, and very sexy (in a good way), btw. I was going to tell you that, but I usually try not to post in this forum (leave you professionals alone).
