With the understanding that everyone should "do their own thing" or "find their own voice" to some extent, I request your personal likes and dislikes on this. I'm talking as little as a hair or few, or entire locks. For example: That's no glamour shot. Its not fashion. It won't sell makeup. I wasn't going for that. That said, are the stray locks around her eyes and forehead a big problem for you? How about the few individuals near the mouth? I shoot outdoors mostly. Some of my shots of people with long hair the breeze will catch it and blow it across their face. A lot of times I love the look of this so don't go to great lengths to prevent it. Does anyone feel "no hair on the face" is one of those rules like "don't cut off hands and feet" that should be followed to the greatest extent possible? Or is it more like one of those things without a rule and entirely depends on what the photographer wants? Maybe this was more a C&C post - apologies if that's the case.
