it is like commercial makeup
the first photo is beautiful. i love the splattering of the yellow
The 3rd one is fantastic, so intriguing! The DoF, tones, and backlighting really work there! Fantastic work!
Out of curiosity, what light set up did u use? Which umbrella if one was used?
like the paint splatters, but the ones of the HOOOOGE flower really take a lot from such a stunning model. just my .02
I used a large boom and an umbrella from the QL1000 series .. Continuous not strobe
VERY nice work. : )
Very outstanding light control, I love how natural it looks.
I am not a fan of the paint splatters :| sorry, but just aesthetically it does nothing for me.
The 3rd image however I am very intrigued by and I think you stopped one photo too short. I would have loved to have seen this shot much higher up, looking down on her more. The thought comes to me that she is the stem of this beautiful flower, but she has to hunch over to make use of the flower. This breaks the illusion for me, and also makes it appear as if she is sad.
I am not sure if bringing the camera higher was either possible with the given lighting, or space, but I do think this could have given a similar style (where the face is covered by the flower) yet allow a more natural view of a flower (we are taller than flowers, so looking down on a human flower would make sense)
Just a couple of thoughts, these are all very good images. I love pushing people even when it isn't needed so don't mind me ^_-
I really like #3. I think your bg is far too dark in 1 and 2. You're also missing some important elements. The hair needs a light, some product, and some work in post. Additionally, you're glossing over some very important parts of the shot in post, if there is any post...
I LOVE one. Great shot.
