Here is one from tonights shoot, please have a look and C&C always welcome.
Don't know what your trying to achieve here but draping a blanket over her head doesn't cut it for me, even a low key shot should contain information and form, not clip the shadows and use better props. H
Beautiful eyes. They really would've popped even more had she not been wearing that bright lipstick, which seems to have been applied a bit sloppily (I'm sure you can fix that in post processing, though). I love the wisps of hair!
Here it is with the lips toned down a bit
Much better! Now you can really see the eyes pop! The last thing I would fix would be to make the eyeliner fade at the edge just a bit, so that it doesn't stop so abruptly at that bottom edge. Then I think you're done! Did you use that famous old National Geographic photo for inspiration?
I think somewhere in my head was that photo, but I havd not ad a look at that one in a few years
i like it,, it has that cool look to it.. but i think you have chopped a little two much of her head off
I'd like to see a bit more DOF...the edge of the fabric is O.O.F. Actually, it almost feels like it should be sharper over all.
The crop feels a bit too tight...but the more I look, the more I don't mind it.
I agree that the 2nd version is better (without the lipstick job).
Looks like she is from Star Wars
The face looks out of focus to me, but the eyes have a nice look to them. I'd leave the lipstick all there, its a sort of point of contrast or attention getter. I may have had her lift her chin up about an inch too.
Here is the one that is not cropped so tight
I like the idea. Her eyes are haunting and the cape adds mystery. Not sure the quality is there. Seems like it should have been shot on film to get some rich tones.
