There's a "captive" feel to this, Mike, as though she's imprisioned and is looking up at her captors. That's probably not what you were going for in this portrait, but that's the feel that first came to me when I opened it up. The lighting is superb.
blackdog: No I have to be honest I was just getting her to try different things out - as she is an actress she was really easy to work with. got a lot of quality shots. Mike

Hey Mike,
How do they say this; yes yes.. This is a conceptual work I think. Maybe before a fly, light comes to her face. Light on the fice could be slice softer I think. Everything is fine, model can feel herself much comfortable in front of a master photographer..

blackdog: Hi Ta - you are absolutely right of course - I asked her to look up into the light and her face got too close. A soft box would have helped. Mike
Don't normally comment on potraits Mike but I really like this one. The lighting is great.
blackdog: Thanks Bernie. The hard part is trying to make a potrait interesting to someone who doesn't know the model. I am still working on that - just keeping focused on the formal aspects for now. Mike
nice idea for this pic. good!
blackdog: Thanks - glad you liked it. Mike

My first though was that she looks as if she's cowering, not comfortable. The model's facial expression says more than the body language.
It's a darned good picture.
blackdog: Thannks ellie. I think she chose the squatting position - my contribution was to ask for the arched neck. That said, her range of facial expression was incredible - fun to work with. Mike
This is nice!!
