I have always loved simple pictures. Classy. Lovely colors.
Hi, John This is a beautiful, sultry pose. Terrific light - and her eyes! When I was a kid - maybe even before I was born - there was a song, "Jeepers creepers, where'd you get those peepers?" This probably doesn't translate into French (or Greek!) but your superb capture of her eyes made me think of that old song.
My feeling is that when you take a portrait in an indoor setting, the background can either distract or add a flavour to the photo. I guess it is for the viewer to decide on each occasion. I have tried removing the green and red image on the left and I find that the picture then loses it's personality .... but, again, that is very personal and my own is just one opinion.
the backgroud's bad here.. :\
John - Welcome back! I hope that while in Rome you did as the Romans would? I spent two weeks in Rome and had a splendid adventure. We'll have to compare notes. You have an excellent model here. I know that just being around such youth and beauty would make me feel about twenty years younger. Well done!
Very lovely and clean, nice beauty lighting. Background? hmmm
Thanks Ken. No, I don't have any clients, so I guess it stays!
If this portrait was done for your own pleasure, and you like what you see, then by all means leave it like it is, I dont find it distracting, but if this was done for a cliant, and they dont like it, then it must go, "the customer is alway's right" Its like, I have a favorite shirt, but my wife dont like it, but I ware it anyway, because it pleases me! "Love this photo" I should have said: I was so captivated by her natural beauty, nothing else seemed to matter! Ken.
Indoor portrait .. cont Yes, the background is a little distracting, but you may find the expression interesting ...
