Troublants! I think you got that "moment" you are trying to capture. Lovely work! (and model) Fascinating eyes. Best regards.
Yet another one of your hotties, John. Keep 'em coming.
Thank you Ric. I think that eye colour changes very often when one starts to play around with contrast, skin tones and other parameters. I rarely feel the need to do this, but if a shot demands it, the best thing is to surround the eyes with the appropriate PS tool, and work on the remainder.
I thought you would post one like this. Excellent work with her. I must ask how you capture eye color so well. I shot a lady recently who had wonderful hazel/green eyes, and I failed to capture her eye color fully. I don't think she was posing in this shot. This looks like you kinda shot it while in transition to another pose. I bet you were both trying to come up with the next pose, you saw her move and you either stopped her or just shot it because you were watching her through the lens. Great skin, I love her facial features, and her sholders and the tones of muscle/bone/shadows are great. Nice catch.
Yes, those eyes are amazing, I hate to be cliche, and say she's staring into my soul, but wow. Great photograph John, definitely captured "that moment" and the lighting is perfect.
She makes an intense engagement with the lens/photographer, perhaps based in her knowledge of life behind the other side of that lens?
Portrait 2 Was she posing here or not, not really, I don't think so. But those eyes are so beautifully expressive .....
