[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another close up from my model, who is becoming my favourit model (thanx alot for all your time) and she is every time very pleased with the pictures and that gives me a good feeling!
light: same as the post from yesterday
CS3: layered blur, mask for keeping sharp detail, converted to b&w with the great new tool in photoshop cs3, lightend the skin tone and keeping the eyes dark, sharpend and simple framing.

The interesting portrait, uncanny eyes are imparting glitter, I like colours, cool HIGHKEY

nice composition. I like this very clos portrait.

the b&w PP is maybe a bit rough, but the look of the model too, so it's ok.



Not a bad shot Sjoerd
I'm not a fan of blur/PP techniques, but I understand why you would do it, it does give the impression of smooth skin (kinda like magazine ads.)
Nice high-key portrait, I think her eye (on the left) is a little close to the edge of the frame, as is her eyebrow - composition could thus be better.
Overall though a very striking shot
