My lady....

This is my lady....my daughter! A great girl and I am very proud of her!

If I want to make photos inside the house, I always ask her to pose for me. Thats not what she wants most of the time, but sometimes......YES!!

For this photo we took a lot of light from all over the house. I didn't want to use a flashlight, so we tried this way.

This is my girl... my lady!

Have a nice sunday!

Hallo Janneke,
geslaagde compositie, mooi 'off-centered'. Vind het zelf altijd moeilijk met portretten:"moet het hoofd er nu helemaal op of niet?" Jij hebt een goede keuze gemaakt die waardering verdient.

Haha, da's stom!!
Zit al de hele tijd op de gallery te kijken. En dacht... nou Jan, waar blijf je met je foto??? Dus ging maar even naar je foto's kijken.... Kom ik deze foto tegen. Hahah Had gewoon mijn eigen nichtje niet herkend!! Wat een stoot!!

ciao ciao Marco

P.S.: ur lady.. is beautiful!!

Very nice portrait, good mix of natural and halogen light, nicely composed.

I'd like to know more about your post-processing treatment - gaussian blur on her face, I'm guessing? Or just noise reduction?

Great sharpness in her eyes though, very effective indeed!


great and professional portrait Janneke
simply using a homemade technology the photograph, thanks also to the beauty of your daughter, results excellent for colors
and definitions

best regards sERGIO

Nice Portrait Jan, I like the crop on this image I think it adds drama. Composition is excellent and the blur works well here. The lighting has caused an exceptional amount of colour range from strong blues, to subtle reds and bold yellows. I love it... TFS


Hello Janneke, you can be proud of you as a mother and as a photographer.
And you can be proud of your daughter. She is very pretty. And she is nice to pose for you. I do the same with my boys and their girlfriend when they are available. I have so much fun doing this with them. You can see pictures of them in my portfolios.

Here I like your close-up and tight croping. Nice wind in her hair, it makes the picture so natural.
And I do like you, using the light available because I don't like the colour that the flash makes and the hard contrasts.

Very sharp image.
Good black bg to go with ther shirt.

Very well done! Yan :)
ps: many thx for your review in "Wonders of Autumn".
I couldn't make the people go away but I had a free 4 seconds without anyone so I had to be fast shooting ;)))

a wonderful crop :) a very nice, innocent, sweet expression on your great girl's face :) and a very successful experiment, in my view janneke :)

it was, indeed, a very clever idea to avoid the use of flash :)

thanks for sharing this one :)

Shes's really pretty. Very nice portrait.


Really great lighting- it is somewhat spooky, but sensual at the same time. That's just my opinion though. :)
Great sharpness- and I really like how her hair looks. Nice details and clarity- interesting tilt.

in one, no two words: beautiful portrait, Janneke!

Hi Janneke,

Beautiful portrait! . . Beautiful eyes . .
I like the way you captured with purple light from her right . .
You must be proud of being her mother . .
Lovely picture my dear friend . .


Many thanks for your kind words on B R O M O .

One of the best portraits lately Jan
VERY natural and strong!!

(nu ga ik als de wiedeweerga uitloggen, mijn oude moedertje wacht in Breda :-) ..) smiles


Hello Jan, Lovely. I like how you almost filled the frame with her face. Her eyes are expressive, and there is good exposure. Best regards, Danilo

Hello Janneke,

Beautiful portrait.
Nice composition, lovely skin tones.
She is beautiful. TFS


Nou ja zeg de appel valt niet ver van de boom.
Een prachtige dochter. Ook een natuurlijke pose en mooie uitsnede.
Toch heb ik een aantal opmerkingen om dochterlief nog mooier te maken.
Er zit een magenta kleurzeem in de foto. Dit gaat redelijk goed met de zwarte achter grond maar op het voorhoofd lijkt het alsof ze in de disco is.
Dan kijk ik naar de wenkbrauwen en die zij even hard ge-soft als het gezicht. Als je de top laag soft (zoals de foto is) en de laag daaronder scherp. Dan maak je en masker voor ogen mond en wenkbrauwen. Je kunt de ogen iets ophalen met een dodge en de kleur corrigeren in de workshop de eerste stap. (het kan beter met meer tijd)

Interesting portrait pose. Her lips look silky. Did you do something special there.

Hi Janneke! Whatta beautiful portrait of a pretty model! Lighting is fabulous and the expression is lovely. She's framed very near the top left corner but I like the details and blur in your composition.
Freddie :)

Hi Janneke, wonderful shot of your baby. Excellent sharpness and detail and great pov. I would have stayed away from blue light, though, for this as she looks a bit cyanotic. TFS Redder lighting makes a big difference (or gold).
