[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yes, another picturwe of my sister! This was actually very experimental, and me trying out a whole new style of picture.

I tried doing it inside first, using a fan and a whole array of lighting (managed to get the whole family involved! Ha ha! I had my sister sitting there, my mother holding the fan and my dad positioning on the lights/holding a reflector!), but in the end we weren't getting the results I wanted.

We tried once again in the garden, using a very low tech set up! A simple white sheet hung on the washing line behind my sister, who simply sat on one of the dining room chairs.

A few shots later, and after waiting for the right gust of wind, I got this shot.

Some PP, added the white border.

Hope this description isn't too long!

olá Philippa
Será um anjo?
Boa composição e efeito

Hello Philippa,
I really like this soft texture of the picture and this proximity of your model. Nice lightning, compo and details. This is a beautiful portrait. Thanks,

What caught my attention on gallery is the glance and the smile; my thought flies to Mona Lisa…
This photo has some mood in it and from this point of view is well done.

Season's Greetings Philippa!

Cool composition for your portrait. In my humble opinion you should keep more details of her skin, Perhaps too much filtering here.

PS Your description is not too long (^_^).

Beautiful portrait shot with nice softening filter.

Well taken


I was wondering if you could post the original file in as a workshop..I would like to tinker with it.
This is fin but as stated befor there is a loss of skin texture that hurts it a bit.

Hi Philippa,

Nice framing but I agree with other members you have lost fine skin details. Overall good attempt and TFS.



That's amazing pic. I like special lighting in your photo. She looks like an angel:)

Hi Philippa, I toned the light down a bit in a workshop, see how you like it. She's a great model for you. Nice pov.
