Thanks all for sharing ur wonderful comments. I will read them and reply to u after this.

Here's another shot from the beautiful Natalia.
Same PP as the previous shot. I cropped a bit to fill up the frame and decided to try this new border.

If u want the border, just let me know.

Wow Talisman!
Amazing girl. Wonderful pose. Original take.

You have a beautiful model, nice body language, nice face expressions, every thing is fine accept the light on the model, it got too much shine on the body and face of the model.

Hi Talisman,
great image, impressive model,
excellent work!!!


Superb gradient background, did you do this in photoshop or you used a real spotlight to create that effect? I would be interested to know how. Technically, this picture is awesome, great exposure, no overexposure anywhere in the picture. The model is extremely beautiful, the crop is almost perfect, specially in the bottom where you see the entire hand but to me it a pitty you cut her right elbow :-). The focus is dead there on her eyes. Did you use a color reflector to give her some special tone or it's just her skin that is so perfect? Her belly is extremely sexy. Well done! must have been a pleasure to spend time with her! She looks very professional

This one is much better than the last one. For the even tone of her skin, her pose and her sexy, but sweet, face expression. I would leave a little more space at the top to see her complete elbow. Beautiful photo and model. TFS


Another good shot, good light and great pose from your model.

The highlights on her skin are better here, nothing overexposed but plenty of 'shine' on her skin, it works very wel IMO.

Were you using a fan to get the 'blown hair' effect?

Don't underestimate the value of space in a photograph. Personally I think you would have been better off with a simpler frame and more room - particularly above her elbow, where it touches the top of the picture. (btw we can see her legs below the bottom part of the frame!)

Keep up the great work


Here we are..)) That's a great studio shots. Skin tones are very nice..Nice mood, and personnality, a good model always help. The background is well lite and the fading is just right.

better light here, but the framing is too narrow

i missed this one :P
the light is more even here bro
the skin tones look more even though out, the highlights look very good on my mac screen :)
i think those on windows may see it as too bright...im still trying to find a good balance for the levels on mac and windows displays...but based on my printing trials, the mac seems to be closer to the final print results :)


nice shot.
professional model and she's pretty, I love to shots her for a days :)
okay, for this photo...
If you see from natural side, this photo more better from your "My first studio shoot". you still can see texture and detail in her skin (but yeah... still to contras and shine for me)
but if you see from dinamic style, I like your "My first studio shoot"
my coment is...
1st,did you using a softbox for this shot ? if yes, maybe the flash its to close with your model.
2nd, still i don't see the highlight in curve of her body and also no dimension too.

tfs and very well done.

best regards
