Once more I got the chance of working with "Lorrie" a make-up that now travel in the States, and Europe, and won many competion. I think me and her, are seriously hitting off. Plan of working together, a lot more. Once again an improvised mini-studio, at the back of the bar. 2 speed lights. 1 to 5 ratio. Not really into flat lighting, which in certain circonstance works fine, but that type of lighting is more my style, then again you have to "ajust" to the client. But here, I free to do as I feel. This shot is unretouch, it didn't need it..)) Full frame, as most of my shots, only resized and sharpened.

There is been a lot of talk about too "much" technique, and not enough "artistic approach". In many ways I just can't agree with those members. I guess they havn't realised, that once you got the technique, down the path, you can express yourself, and concentrate, on content only. Tired of arguing this specific points, so I decided that I've said my piece, enough to not want to discuss it any more. Now, I'll stick to what I know, and if someone are interest in discussion, well, I will, but I won't try anymore to convience any body other wise.

Well, I don't like this kind of make up but I must look beyond.
I do not much like the portraits in general, I stop only when there is something that touches me.
Here, there is a beautiful emotion, sensuality and the charm of femininity.
The texture of her skin and light are essential.
I can guess that this woman without makeup is very beautiful, and that's what you have photographed : the sensuality of a woman.

Great photo, Denis:
1. Good composition and format.
2. superb sharpness.
3. sweet skin textures.
4. Lighting wise that avoided the danger of OE.

I agree with Daisy on the portrayal of female sensuality.

Hello Denis,
Splendid face painting! I like the light and the sharp focusing. A very sensual look and a perfect crop!
Very neat work in this posed portrait.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier
