From the "archieves", an shot, that I prepared for posting here, but never came around to do so..)) So here it is. You know the drill....bodypainting..and studio type lighting..using 3 speedlights.

I know I make my life miserable using all of those devises...but I just love, all of photography aspect...even technique...)))

I was still testing, my radio systeme, so the light metering is set on average metering...just to check how it reacted.

Hi Denis, I don't have enough knowledge of studio lighting, to give your work any type of a useful or constructive critique.So I will inform you of how I, a novice of studio work, view your image. I note this was a set up pose, for you to test & adjust if required? I note that the light shows off the female's face & ear with great details & natural colours,did you shoot in RAW or did you have to set your WB for shooting JPEG? Her hair I thought was to dark & lacks detail,was this your purpose or did you adjust for that later?
I also noticed that her shoulder was sharp & detailed while her chest & neck were not,but I found that gave interest & depth to the body,again did you leave as is ,or did you adjust the lighting to be less severe on her chest area? The male model has an even light or perhaps just a tad more on his back & shoulders than on his head,but enough that he balance well in making the female model stand out as the main subject.I'm surprised that TL members, who are familiar with studio work,have not critiqued this interesting image,as their critiques would help us better understand the quality done here.Hope you have the patience for my input Denis.

Hi Denis

Not bad at all, Denis! I like the lighting on her collarbone that reveals all the subtle tonal nuances. Great color, sharpness & composition, with excellent graphism. I might have lightened the area above the guy's head at top right, as the tones are starting to bleed together. Other than that, a perfect union of technique & art! Tfs!

Boa noite Denis
So chromatic and elegant, this duple portrait. Light is well handle and I like the " wrinkles" breaking the yelow at the man back make it more harmonious and not so extensive. She is super...the painting is superb and they look great. The body (curves) language is very sensual and have a magic atmosphere.
It is always a pleasure for my eyesthis kind of works. It is a language I really care and touch my sensibility.

Hi,interesting and dramatic also strange in a science fiction way.Maybe the image might have gained by shifting it more to the right.More of the woman less of the man.But I like the concept.All the best,Otto.
