|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Taken in the late 80's / early 90's. I rediscovered this image when showing camera club members how to scan negatives using a film scanner. I think the lighting was probably 2 large soft boxes or diffusion brollies. Film was probably HP5+. Some sharpening ,dodging ,burning and level adjustment only using PSP X6. Tint added at scanning stage not in PP. |
This was a quite early attempt at a semi hi-key portrait. Feel the image could have more light on the background to make it more white.

Nice mood, very nice silhouette of the model.
Great choice of the B/W here.
My best regards.
I looked at this picture many times before I decided to write my opinion.
The first time I immediately thought that I didn't like at all.
The second time, I was wondering if I had to judge this picture by the criteria of the late 80's or according to the state of mind of nowadays.
The third time, I reasoned thinking of the late 80's and I still thought that I did not like at all this pose (typical of the 80s and 90s).
Finally, here I am !
I don't like the use of grain, that I find excessive, the pose and the fake glance.
But I like your idea to share your work of the late 80's (I'm nostalgic of those years).
In the 80's it was the years of the colors, the excessive makeup ... I would have liked to see this photo in color I think.
Just my personal taste of course.

I like the partial covering of her face using the hair and
the atmosphere created.
The vertical composition fits the image very well.
I'm with Daisy. I think the grain is excessive, but I do think the high key would work. The body shape is okay but the look through the hair is a little contrived.
