Great photos as usual from you, but this time I think you have used way too much makeup AND neat image. But the lightning is just superb.

Another very nice series, really! However I think you did a bit too much with makeup and smoothing. You practically mannequinized her!

Examples: #1, #8 - really, get a display dummy, do some makup and snap away... especially #8 - so puppet-like!

No offense meant, maybe you really wanted to achive that effect - if so: congratulations, well done. If not - too much!

#2 is great, a bit too much light maybe on nose and around the lips, but the photo really works, great!

#3, #4 - beautiful, I would look for too much light here too - a bit more structure in the facewon't hurt.

#5 - pose is great, light is good, there is something about the face... it's maybe that "do I HAVE to" look that puzzles me here.

#6, #7 - outstanding. A bit too soft, too perfect, but you managed to not make a mannequin this time. DOF, light, the pose, the detail/sharpness is wonderful.

I really like #6.

Thanks for sharing- I always enjoy your work - but I am just a fan of a less artifical look - personal preferences.

Regards,
Th.

I did use a heavier than normal skinsmoothing on these however.
Your stuff always amazes and impresses me, Frank, it's one of the reasons i kept coming back here to read the forums before i registered. These are a great set and show your posing versatility yet again. If i may say so, I think the skinsmoothing is a bit too heavy on these, though! she almost looks like a porcelain doll - too perfect to be human. I see the skin and just think it's a heavily doctored photo. If the porcelain thing is the look you wanted though, then very well done!


EDIT: this mainly applies to the first and last!

Beautifuly done!

I like very much this "a porcelain doll' effect on model's skin.. Her look is perfectly adapted to the scene.. I love this range of images very much. Great job..

PS. I am even more curious to see the right out of camera images, following the workflow from setting to finishing.... It's really interesting for me.. A man at work.. Thank you, Frank, for sharing!

Excellent photos Frank, but that woman sure looks stupid with a coffee cup on her head.
