Anna

Anna is a full time model with around a year of experience. She is a very bubbly and zany person which I think does come through in the pictures.

The background is the same one that was used in the Holly shoot, but this time I decided to swallow the creases, sheen and other variations.

This is a crop from #2. It has a little skin smoothing applied As have all of the crops. Some of them were quite merciless.

Re: Anna

The model is very relaxed and very good at the poses. However her makeup is too greasy and gives alot of shine to the face and there is something about the eyes in the closeup face shots they look over sharpened, is this the way they are or did you sharpen them? Good set though and good lighting.
Hate the red hair but that's just me old fashioned.

Re: Anna

Thanks Colin. I was not keen on her make-up either, but put it down the the generation gap! I only applied my standard medium sharpening in PS and did not sharpen the web images. I was impressed with the sharpness I got out of the camera. #6 was taken with the Nikkor 24-70 f2.8. Most of the later shots were taken with my Nikkor 85mm f1.8 which is my favourite portrait lens. I did a little skin smoothing in the crops.

By now she will be back to natural hair - until the next time!

Re: Anna

Graham, I see on your profile that you allow members to edit your photos so I took it upon myself to edit two of Anna. Hope you approve. Number 6 &7.

Re: Anna

I can live with #7, although her mole has gone on her arm and her hand looks artificial, but don't like the hair in #6.

Graham,
I did not do anything with the hand, perhaps it is the effect of a bit of skin smoothing. As for the hair in 6 all I did was lighten it slightly, I thought it looked slightly better, but it is all a matter of taste.
Colin.

Re: Anna

I quite like the smoother skin Colin has produced, but, is it me or do her teeth in 6 look a little odd?

In this set I only did a little skin smoothing in #6. Her teeth are not perfect - see the other Anna set where they show more.

As with all other aspects of photography, skin smoothing is a matter os personal taste (unless the image is going to be used for a publication) and I prefer smoothing to be on the lighter side and not universally applied.

In the other Anna set I've applied a little smoothing to the quite often huge crops from the original images as they were quite merciless. I find that Portrait Professional goes too far for me in the initial stages and even reducing the various adjustments in PP does not always give the subtle results I prefer so I usually reduce the opacity of the PP when I use it. I more often do it manually.

Re: Anna

I did whiten the teeth in No.6 and apply a very little skin smoothing mostly to remove the shine on the face. PP works very well if you have the original high resolution image but obviously not as good going over work that has already been done and on a low resolution JPEG web image. PP can be quite subtle if you want it to be on the other hand it is very easy to go too far over the top, just a matter of practice. I have used it for some time and I am happy to recommend the program.
Colin.

Good point Colin I've had PP for a while now, but obviously don't use it enough to get the best from it (yet).
