Re: Black Swan

Well it will not be any surprise to you that these are not for me Fi. We are on opposite ends of the spectrum in this genre. For me they are over-lit the lighting is flat and the model's skin looks too artificial.

However you have achieved exactly what you set out to do so you are right to be pleased with them. In this style you have nailed it. Its just that this style does not appeal to me I like last one but would have cleaned up the feathers going out of the frame on the RHS.

Re: Black Swan

the lighting is absolutely meant to be how it is because of the nature of the theme there is a lot of detail going to be lost in the dress and feathers... they are certainly not over lit. ( not sure what you mean if you mean over exposed ?) the lighting isnt flat its even, well even ish..... lighting was beauty dish from the side and above on the left and softbox on the front right. the beauty dish being 1 stop higher than the soft box. ( as you can see bu the shadow on one side of her face and her nose I do get they arent everyones cuppa tea . ( isnt everything)
Thanks for the input tho appreciate it.

Re: Black Swan

I guess that the difference in our monitor set ups will affect how we see the images. The shadows on the face look less than a one stop difference to me, but I know that you have a much darker set up than me from when you said that you had lost Becca's black shoes in a shot with a black BG where I could not only see the shoes but also the shadows cast by the lights.
