About the Image(s)

This is one of my studio shoot image .
My student co-worker has no modelling training but this pose look very natural.
I feel that his colored version does not require any editing at all .
( Small amount of blemishes but he is happy with it )
The colored version is good but I like to see how it will look in monochrome.
His shirt turn out very well and I left the left side of the face dark because I like my portraits dramatic. He is fit and trim so can take the board lighting well.

Very interested in your suggestions re shooting and editing .

Definitely the bnw version is more characterful. I do not want to say something about highlights, contrast, brightness etc as they vary from screen to screen. Choreography and the story are important for me. Well-done Angela.   Posted: 03/04/2020 04:18:43

An excellent piece of work, Angela. Personally, I like the B&W version better. The subtle vignetting makes the model stand out more. You have also used the whole tonal range from black to white.   Posted: 03/08/2020 17:26:20

Depth of field and sharpness is impressive. B/W image is by far the best. The lighting is great as you can see by the highlights in his eyes. The pose you have him is very suitable for image.   Posted: 03/10/2020 19:41:00

Thanks David.
We usually like to have the catch-lights at 2 or 11 o'clock position but the lighting used dictate what we get.
In posing, we usually learn what we should avoid, then let our talents ( models ) get into their most natural position.   Posted: 03/24/2020 15:16:27

Character posture, expression is very good, the light is downy, black and white effect is better. Well done.   Posted: 03/12/2020 15:17:38

The monochrome version is definitely the better option. Very good modeling job by the non-model. I wouldn't change a thing about this image.   Posted: 03/16/2020 21:02:29
