Tying the knot? by Peter Elliston

About the Image(s)

Details: This is another recent studio shot which I had arranged to shoot these two models Jess and Ed, who also doubled up as Catwoman and Batman - probably an image for another month, but this one was before they swapped their roles. What I was hoping for was a bit of attitude in the image and a story of their relationship which actually was a real one. Taken with studio flash on Fuji XT3 1/125 @f9 ISO 200

Peter, Very nice image. I would not change a thing. Is this what they call Flat Lighting? No shadows and smoother look. You have your subject separated from the background. Great Job.   Posted: 05/08/2023 08:10:22

Hi Peter,
Yes, they have an "attitude" with their smug expressions, especially Ed. The lighting is perfect, and you captured their eyes beautifully. The details are sharp throughout. Nicely done.   Posted: 05/08/2023 19:52:41

Peter- Not sure I would want to run into these two in a dark alley. They convey lots of attitude. I had a little trouble seeing the hand tying the knot at first because of the dark tie and dark jacket. Interesting image.   Posted: 05/13/2023 14:31:25

Peter for me ... I do not like the models. Probably very nice people but what they project is disquieting enough that I am left with a negative impression. The technique itself is of your usual high standard but I wonder if the models could have been used/posed differently.   Posted: 05/14/2023 13:34:58
