"Part One"

Skee's back!

What a hot weekend, the temperatures soared over here in Skeetown, almost too hot to do any editing, but I still had too, and as a result, I don't want to do any more, not this week at least.

Anyway, was skee missed? :-)

Ok ok now on to today's shot:

A rather attractive woman :-), yes, but I want you to see futher than that:

This shot is all about the "C" word... "COMPOSITION"
it's also about the "L" word... "LIGHTING"
which I might add was achieved simply by a single speedlite flash gun, off camera.

I rarely work in studios and hence I have no studio equipment, when I need, I hire, but there are so many ways one can make up for not having expensive equipment, normally, our imagination is our greatest hindrance.

Understanding the basic principles of composition and lighting, is, in it's self, simply , yet complex.
But it has great rewards to anyone willing to spend that extra time learning.

Skee's back!

I love the image, the composition is great, colours are lovely but I have to say even before I saw your text I wasn't totally convinced by the lighting, first I thought it was a little harsh, then I decided it was the reflections on the forehead, the nose and the elbow that I found distracting. This may not have shown on a white model, but does show rather on her skin. I still love the picture though! Very effective

very nice shot, shes married??? hmmmmmmm..................
Nice stuff...I have a few issues with the lighting however. I think you could have made it a bit harder to reveal more shadows.

Mr Skee, love the composition, Lighting works for me but my niggle is I AM NOT feeling the model though, not feeling she carries the shot well, not feeling the look AT ALL.

That doesnt look like wedding ring. Then again I might be wrong.

I do like the composition, very effective.

That's not a wedding ring. I don't even think it looks like an engagement ring.
Nice shot,what is the look suppose to be saying?Hard to decipher the expression.

Skee, I like your advice, but I'm not seeing any of that in this shot. I understand you are trying to pull and the lighting, but it does not work at all with this shot.

The lighting is too...too much. Like Jide said, we need more shadow. The composition. Well....maybe the model has more to do with it. The tilt is cute but when you dont have impact in a photo then no matter how much composition you jack into the shot, it still doesn't pass.

Why so critical you ask? You do this for a living, so I get to rag on you all day smile
