Hi everyone! Just wanted to share with you some of my works. Hope you like'em.
I like the first and one with red feather. Loving the eye contact in the 2nd last shot. She has such a strong look about her.
I guess I like the 1st and 2nd for having more tonalities than the rest, making it a little more interesting to look at. A little more light on #2's face maybe? Some of the skins seem over-retouched. But other than that a nice post overall. Thanks for sharing.
The one with the red feather is great, nice work.
I like the 2nd photo, the one with the girl on the chair. It's nicely lit but it lacks focus. Perhaps a little more light in her eyes would help, or placing her head lower in the frame. As far as the rule of thirds goes, her neck is on one of the focus points and this is where my eye is drawn to. From there, the necklace draws me to her legs and further from her face. I feel that with a few changes, this picture could be great.
The first picture is again well lit but the lack of eye contact bugs me.
The other pictures, where the is eye contact it isn't profound enough and where there isn't eye contact I find my eye not being lead anywhere.
Don't get me wrong, I really like your stuff. Just keep in mind where the focus of the picture is supposed to be.
The lighting and "air-y" atmosphere in all of these is quite beautiful....
But this one seems a bit unnatural in the skintone as if it's been painted over with a single color, making the figure appear quite flat, as she has no pores or skin texture from the forehead down:http://granik.com/photos/pics/DSC_7310.jpg
And I can't stop looking at the second to the last image: http://granik.com/photos/pics/DSC_7810.jpg
... it has the most awkward case of foreshortening I've ever seen in a photo. Looks like she has a normal size head, with a midget right arm... teeny tiny arm.
