    Seniors? How old is she?!

    Yes of course what I like and don't like doesn't make a photographer's preference right or wrong.

    The washed out face doesn't really do anything for me, even in the context of the composition. Now we know it's intentional, it'd be interesting to hear more about the rationale behind it and I'm curious to know if intentional over-exposure like this would be best done in post processing?

    Some of the lack of detail is due to the fact that it is over exposed ( intentionally).

    A very controversial statement methinks

    Without coming right out and saying it, Barrie appears to be alluding to the skin textures of this portrait. I have to confess that in this instance I think they are overdone making a skin that looks almost like plastic. There is absolutely no texture so far as I can see and not a style that I'm a fan of. I have however used a couple of software packages that do a much better job of cleaning up skin yet still leave texture. Here is one I reviewed about 4 years ago http://dpnow.com/3953b.html

    Hi Mike -

    Welcome to dpnow.

    Interesting to see your setup - thanks.

    The first image to me is slightly overdone, although I do like the treatment. Great for a magazine shot I imagine.

    I'm trying to develop my portrait skills (not too seriously though) so anything like this I find of interest. It seems to me photoshop and other program skills have to be honed to get the result you have produced here.

    Regards. Barr1e

    Playing With Shop Lights

    Here's one I shot yesterday. I was just playing with your standard clamp lights used in garage.
    I had one clamped on the boom above her and my assistant was holding the other one as the
    main light. This alternative lighting stuff is a lot of fun.
