This one was shot for a comp with the theme being "13".
I like it, portrays the sweet innocence
Innocent yes but at the same time, it's pretty dark/moody because of the lighting.
^^ totally agree.. There's an innocence there but I get a sense of darkness lurking close by..
^^^ agree, it's at the back of her, the shading of it
^^^^ Yes there is dark lurking there but innocence is that she isn't aware of it.
That is totally gorgeous.. best shot I've seen here for a long time...
+1, thanks for sharing bazz
like it a lot bazz.
ps let us know how you go in the comp
Very Nice Sir Bazz, I cant belive you manage to keep a bit of floor space so tidy. I reckon I've seen most of your photos with the same floorboards
Care to share setup/ modifier used - single light off Right but its a really controlled light spot - falls off really quickly
My only comment and maybe its my monitor/ or might be the plan -> is the back of the head and back fall off too black a bit too quickly
Fantastic photo, nice vision and execution
Only nitpick is the backside of the child being a tad too dark...besides that nice control of light!
Funny you say that man as I've just recently started to change the way I think about the images I want to make. Beautiful images are fairly easy, and call me slow, but I'm now starting to think it's a bit of a cop out.
I'd like to start doing dark, moody and gritty stuff which I think will be a lot more challenging creatively. Anyway we'll see what happens over the next few months as it might end up in the too hard basket.
Thanks for asking....2nd place out of 95. Happened to come up against a pretty good image from a guy in the US but still pretty happy.
Leave the floorboards alone dude...it's like a signature now.
Yeah setup was a single light high on camera right. Had to get a slightly larger light spot on the floor to cover the dolls so used a gridded beauty dish, (without diffuser). The RAW file looked much worse than I expected so had to do a fair bit of selective shadow recovery with my new favorite tool, Viveza. I would've like to recovered a bit more detail from the back of head and back but there's only so much you can do in post.
All in all though it's been a pretty good last few weeks in the comps for me. The highlight was getting one through to the finals of Moran Portrait Prize...and I didn't even need to use the floorboards for that one.
