    I've got a massive backlog of post processing to get through at the moment while I've been working on a particular project.
    Managed to take a break last night and had a quick flick through some images I'd taken while on holidays in Perth last September.

    I'd written them off as awful because the shooting conditions weren't the best - way after sunset on a cloudy day... and handheld :(
    But when I stumbled across this I was reminded of my favourite model - Christina. :)
    She's exceptionally camera shy, but I seem to get my best photos of her while she's unaware or least expecting it. :thumbup:

    And a quick compile of some previous sohts. Some have been up here before, some haven't.

    #2 - Afternoon Delight

    #3 - Cold Kisses

    #4 - Down Time

    C&C most welcome, of course.

    is it raining or snowing in #2 & #3

    I like them
    #1 is nice you have most of the face in focus.
    really like #2, would be much bettera if its snow not rain
    #3 her hands look a little strange, as if they are missing, nothing you can do i guess
    her pose in #4 looks strange to me, almost forced

    Yep that's snow in #2 and #3 :)

    Only pp I've done to them has pretty much been global (saturation, contrast etc) so I imagine they could probably benefit from more local touchups.

    Ultimately though, they were all taken handheld, impromptu and of a non-model :p
    Figured I'd be betraying the nature of the image if I went too nuts with the PP :thumbup:

    Here is one heavily (and quite poorly) post processed for sh!ts and giggles!

    Was trying for advertisment type fake pp at the time

    I love Number 1!!

    Not from a 'model' perspective, but from a real portrait perspective. But then i'm a fan of sharp eyes, and a very short DOF ;)

    Nice shots. #1 makes her look like Trinity from The Matrix.
