Martin Strauss's picture

Claire-Louisa P.

I shot this using only the light from the small window to her left
i wish the dressed would not be as messy as it was

i carefully placed her bright faceside against the dark background and the darker part against the brighter window in the right bg.
i think it gives her a god separation...
nowadays i would may retouch it a bit more natural

The dress looks fine to me and I'm usually very fussy when it comes to dresses. :) It's a great shot. The lighting and colours are terrific. The only thing that bothers me is the mat on the ground.

thx mate. i may could have removed the light part of the mat ... but yes. it's nearly perfect ;)

awesome gallery Martin! :)

thx Cris!!!

I love this shot. I love the broad lighting which reflects the triangle under the model's eye. I love the way the model's hair is draped over the shoulder. In my opinion, the hand placement could have been positioned slightly. The dress is excellent. Thank you for sharing this image.
