Great shot, but why did you choose to leave the fly away hairs on the face?

I chose to leave it because it's a natural portrait, in beauty shot i would have fixed it in photoshop but not for this one

ok. just found it a little distracting. But, still a great shot

Thank you for keeping the fly-away hairs. It keeps it "real". She's beautiful and so is the portrait!!

"It keeps it "real"."
was there any retouching done?
No,no more or less real than any other portrait. it's just personal preference...and it looks great.


Wonderful portrait! Congrats on being selected for Photo of the Day!

By the way, is it just me, or does her facial structure very closely resemble that of Gemma Arterton?

Thank you Tom! I didn't know Gemma Arterton but (thanks Wikipedia) yes, their faces are close, noses are differents but eyes & mouth are similar

To me, they look alike from this one particular angle. But you know how it is, take a photo from a slightly different angle and they may look completely different from one another.

Beautiful shot and portfolio!

Marie is a stunning model. Your shots of her is unbelievable. Just post more photo of her please and less photoshop I believe. If the lighting and speed is correct, the photos don’t need retouching. Great job

Hey stephane,

I write on Medium.
We use unsplash and pexel for cover photos.

I adored your shots, can I use them? Medium requires us to credit the photographer. Doing so can also let people see your work also.

Would love to let more people know about your works though my blogs.

Please let me know. Waiting for your reply.
