[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here's Another pose of Cindy this time since she's back lighted we placed the flash gun to her left 45 degrees, then have the gold reflector close to her so we could get more fill light to her face avoiding shadow cast.

Smart blur, USM for the eyes, vignetting, burn & dodging of the eyes, saturation, Crop for TL.

PS: Rew can you please teach me how to crop for TL but still retaining the sharpness of the image? because after my PP i have difficulty of cropping the image for TL sometimes after cropping pp work and sharpness of image is lost. Thanks in advance.

Bonjour Allan.
C’est toujours un plaisir de voir sur une image avec un beau sourire.
Le modèle est bien mis en valeur par une bonne exposition et un bon cadrage.
Bonne journée.

Hi Allan,

Great portrait of this smiling beauty!
She has very charming and friendly impressions. I like the way she is boldly facing the camera. The flower enhances her beauty. The colors in the picture are perfectly shown.

Very well done, my friend.

best wishes,

Hi Allan

Hi Allan,

Perfection! Nice lighting, composition, and pose! Just brilliant this time and thanks for the very useful notes/description. This is your best work so far and I would give you ten smileys if I could! Well done!



Bello retrato y modelo en el que se capta una sonrisa y expresion muy agradable
Buen trabajo
un saludo

Parang si Rosalinda ng telenovela...especially with the white tubular flower on her ear. Your pp work has resulted in an image that is soft, sweet, and sharp at the same time. A mighty fine portrait, one of your best to date. Ingat Allan.

P.S. I saw many heartbreaking videos of the Pepeng aftermath in your province. Hope there was not much damage to you and family.
