This is certainly a very nicely done black and white portrait composition. I really like the natural expressions on Caroline and a lovely smile. The black background really goes well with this black and white composition and this shot is a nice example to show how well the rule of thirds work in portraits.
I am just a beginner and am learning ... I have done a portrait debut my self recently and would love your input.
Have a look -->
once again - great work Roger!
VERY nice, Roger!
Great pose, excellent sharpness and detail, really natural and relaxed, GREAT light and it's looks wonderful in B&W. That is just outstanding! Many thanks and kindest wishes,
This lens with focal length and 1.2 is really bright .....
and Caroline is really beautiful in B & W and also the color .. great work Roger!
Stunning B&W shot of Caroline, great focus on the subject and nicely positioned in frame. Good use of the diffused lighting coming in and the black curtain worked well for you. Cheers
a nice smile from your model. she is quite beautiful. nice b/w pic. dof is quite good here.
una belleza de sonrisa te felicito buen trabajo
ottimo bel bianco e nero
What a natural beauty!
This young woman irradiates health and "joie de vivre"!
Excellent conversion as usual. I like the effect of light on her hair. Very beautiful!
so very good shot. Bigger aperture really makes wonder on portrait shoot. Nice use of soft light. The model is so pretty.
I like the way you used the absolute most of the allowable dimensions of a shot, here - this seems bigger than the average TL pic and the added impact of that is most welcome.
She has such a natural and charming smile and you've captured it well. The available light was certainly very nice - if anything, I might have turned her a tiny bit to her left, so that the highlight fell on her hair but not her nose and chin, thus keeping the same diffuse light on her lower face that we see on her eyes.
Great off-centre placement, beautifully simple and pure background, and perfect management of the shallow field of focus.
Once again, mastery of the art!
Hi, Roger -
Another great portrait of Caroline - she is really very photogenic. Where do you find these beautiful and interesting subjects? The black background provides a great contrast to her light hair and complexion. The details are nice and sharp throughout. Natural and appealing smile. Nice one!
This one is very nice, I like the black background. Good lighting and detail, and once again a beautiful smile. TFS
Perfectly exposed highlights, in the woman's long hair,with excellent dof, sharpness & tonal range. Have a great weekend!
Just a wonderful image. I cannot find anything about the image that I do not like. Most Excellent
how are you friend?
interesting post and a good conversion
you have used the light innovatively and perfectly. like the pose, her smile and the treatment, good idea of using a dark bg to provide nice depth of field
thanks for sharing
Beautiful shot at Caroline. Beautiful gray tone from this b+w shot. Fine framing and TFS.
I love the off-center placement, as well as the balance--and frame fill--of her cocked right arm, really adds quite a nice feel to the.
The natural light enhances what seems to be a very natural smile and the B&W composition works well.
Very nicely done,
