[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe
a follow-up from yesterday's post.

jung-min showed me a range of emotions only a professional model can. it was fun shooting her. i really appreciate her putting on a white make-up, red lipstick and that heavy "yukata".

and my big thanks to sally for setting up the props. i have an outstanding art student as an assistant. she also did jung min's make-up.

tet, Brian trouve(nt) cette note utile

Fantastic ! So sharp, brillian colours ! Indescribeable.


Superbe ce portrait. Le model est tres joli et le décor tres sympathique.
Juste peut-etre dommage pour cette main un peu flou et ce doigt un peu surexposé. Sinon c'est du tout bon!

Another nice poster Manny! Framing the photo with scarves is done in a great manner, and the mood that created that light coming through them is wonderful. Great work, congratulations! I love this new, not so close-up approach to portraits, hope it's came with new equipment ;)

P.S. Of course, your approact to faces (eyes) are written so many times by me and others so there's no need to repeat myself :)

You are my idol, Manny!!!! Another wonderful portrait. Yes, the professional model can give you a range of emotions but it's also your incredible talent in which you capture that emotion.
Keep up your amazing work!!

(sorry out of points)

Hello Manuel.
This is a masterpiece!Wonderful light and composition.I also like the colours,the perfect sharpness,the attention to details.Great emotions!Ver very nice shot...a favourite to me too!
Regards and merry Xmas... Francesco

How can you get something so sharp and yet so delicate? It is hard to tear oneself away from those eyes.

a really beautiful face , nice colors , may i ask you something , did you use an reflector , i saw the reflection in here eyes ! main light came from the right ?

Hey that's great! She's very nice! The skin look so soft! What is the reflection in her eyes... I never saw a curve white shade near the iris. At first second my mind suggest a circular flash but i would be surprise that's it...
The attitude is nice too! Excellent portrait!

Interesting composition. She seems to be stunned by something. Clear and clean nice colors.
Well done!
