I like this shot a lot, love the lighting. I don't think smoothing will help the skin without turning it plastic. Pores are a bit deep here. I'd leave it as it is. I really like this!
Thanks! This is the case... I actually did do a bit of skin smoothing, but like you mention, her pores are deep and noticable. I hate the plasticky look, so I stopped here.
I do like the composition and the model is certainly very pretty. I like the hint of a smile on her face combined with the seemingly accidental exposure of the shoulder. Very tasteful and interesting.
The skin texture has been mentioned before - I would like to suggest that the makeup for this particular lighting might be less than ideal. On my monitor the face appears more reddish whereas the shoulder is nicely bronze / golden. In this framing I feel that it urges the viewer to compare the different display of the skin.
Thank you. The note on the color of her makeup is a great one. something to keep in mind for the next session, and maybe something I can revisit on this edit.
I appreciate all of the comments!
