Is that a guy in the background? Just curious what he adds to the story of the photo? With him centered in that very lit area, and knowing your attention to detail, I assume he is intentionally there. Just not sure what he adds to the story.

Totally accidental :-)

Well done! Not a reader and not into fashion but I like this as a magazine cover. In a different venue I would comment on the blue cast, but with your experience I'm assuming it was on purpose; it does catch the eye. I also like the figure in the background, it adds mystery and content... Mike

I like the color contrast as well as the sense of depth you convey

BTW, how are models classified as 'top' or otherwise ?

I love the blue/red color combo in the first. Red is such a potent color but it seems nicely balanced here with the surrounding blues. Love the pose and the clarity of your subject. Her outfit is presented with pop and prominence as befitting a fashion shot. Also, love the styling of her hair. Might be severe on another model but looks great while revealing her beautiful face. Nice balance of shadows and brights on her face and throughout.

Quibbles: I don't care for the fellow on first and second viewings. Being silhouetted and with a blue fringe, he draws my attention from your model. His proximity to her bothers me--feels like a dark, skulking figure--and he alters the mood in a nourish direction. Too much impact. Clone him and see if you like that more. I know it already published. Just for kicks.

I also think her earrings might be better completely vertical allowing more even spacing from her head and neck.

Sensational overall.

The second pic I like a little less primarily because the red of her lipstick is too prominent for me in this image. Reminds me of a Rolling Stones cover. Her outfit looks tremendous again. You are definitely doing a great job highlighting these outfits. I would buy them even though they might not work so well with me. Red is my color, though. As the image is presented here, there is moire in her white top. Probably an artifact of the website uploading. I also find the blue cast and noise of her stomach to be slightly disconcerting.

I do like her defocused gaze. Wonderfully frame filling. Great colors again (other than her lips--for me). Her vivid lips are probably a classic portrait choice so my feelings may only be mine. As they usually are.

Thanks so much for sharing these! I do think they are both terrific despite my nits.

The video is terrific. The man walking through the image creates a more satisfying effect for me. More decidedly nourish and spooky. Fantastic set of images. Like the variety of outfits and color processing choices.

maybe you can shoot some very natural looking shots of her with no to minimal makeup on - perhaps not salable in the current fashion mileu now, but we all know things will change (or she may just want to have some for her own use)

But it does work since it echoes the main figure.

The theme for this was "RED"...

I think he is saying that he would like it if you somehow took a few less elaborate shots just for your own personal portfolio or hers and could share those. Perhaps as an artist does sketches of a subject as well as full blown paintings. Or maybe as part of a before and after sort of set. I imagine your time is worth a great deal and you may not have even a desire to do this. But the poster can dream. I think just about anyone would like to see more images of her and what you could do unconstrained by the specific criteria of your shoot. That, of course, could lead to an infinite number of shots thus impossible to process or even store.

This is NOT a test for a model portfolio. This was a commissioned shoot for ELLE magazine based on the collections that were shown this season and a theme developed as a result of those collections;

I wonder if she uses one of those lips enlargers. Looks like it. My girlfriend has one and loves it.I would have cropped the last one higher to just below her breasts. Congratulations on having your image featured.

The pics have almost a film feel to them. Where they shot at high-ISO?
