I was waiting for a headshot from you. This week's contest just plays into your strengths, even if you were trying a strobist lighting setup (instead of your warehouse natural light) for the first time / one of the first times.

+1 on not chopping the head off or chopping more off. Looks unbalanced in its current state

Bev, I like the high key effect and I like the composition - that way the eyes are dominating the portrait which I guess you want to amphasize considering that she is a make-up artist.

I bet she will like the pic. My impression: a tough cookie

Best, Bee

Hi Bev,

Another gorgeous portrait. I really like this crop, but the image was top-notch no matter what. It is hard for me to believe you were nervous. Your very substantial talents just shine forth in this image and every week.

Happy Holidays,

Steve S.

A big collective thank you to everyone. Am really flattered by all the nice comments.

Andrew--thanks, yes this was my first time trying a high key portrait. With a client sitting there assuming you know what you're doing it is pretty intense. Reading up on it helped, but luck never hurts either. lol

Bee: thanks! Yes, she's a tough cookie. She didn't want to smile for her portrait! She didn't want to look "too friendly" I guess because she's a tough trainer and wants respect and to be taken seriously, too.

Steve S.: Oh gosh, what nice things you say. You're my new best friend. :-) Happy Holidays!

Here's another shot of her from our shoot She wanted some fitness shots for her web site and promo. She's doing a squat exercise here. She's very muscular and tan! She's got that "take no prisoners" look that tells you what a great trainer she is.

I think she looks rather peculiar, Bev, but your massive photographic skill and talent have probably helped her look far more attractive than she might otherwise be. Excellent shot and I love the cropping!

Merry Christmas!

Fond regards,

Endre

She makes me think of an "Ice Queen". Very beautiful and very remote. Personally I don't like this attitude but as this was the effect she wanted to create, she - and you - definitely succeeded.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.
