    I've known this girl for a long time, and ever since she saw Sarah's pics (the persian girl I shot a while back), she wanted to do some pics. So when I was in Austin last, I went and did a quick 20 min shoot. This is the only pic I'll post, because I gave her the rest and probably won't host/post them. :o

    let me know what you guys think. B&W wasn't working out on her for some reason... so Sepia it had to be. Brought out her eyes a lot better IMO.

    it's great for kids, but not as much of a fan on adults. I always expose the highlights a little hot, it gives the shot more depth, IMO, but not quite this far.

    Girth.. pull the highlights back just a tad and I think it'll be a much more pleasing image.

    I haven't done a lot of people pictures so what I about to say may not count. I read that for a good portrait you should try and have most of the face in focus and the beginning ears begin where it becomes out of focus. Correct me if I am wrong.

    it's a "rule" but it's subjective.

    i can't understand why anyone would present pictures of a woman without doing some basic post processing to remove glaring blemishes.

    Im my mind's eye, I want to believe she's prettier than as presented in this pic.

    And probably, she wants to believe that too.

    yes, absolutely. women don't get their pictures taken so they can see their chin pimple at 1200×798 resolution. It takes 2 seconds to clone it out. My philosophy. I never show pictures of women without getting rid of pimples. I wouldn't want to see them on my own pictures and no one has ever complained to me about looking better or having better skin.
