8x10 Portrait

Post by Chong » Sat Aug 19, 2006 6:57 am Etc/GMT-1+01:00

This was taken on 8x10 and the lens used was 355mm F9 Schneider G-Claron. If I remembered well, a green filter was used to render the skin somewhat porcelain liked.


One studio flash head was used and this was positioned at perpendicular to the model. The light was soften by a shoot through umbrella. Film used was Classic Iso 200 (an eastern European made).

Please comment. Thanks.

The expression on her face is nice I like it but I would have lifted out her other eye too! I think when you do portrait specially eye contact both eyes should be there! It’s very important! Also the shadows on the background take away a lot's of attention from from her. The green filters effect somehow disappears with use of flashlight! The green filter works on picture with lots of natural light on the skin!
