As soft as ice by lorrainemd As soft as ice by lorrainemd
A high key type shot of the captivating stare of Erika, the beautiful singer and friend. Taken a bit before [link] as an exercise in contrasting moods/makeup.

Shot with a ring flash and silver reflector.
Yay for tight portraiture!

Beautiful shot....it's so well thought out and soft. I just love it!
The thing I love the most is the contrast of your friend (Erika's) features. That way, you're definatly paying attention to her...and nothing else. No distractions. The contrast also seems to give the subject a lot more depth....as if she's an actual person...there's life to her ;)
Anyway, definate fav

This is such a nice shot... she looks eerily like my little sister. Despite the fact that she is 13 years old.. i can see this face in her future.

The contrast is brilliant.

Yay for sure :w00t:.
This shot is interesting.
The colors of the eyeliner and eyebrow liner contrast so greatly with her face and the rest of the portrait that they nearly jump out. Composition superb.

What was the position of the silver reflector?

The lips really make the picture for me. So soft. The picture exudes softness.
She is drowning in an ocean of feathers!
But she neutral about it.
She wont miss us
:P
I really enjoy this!
p.s. Love the new icon:D
