Disappearing act

This is one of the shots from last Friday and, once again, I've used a technique to which various body parts - ears in particular - have fallen victim.

Aurore's lugs are covered, so you'll never know. The whole high-contrast thing seems a bit of a cop-out, but the model loves it. (It's also worth pointing out that prints show more of the skin tone than backlit screens, which is why I chose grey as the overall colour here).

I'm on assignment for a couple of days and won't be looking at a website till the weekend.

Great picture. I think there's too much emphasis put on being "technically" correct. If you like it, it's good - [i]and I like it![/i]

I think the high contrast doesn't work very well. There is no expression on her left side because the light is so hard. But I like her hair. :-)

Really striking... I'm a big fan of really high contrast, I think this works here!

Beautiful, but I'm also not sure how I feel about the whole high-contrast thing.
Have fun on your assignment.
