:heart: What were you saying making portraits...not on my tastes
Say that thing with law key again and I spam you! :love:
I really love this. So serene her face and you have captured these gazing eyes! :rose:

:) :) :) actually, as i confessed afterwards, when making images with her, i went improvising different lightings and renderings that her lovely face inspired me instead of my old low key lighting habit (but there will probably be one or two coming soon and some really low key bodyscapes will follow soon :))
for this one, i wanted to do something a little like old cinema stars pictures and she did really great when starring at me with here incredible eyes...

Wrote an entire comment and my Internet thought is time to screw my joy for some moments. I will try to re-write it:
Old cinema, has something from the old cinema style, but not so much. Is rather modern. When I first saw it I immediately thought of "this happened yesterday". Not sure why, but, usually, with old cinema photos, one has this impression of oldish times. Your model is too present, too "here" to consider , in this particular shoot, she lived sometime ago. Maybe because of her very white skin (white here I mean), maybe because of her very modern make up....

:lol: I´´ve even wrote some new things, I didn´´t captured well in my former comment! :D

she is also pretty younger than those cinema stars :D
but i had in mind some portraits with that kind o light (g.garbo for example), dark environment and bright and soft light on a pale skin (she really has a white skin, kind of a gift for a photographer to light up, even for a dark rendering, you'll see :))
and of course, i do like the little anachronism between the old lighting style and her make up/piercing
she told me that she was ok to shoot without it (and, of course, not a big deal to retouch if i had wanted too...) but no, i think this little detail tickles the eyes and i like that :)
something that is also different, in the old days they used a lot of lights and it was very obvious on the images, i only use one (there is only one sun...) or two (for backlighting) depending on the image and the situation, here, only one :) so, once more, you're right, old inspiration but rather modern result :D
