Shes’s really lovely and so is your lighting.

I kerp thinking that the exciting part was the beautiful new camera model, the R5!

But the girl knocks that idea off the table!

She is obviously where the beauty is!

Thanks for sharing!

Great shots and a very beautiful model. There's not much you could have done any better.
Just one little comment when you're shooting from "Down below". You should "Black out" the Hair in the Nose using Photoshop.
While it's perfectly natural, it just doesn't look that appealing.

Never mind photoshop, just don’t shoot up women's noses. Simple as that.

James,

You don’t mean that! I wouldn’t want to be so limited. But if that works, great. I never realized it was a problem. I have no issue with healing away s few black hairs or a pimple!

Why not?

If the pose is great, isn’t it worth it?

I recognize you do a lot of portraits yourself. So are you saying such angles, (in your experience or else), are generally accepted as unflattering, like a pole coming out of ones head?

Yes Asher that is exactly what I am saying.

Hi, Will,

Perhaps next time you could have your stylist put a little plumber's putty in each nostril to avoid this "problem".

I agree that having nostrils with hair might be off putting.

But in an weathered elderly man, smoking a pipe, nose hairs might perfectly fit the overall texture!

But what about a beautiful woman?

Well, James, if the woman has a child or dog by the fireplace and you have them look up at you, nostrils will appear.

I would just edit out any hairs that were distracting!

My personal feeling is that there is no need to shy away from shooting from a lower angle and having the darkness of the inside of the nose showing. It would be boring with everyones head positioned the same way.

As for contents of the inside of the nose, It would just be something I would watch for when shooting and adjust for. The only way to really tell would be by viewing on the screen after taking the photo - especially when using flash. The more natural light shot, may require an adjustment in head position, so that the inside of the nose isn’t so light. I too find it a little distracting to see the hairs in those couple of shots, so probably would resort to retouching them out. But as James mentions, always best to anticipate these things before shooting - - - as in poles or trees coming out of heads that I see in peoples photos all the time LOL.

Will, James and Robert,

There’s a “cost” we pay in breaking basic rules. We risk degrading our work, so there better be some payoff for the photographer!

Even poles coming out of the head CAN be done on purpose, if it works for the photographer’s design.

My rule is not to “NOT break such rules”, but rather to ONLY do so by conscious design!

For my own tastes I would have used full body poses and cropped my head shots, and others from those.
