Michael H. Cothran November 16, 2004

Great post-shooting work, and great lighting for this technique (although the hairlight seems to be a little different in each one).
My only critique is that the color balance in all four images does not seem to match. #916831

I may be a minority of one here, but while this photo is technically well done, I find the portrait itself a little creepy looking. In a dimly lit room it could be downright scary. So the question becomes, is it really BP that sucks? #2787758

Peter Hundley May 20, 2006

Now that you Mention it, "W", I think you're right. The expressions are a bit.... intense. #2789808
