In all honesty, I love the feeling I get when I see this! I'm a huge fan of the renaisance era which is what this reminds me of. Everything in this scene is perfect, from the superb expression and body language to the amazing exposure and color! The eyes and lips are amazing and, I believe, are the dominant factor to making this image work as well as it does!
"All out amazing model and photograph that spills, over the viewer, a sense of an era in which we dwell in no more!" -JCN Productions
When I first saw this i knew I wanted to express the way it made me feel.
There is an overall softness to this photograph that compliments the coloring of the set. Usually white is seen as bland due to the fact that is is the abscence of color. In this case it works the focus toward the models face. It also allows the color in the accenting pieces such as the ornaments to really pop.
The model is a beautiful woman who's skin tone really fits the picture and set up. I also like the way her hair creates a sense of chaos against her flawless skin.I think the highlights in her hair help this. The darkness of it compliments the rest of the pic as I said earlier to draw your eyes in to the center.
The only problem I have with this is the way the ornament in the foreground is blurry against an otherwise crisp photograph.
It is a rare thing to have a set and model work in such harmony as in most cases one over powers the other. I look forward to more from this artist in the future as i will be adding them to my Devwatch. Bravo Budior.
