Daily Deviation

Unfortunately... I don't like this one very much. I hate to say that, too, because I normally LOVE your work, and your photos are an inspiration to me.

It's not your fault, though. I think the posing and lighting, along with the camera being too close, really bring this shot down.

The lighting is too bright and too harsh. Your skin is blown out in the highlights to pure white. Your gorgeous, gorgeous hair, which in all your other pictures is a lovely, deep, rich shade of black, looks pale and washed out here.

I think the camera is a little too close to your head, which makes your forehead look a little big. It creates a foreshortening that makes your head look very big relative to your body. It also means your expression just looks uncomfortable.

I hate to be so critical, since, as I've said, I love your pictures and always look forward to your submissions. Unfortunately, the photographer just didn't do you justic.

It's not hard to love your work. You're gorgeous, photograph well and you could be knee-deep in garbage and I'd love it. This one? Well, the title gives it away. Ruby. It's supposed to be red. Everything in the shot conspires to show your pale skin against the red highlights: the flower in your hair, your lips, the fur, your delicious fingernails, even the red trim on your bodice.

Also, I love the way you are looking up at the camera. It shows that you are hiding something. The sense of intrigue I get from this shot is overwhelming.

I'd say this was a triumph, but it would simply be the latest in a long string of them.

Congratulations.

This is one of my favorites of you.

9 out of 10.

Well done.

i disagree with the comments in the critique. i think the overexposded skin color and harsh light are indicative of the hard lifestyle the "character" in the picture is living.
