I hope no one is tired of seeing Anna yet. She is such a pleasure to work with and I always love the work we do together. We've been working on various types of shots for her portfolio to show diversity and a selection of 'looks'.

For this shoot we did many full length (which I have not processed yet) and a variety of tight shots. Once again, I chose the 105mm f/2.5 AI-S for the tight shots and I'm very pleased with the results.

The first one is more of a playful shot than anything else but we both agreed it was fun and worth processing. The second is something we worked on to get the pose and feel right.

I did a low contrast black and white conversion that I really like. I've wanted to use this effect but up until now I hadn't really found the right image. I think I finally did.

I hope you enjoy viewing these images as much as I loved creating them.

nice shots
pretty lady
the 2nd one is my favorite, because image #1 isn't pleasing to her gum line and teeth (upper left side)

the second image is very reminiscent of sheryl crow
very nicely done

Agreed Greg. As I said, the first one was just for fun but we liked it. Anna has some interesting facial characteristics and it's a bit tough to get her smile just right sometimes.

The second is my favorite as well. Thank you.

Robert,

The first is a "killer" shot in my eyes. I'm trying to dig the second. But the first says it all for me.

Thanks Tony.

I think the effect in the second shot is something you either get or you don't. I don't think it's going to be everyone's cup of tea but I love taking chances and exploring outside the box.

Love #2 except for the flecks of white light bleeding through her hair on the left side.
Really nice look.:smile:

Thanks man.

Funny you should mention that Tim. The color image doesn't show the white like that. The change in contrast seem to have revealed that. Tomorrow (once I've gotten some sleep) I'll go back in and make an adjustment layer to fix that.

No! Not sick of Anna at all. I really like both of these. I think I've read most/all of your Anna threads and I think these are your best shots of her yet - the posing/composition really plays to her strengths. Also really like the way the low contrast B/W draws your attention to her eyes and hair. Works for me!

I think she's going to have two excellent images to add to her portfolio. Great job, Robert :smile:

Thank you Brian.

Hey Tim,

Thanks for that. Anna loves the black and white.

I probably should not have called it a low contrast black and white. I've had a few people comment that it was not low contrast and technically they are correct. I titled it based on the Lightroom preset I was working with, which was called Low Contrast B&W. On the other hand, you should see it when I increase contrast. By comparison my conversion would be considered low in contrast :biggrin:
