Description

Model: Laura :hug: :heart:
Her hair isn't red, that's just the way it came out in this photo :confused: :O_o: and that's just the way sometimes I see her.


I've been wanting to post this for a long time. I didn't make a normal portrait since I really don't know when. At the time it was taken, this photo was forgotten in my little collection.

Something interesting I found on the Web about this color:
Nature of Red: A stimulant, red is the hottest of the warm colors. Studies show that red can have a physical effect, increasing the rate of respiration and raising blood pressure.
Culture of Red:Red is power! Red is also used as a symbol of courage and sacrifice, as in blood spilt in sacrifice or courage in the face of lethal danger.

The further I went back in your gallery the less surreal pictures Iīve been seeing from you, they were mostly quite gracious pictures of nature and anrchitacture. This one is the exception among them - I donīt understand photography, but I think this picture was taken with some settings fixed to make it turn out like this. Still, she was a gracious model. Very nice!

Wonderful capture. I think the information you added about red even gives a little bit more perspective.

Kudos on this one :D

De obicei nu imi atrag atentia portrete si nici nu imi plac foarte mult, dar vazindu-l pe acesta m-a frapat caldura, violenta aproape, a luminii si ruginiul parului cu inflexiuni de castaniu care pare a fi la o prima privire un fundal pe care se profileaza portretul fetei, aceasta iesind in evidenta prin nuanta deosebita, dar defapt acesta face parte chiar din portretul insusi. Probabil ca nuantele luminii in combinatie cu nuantele elementelor din imagine si incadrarea foarte curajoasa ii dau un aer aparte, fundalul clasic fiind aproape absent.
PS: te admir ca lucrezi pe film in timpul asta acaparat de digital si biti. Eu am lucrat pe digital pina acum si am dat destul de multi bani pe aparate si vreau sa spun ca sint foarte dezamagit de performantele lor din pct de vedere al calitatii imaginii si a nuantelor.E adevarat ca e bine sa inveti si sa experimentezi pe asa ceva dar mai mult nu sint de parere ca se poate. Am si eu un praktica mtl 5b cu destul de multe obiective si am inceput sa-l folosesc intensiv in ultimul timp, dar nu am developat pina acum filmele:D. Niciodata nu o sa reuseasca un procesor sa vada atitea nuante cite se imprima pe o pelicula. aaaa si bv ca nu stii photoshop nici sa nu inveti ptr ca dupa aia o sa devii dependent de editari si ce obtii nu se mai poate numi foto(lumina)-grafie(desen). Poate doar imagine digitala. Si... SCUUZEEEE multe ptr commentu asta atit de lung:D :D[link]

wow, mulţumesc frumos pentru toate aprecierile. :)

eu când a fost vorba de foto m-am jucat mai mult, am zis să nu iau lucrurile prea în serios pentru că după s-ar putea să pierd plăcerea de a mai face poze. şi am tot felul de încercări curajoase... :giggle:

cât despre digital vs. film, am văzut că stilul meu s-a schimbat mult de când am fost obligat sa lucrez pe film. sunt mai calculat şi mai îngrijit :)

iar faza cu PS-ul, este vorba şi de lene din partea mea, dar mai ales din ideea că prefer naturalul oricând.


eu îţi mulţumesc încă o dată pentru comment. :manhug:
