Idu again

One for my archive of antique black and white filmlike shots. This one I did sometime ago whilst on a break from work but never really was happy with the final image. As you can see it's done on the same day as this image and this image.

Been checking out your website since our conversation at HTB Cafe, I am impressed. Keep up the good work and I'll be in touch.

Both this and the 17 Dec shot appeal to me more than than 8 December 'strange' pose shot. 17 December wins overall in my view.

This one is just a little too noisy for me - so much so that Idu looks like she needs a shave on her left jaw line, so I don't think it would be one she'd like to display prominently.

well done here, Jide, I find most of the time the models like these stylized renderings of themselves, didn't you just ask me again about the ringlight, I thought I gave you all that info
this type of provcessing works well on all kinds of portraits...very nicely done...
i like the composition.

Too much distortion. Since you shot at 50mm you must have had the cam in her face. Grain effect also doesn't mix well with the smoothing PP.
