Fela #1

For something more conceptual, experimental and abstract. This is a side profile of Fela. I haven't done something like this for a while.

What do you think?

Jide Alakija: Thanks Abi.
I like it but I think I would like it a lot more without the sunglasses.

hmmph, I'm not sure about abstract....and I agree with comment #2, I'm not sure about the sunglasses
Jide Alakija: Okay I'll try a different slant next time. Hopefully you'll see it tomorrow.

I like the photo, but I'm not too keen on the wallpaper
Jide Alakija: Thanks Oli.
Like the burnished effect the photo has. Not crazy about the sunglasses either.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Fehinti.

This is fresh! I love it all... the wallpaper... the sunglasses... the colour and tone... fela's profile... her hair!

Very Retro... 10 out of 10 from me!
Jide Alakija: Thanks man....long time!
very cool, liking that red light graduating across her face...
Jide Alakija: Thanks Sam.
I think it is cool, including the sunglasses, like the reflection of the reflector in the sunglasses less, just noticed that we probably have the same reflector!!
Jide Alakija: LOL...really? That's interesting...but it was a cheap one from God knows where in the east, so I guess it's probably sold worldwide as a result.

You get a well deserved "I LIKEY" from the Subster, you captured a perfect retro look of this model, Awesome lighting, great DOF and impressive framing


Wish I had the "wallpaper" for my shoots :d
Jide Alakija: You're in a good mood today that's why you like it!
