Ndali #1

Just before I left for my work in Italy I did a shoot with Ndali and Bunmi who was the make up artist and also the shoot director. This was an experimental concept I was playing around with similar to one I did of Tosin sometime ago. I've seen this image smaller and I think it looks so much better!

So much better smaller or bigger? She's lovely

Very little grain here. Good work on exposure. Other aspects of the shot are not as promising though....

Nice photo. She's beautiful. Pic will look bangin' on a big billboard advertising lip gloss
Beautiful eyes, beautiful lips, beautiful woman, it hits me in that order. The only thing that does not sit right with me is the texture of the nose - the naturalness of the skin everywhere else is great, it's just the nearest point to the camera I guess. Would it benefit from a little of MaxBlack's portrait technique just on that nose area? Don't know I could be wrong. Love the composition.
