I find that black-and-white photography works best for shooting models. It allows the eyes to focus on the lighting, the shadows.
When I first took this shot, I looked at the screen on the back of my camera. It's really small: maybe 1.5" by 2". And with my poor vision, it's not the best way for me to judge the quality of a photo. But when I saw this shot, I knew it was good.
I showed it to the model, who let out a "wow." Which made all the other photographers want to look. And I won a chorus of wows.
When I looked at it on my 19" laptop monitor, I liked it a lot more. But it needed a little touch up. And it needed black and white.
What to you think?
