                                                                                                          Fallen Angel

Another shot from a shoot I did last week in Portishead Wood (or is it Forest) in Bristol. This was a very difficult shoot, but it's always lovely when you have a model working with you who is willing to go the extra mile.

So there we are climbing our way up into the woods, it's foggy, damp, wet and extremely cold, I have Helen a little higher than I am, me already lay flat on the floor (yuck and I made the mistake of wearing a whitish top) and then I go, "oh lovely dress, how about you lay on all the muddy dampy leaves and given us a pose?" Well if I was the model I would have gone like "you what???, are you mad? Lie on that with one of my best dresses? Hell NO"..... But thank God I was not the model and she was all game.   

I knew the type of look I was trying to achieve when taking the shot, a little bit of PP magic to achieve the final result and presto.

The model skin was quite pale and white, for me this offered me an opportunity to achieve some images I would not normally get with the always superbly tanned models :) Hope you guys like the final result.

Anyone looking for the services of Suby as a Photographer, you know what to do..... (email me in case some are wondering what. LOL)

Now why didn't you have the whole of her in teh shot?????? Not good Suby not good. I didn't know you were in the business of amputation.
Suby & Sinem: Very simple explanation to that bro, had my 50mm lens in, was practically hanging on the edge of a gully to take this while lying on the floor, any further back and it would have been the hospital for me smile However, I did manage to take some shots with the whole body in frame, and you know how it is, this one worked the best as with the connection with the camera, and body angles where sublime grin

hey suby,

i love this shot. the perspective and dof are perfect. i love the desaturated feel to this shot. the model's expression matches the mood perfectly. i also love the gentle glow of her skin, particularly when contrasted against the black dress. wish that you had gotten her other foot in the shot, but i don't think that its such a huge loss, especially b/c the viewer's eyes are drawn immediately to her face.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Nicole, glad you like.

Hee hee Subster, I get where Jide is coming from but I must admit that was not my first impression! I was drawn to the fairy tail style processing of the image. Mal
Suby & Sinem: LOL, thanks Mal
The skin tones here is very unique and non coventional...it works for this shot.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks for the comment Dotun,

Very nice contrast, clean pale model in the dirty dark mud. I like what you've done with this shot. Frenchay hospital wouldn't have been too far smile
Suby & Sinem: Thanks E, so you would have wanted to see me in the hospital? sad LOL Me like my neck too much tongue

Hey Suby,
The dof transition in fron part of the picture (leaf area) is looking little bit hard. Contrast on the model's skin can be softer; she is loking like a death. Branches looking behind of the model are very nice. At the end, position of the legs and dress is looking well! smile
Lovely shot Suby like a shot in a movie or an album cover. Very professional result smile
Very good work. the DOF is just perfect. I also love the contrast in the model's skin tones and her environment, you really made her look other-worldly with your PP (which explains the title). While there picture may have been better with her foot in it, i have to say this was well executed - i'm really impressed cos, IMHO, this really isn't your style but you still pulled it off like a pro.

One of my favorites from the glamour shots you've been sharing with us. I do like your title as well, Suby.

Do these models get a copy of the best images for their portfolios? This would have to be one of her favorites as well, I would imagine.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Micki, yes I do give all the models I work with a copy of the images. It is actually one of her favourites smile Thanks for stopping by.

interesting porcelain effect..are you using a PC or MAC?
Suby & Sinem: MAC, I do not even know how to open 2 browsers on that thing smile Me a bush man I know, stick with what I know best PC, think it's from working with them for so many years in the IT world.

Excellent again, but too bad you cut her foot!

"(Sic) I was practically hanging on the edge of a gully"
That is NOT a good excuse my friend! ;-)
Suby & Sinem: Sidney, not an excuse, self preservation my friend grin I do have other images of her in full frame but none of those inages pack as much impact as this shot, SUDS LAW I guess sad

Suby
Wish the whole of her was there!! Seems like there was a lot of space behind her...she could have moved up a bit to avoid the gully dont u think?? wink
Suby & Sinem: LOL, Yanik, I did get her to move, no matter how hard I tried recreating the pose did not just come across as good as this (one of those moments that just did not want to recreate itself). I do have other images where the whole body is in the shot, but none as powerful as this smile Maybe I will post one of them up but not my favourite.

Suby
Suby, you are one cruel SOB, I hope you gave her a cup of bovril afterwards!!Now then, what the hell gives you the right to post such a fantastic shot and put the rest of us to shame??!!!! With her pale complexion and the angle that you shot at, this model reminds me of one of those Japanese actresses, you know, heavy white makeup et al. If that was what you were trying to acheive, then you have more than succeeded and admirably so. Great stuff Suby. Now pass some of that magic over to me you mean sod!! Regards, Neil.
not too sure about the skin tone,but it definately works for the setting and the mood the is creating,perfect pose from her...!great shot...
This one is a very special one. I'm not sure I like it because there's something quite morbid about it, the way she poses and the color of her skin probably. It's disturbing. Technically, it's a great shot but...

Oh flip Suby *blush* am I the only one who thinks she looks a bit .. dead? I think the colour and the depth of the leaves at the front of the shot add to that impression.
Great capture Suby! Lovely model, beautiful background. I'm not sure about the (too much?) post-processing on her skin though... Keep up!
Michael
very cool!!

her skin is like porcelain. the hues, compostion and her look have a very eerie, almost creepy, feel - but in a very good way. dark and sexy.
I just love this picture. You are just superb !!
Oh ! Don't work for me but it's full subjective and just about the picture; Maybe is it because I should have preferred different color tones ! Sorry smile

ok i like all the pictures in the F&N series but man you need some chocolate up in here... hire me!!!!

yeah!!

I am down with the Flu here and I am being such a pain in the behind....

Good work child......
yeah, this is really classy. one of my favourites that you've done of models. i like the ones you've done with various takes on one shot like a colour next to a b/w as well, or 4 shots processed differently all presented together.

this is great though, real class. great modelling by the gal too smile
