    New orange backdrop used in earnest

    First image is one inspired from a magazine. I took it from there and got the next 2. Love the backdrop colours.

    Great stuff, Graham

    But now you're really starting to play mind games with us! Amazing.

    Outstanding. Very striking color for a backdrop. Good stuff.

    You got me. I did a stupid thing. Yeah, it was so easy just to handhold the first shot and the same for the second.
    Sure, I could standin the same place, focus of the same place so everything was in perfect register.
    So easy, even and idiot like me could do it.
    WELL, apparently not. My register was out and I ended up taking 30 minutes to adjust, and in doing so I have chosen the wrong pic (the other one had the mirror edge in view). Totally missed it cos I was distracted with the PP.
    Lesson learned.

    OR can I claim it was artistic endeavour? Thought not. This seems to be one of the points I was discussing in another thread. A photographers eye sees more detail than a non-photographer. I'm still working on moving from one to the other, sometimes I take a step backwards.

    Neat images. However it seems like to BG is reflecing and coloring the subjects face in the first image. Not in the second image where she is s distance away from the BG.

    I think I need to drop back off the saturation a little to reduce the facial tones back to normal (colour a little off, I worked on the laptop for this set, desktop has colour management set up).
    Thanks for the work.
