Aphrodite
CW Studio #3/5
Model: Louise
Make-up: Semra Muhtar

There's a theatrical quality to this one that gets me. If only we could have imported the Parthenon into the studio for the afternoon, it would have made for a nice little background scene. High drama!.

Lou is always very critical of her profile, it's probably her biggest bug-bear come to think of it, and I'm thoroughly convinced there's very little to worry about.

Good idea, some pillars would be very nice as backdrops.

Her profile looks very classical & appropriate to the toga drapes.

Could maybe try B&W or tinting to emphasize her strong profile.

I'll let you bring the pillars for me Mramshaw lol! Thanks for the kind words and suggestions.

No pillars in my part of the world, but lots in London.

Off the top of my head, British Library and National Portrait Gallery.

Look into B&W and high ISO shooting - I wish I could be there!
