    Umm, did you get permision to use those photos... Some guys are kinda
    touchy about that, even with your disclaimer.

    Lovely work. The only thing I found that I thought / felt was wrong
    was a matter of what one could call artistic interpretation. The pale
    blond with the scraggy hair obviously was going for the dying waif
    look. The more natural skin tones you gave her put some health into
    the picture. It would have seemed more 'natural' to me for you just
    to even out her pale skin, leaving her with a nice almost corpse like
    white glow.

    When doing glam shots of women, especially those who've done their own
    makeup, it's a good idea to keep an eye on whatever line they stop
    with the colours and powders. The pouty brunette cutie had learned
    not to stop at the jaw line, but had forgotten that she had on a vee
    neck and let her makeup go at or just above the collarbone. Hard to
    get an even blend there, but worth the effort.

    It was nice to see how much more glamorous a glam shot can be with
    some nice after work. Inspiring.

    Welcome. I like the effect of before/after on the site.

    If you hang around this NG for a bit, plus, I
    think you'll learn a lot. You seem to be doing quite well with the learn-by-
    doing mode.

    Thanks for sharing, and again, welcome.

    Yeah, well, if I were you, I wouldn't worry about it. You won't be on
    it. (©2005 FM...)
