Jacqui, sword, beach (pic overload - fair warning!)
Lens: FA 50mm Camera: K5 Photo Location: Melbourne, AU 
Posted By: imaspy, 08-10-2013, 08:23 AM

Jacqui has written a book. Very impressive, but she asked me to take some photos; some for fun, some for promo, some for book cover ideas. Don't have time to explain the significance of the sword, but just go with it :P

Jacqui has "those" eyes; the ones that seem to change colour depending on the light. I can see it depending on the light in these, particularly as golden hour approaches.

Already noted and to be corrected: fingerprints on the sword

Any further comments welcome.









































And finally, a shot in between shots, rugging up due to the photos being taken in winter

Nice series. Did you do any editing of the colour of her eyes?

hi charlie, thanks for that. IIRC, i either have that setting on natural, or neutral (or whatever the 'off' setting is named). the post processing was done in lightroom and finished with VSCO - emulating for kodak portra 160 VC film, hence the subdued tones and colours. do you think it works?

guilty yes, i did crank it up a bit in the closeup shots, but in almost all the others (that weren't closeup) i haven't. her eyes changed colour a lot, actually, depending on the ambient light temp and whether the sun caught them at a certain angle. there were other shots (which weren't keepers, sadly) where they looked like opals, straight out of the camera with no touch ups

Aha, I see. I feel I should warn that some of the edited shots stand out quite a bit. At any rate, she does have lovely eyes!

Cheers for the feedback and yes, i definitely take your point; it would definitely stand out as a series. But if she uses any of the images, it will only be one, so luckily there wont be anything for the viewer to compare to.

Nice shots and I think #8 fits the theme the best. Without knowing the exact meaning of the sword, her looking away adds to the mystery or mystical energy you may be going for.
