These images were shot by me and the copyright is mine, so you have permission to use retouched versions on your MM portfolio SO LONG AS you credit me (and I imagine the model would appreciate it as well?). Additionally, please let me know if I have permission to use your version.
This is from a shoot about a week ago. You can see my attempts at editing them, but I think they're missing a lot of potential. This may be a good chance for some of you to see what a film/digital hybrid workflow is like. It's a bit of work processing the shots, but it pays off in my opinion.
They will badly need white balancing and a lot of sharpening; that's just the way scans work. Personally I don't like using noise reduction because I like the look of film grain, but that's up to you. I'm also not a fan of heavy airbrushing or other similar forms of local retouching when working with film, but again that's up to you. Also, all of the TIFF images from roll 016 need to be flipped horizontally
All images are scans from film using an Epson V600 scanner. Roll 016 is from a Bronica ETRC using Kodak Portra 160, and the lone shot from roll 017 is from a Canon AE-1P using Kodak Portra 400. Take your pick of max-quality JPG's (5-12 MB depending on camera) and raw scans in TIFF format, which are 48-bit color at about 4000x5100 px/120 MB each from the Bronica and 2300x3400px/45 MB from the Canon.
Heres my take, also the grass makes her look like she has no feet lol.
Haha, I can't believe I didn't realize that until you pointed it out! The things my mind filters out automatically The link isn't working, but I really like the color tone that the preview has. Could I have a high res version to use on my profile, with credit given to you?

I like it, I'm torn between whether I like your version or mine more for my portfolio. Would you mind sending me a high-res version so that I can see it better and possibly use it? Dropbox link or whatever works great, or you can email it to me at chase.caleb(at)gmail.com.
With all respect, I'm not breaking either of those rules. I'm not asking anyone to do my work for me for free; I already have finalized versions that were delivered to the model. I'm trying to see what other people would do with the same image to compare to my work. The version supplied by tamilinda is small and compressed, so it's hard for me to see what was done and learn from it.
In regards to 3A, I'm neither requiring nor asking for high resolution copies in exchange for usage of the original. If that wasn't clear though: everyone is free to use my originals without giving me a copy of your finished retouch. With that in mind, I was asking if it was okay to see and (potentially) use the retouched version.
I've seen other people say the same thing here without any objections, and the rules aren't worded in a way that sharing the retouch when in no way forced to is against the rules. If that's the case, please clarify. If so, I also suggest that the rules be worded properly to instead say "3A. You may not require, suggest strongly, or otherwise advocate that high resolution images be supplied" leaving off the remainder of the sentence.
