Hi guys,

Here's a link to 35 images from a shoot earlier this week, themed around anime and Japanese Lolita...
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/yvvvwcf3eyif1y3/xNptWmKgDE

Let me know the ones you like and I'll send you the RAW version.

I'm looking to see what you guys can add to these unique pics and I hope they serve as great test images for you to showcase or refine your skills.

Pretty standard rules as follows:
- You are welcome to use the retouched images for your MM portfolios but please credit as follows... Photographer: ECP Images (Mayhem #2810717), Model: No-elani (Mayhem #2898326)
- For usage beyond Model Mayhem you will need to ask permission
- Max 5 images (happy to send more once I've seen some results)
- Please add your work either to this thread or send me a private message
- No logos or watermarks on the image
- No commercial usage of any images

This is my first post to this specific forum and I'm really excited about seeing the results!!

I'm sorry I couldn't find a more theme appropriate background to use but thanks for sharing.

Great job, this is really creative. Also, nice work on the shadows. Did it take you long?

I've been impressed with the images I've seen so far. You guys have come at the challenge from very different angles and the results are stellar in each case.

Layer Blending Modes are my friend when it comes to bleeding shadows into backgrounds. I could have gone crazy and tried to get rid of the swirl too but I didn't have the time and am not getting paid wink

It can take a long time (for me) to put something like this together but most of the work is done in the planning and shopping for high-quality stock images to work with. I like Morguefile.

Holy cow, this is beautiful. You've done a superb job. I'm particularly pleased you got rid of that annoying zipper bump in her catsuit but I love all the other choices you made, eg. floor, tones, etc. I wish I had your talents!

Outstanding work here. Clearly you've put a lot of effort into it with the catsuit edits, floor/walls, wash, not to mention the pose. The result is really dramatic and futuristic. Great job!!

Wow Tom, incredible job on a very challenging pic. The light was very contrasty and we had to finish up the shoot quickly (so, I didn't expose the shot correctly) but the location was too good to pass up and you did awesome work rescuing the shot. It looks really futuristic. Did it take you long? What drew you to this one?

Stunning work. I can almost see my reflection in her eyes. Nice finesse, very natural.
