Women over 40

This series is about them, Their homes and environments and their expressions. I only utilize the lighting that is available in their environment although repositioned. There is no PS work other than levels and unsharpen mask. The images are shot RAW with no filters or tricks. This is what you get and with the 5 ladies I am shooting for this series I wanted it as real and as exposing as they wish to include all the wounderful imperfections.

Randall, the lighting is harsh, I do like her pose even her leg sticking out the way it is. Converting it to B&W might work to your advantage. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Javed. It is her Little halogen light by her piano which she plays. Again this series is more environmental then set up with reflectors, soft boxes and modeling lights. So my rule for this series is for only using available light. Be good and thanks RP

I like this - you explained the environment and how the image was taken, and made a great shot within the limitations of that environment. Now that's photography!

impact plus

Though I don't understand why you are referring to 'their age and imperfections'?

Hi Anthony. Because the subject is over 40 so that was to be clarified for content purposes. Imperfections is referered to more to the style of imagery. Most images here on photo.net are flawlessly presented. Models that are selected for their youthful looks etc. My comments are purely about showing that beauty is not always about perfection in fact what others may deem imperfect, I find interesting and attractive. So this series is to celebrate the beauty of older women in a very none stylelized setup. Hope that has clarified this for you. Thanks Randall
