Thank you!
For this one I used a regular living room lamp, which is kind of like this one: ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I… I layed it down sideways on a chair so that the top light was roughly on my eye level.

What a wonderful image!  I'm so pleased to have discovered your work.  I particularly love your self-portraits - they are sensitive and capture you beautifully.

Very nicely done Mia!  Like the lighting, and your expression.  Nicely composed - I like the balance.  Your eyes are wonderfully intense here.)

Interesting title.  I'm going to have to ponder that for a while before trying to comment.  You've got me wondering... ;-)


(I notice you left off the lip color this time.  ;-)  Just *my* opinion, but I think your natural lips here are a lot prettier!)

Thank you very much!

Hah! While I do prefer red lips myself, I agree that a nude colour works a lot better in photos.

It depends on the photo.  Here, you don't have a lot of obvious makeup on, so you are really depending on the pure simplicity of the image.  Other photos I've seen have a lot of makeup on the model, with a lot of fancy work with the hair and outfit, so there it goes well.

One of the beauties of your portraits is that you strip away all of the externals and leave just YOU -- the person.  That's one of the questions which art asks us: When you pull away the clothes, the makeup, the fancy hair, all the stuff we surround ourselves with, and we stand alone in the darkness, what are we left with?  Is there anything left behind the "masks" we put on to impress other people?

what are we left with when we take our last breath?

You've created a really beautiful image that asks a lot of good questions.  ;-)

Of course it depends on the rest of the photo, but as you say, with my general style of portraits it works best without.

I really appreciate it, thank you :aww:
