Beloved younger daughter

Her name is "Sheikha", in our terms Sheikha means like a female president or a ruler, i think many of you heard the word "Sheikh" in arab world.

All the shots are no pp [maybe #1, very minimal] but all the shots the skin is untouched or not retouched at all.

Re: Beloved younger daughter

Beautiful shots of a beautiful little girl. You lighting is very well done. It is obvious that she enjoys posing. I do have one question. Why did you feel the need to put lipstick on such an already beautiful child?

Thank you very much!

Yes, many people asked me same question that why i use Make-up on my children, to be honest make up will make them more beautiful than normal, and second they watch some models photos on magazine or on TV when i watch them and then they ask their mom to put make-up, so my wife never say no, i have photos with and without make-up or lipstick anyway, i like them both, but with make-up they look more mature or older than their real age, they use this make-up always when they go to a wedding parties.

Trust me, don't rush it. They grow up fast enough as it is. Nice shots of both daughters.

Re: Beloved younger daughter

She certainly is beautiful. I do like the lip gloss and her skin is...flawless! #5 looks like there's a story in there somewhere...what an expression on her face!

Re: Beloved younger daughter

Tareq, what are you using for lighting? I only see one light in her eyes. Have you done similar shots with a lighter background or a hair light?
I know you from POTN and our 1d M3 discussions.

Thank you very much!

The story simply is that her mom [my wife] telling her to leave everything what in her hands on the floor, so my daughter looked at her mom and show her her hands with only holding a bottle of water, nothing else.

I was using only one light with beauty dish for the main, and another light on Octobox from behind for kicker, nothing else.

I have another shots with lighter background, but seems you didn't saw them as i posted few here or on POTN, i posted many studio shots of my daughters.

And to be honest, 90% of my studio shots are without hair light because i don't know what to use for hair light and where to place it for it, so i don't confuse myself and ignore it.

Re: Beloved younger daughter

Your kicker is lighting her hair some! I would pull it back further to separate her from the dark background.

I get in a rut on POTN and seem to go to just a few topics that ate updated for my comments. I will watch for your shots again. Best of luck to you.
