Very interesting setup. I never would have thought of an EOS-M w/ a 50mm 1.4 or 1.8 like that. Hrmmm. Nice shots btw.

Thanks, Ivan.

I always enjoy seeing your work.

I think that's the idea; ancient technique to produce more flattering image of someone who's not perfect.

If someone is taking a picture of me I like it to be overexposed to the point of being just white  ;)

Do you mean photographer wanted to say she is not good enough to be properly exposed?  ;)

Yeah, looks a bit blow on her right side and the lighting ratio's a bit harsh - the left side nose shadow is a bit distracting.

I'm always curious about people's monitors- to me, it looks very dramatic and contrasty, but with just enough skin texture remaining that I wouldn't call it 'blown'. I could see how a slightly differently calibrated monitor in this situation would make it look blown or texture-less, but it looks great to me!
