06/30/2005: "Pickup Sticks"

pickupsticks (164k image)

It's been a while since I've posted fingernail photos...
model: Deanna Russo, CED
makeup: Michelle Tabor
hair: Jason Murillo
nails: Carla Collier
styling: Karey L. Frost
jewelry: Sossi Collection

This was at the end of the day, right before poor Deanna got a migraine headache from dehydration. She ended up being OK, but I have to admit to a little bit of anxiety at the thought of a model dying in my studio.

I understand the emphasis on the nails and the sticks, but her eyes seem a bit soft and I keep being drawn to that. I like the pose and the colors incorporated in the shot though. I like this black and white tile though. Must get some of that to play with myself. I forget to use stuff like that in studio shots.

Maybe I'm being picky, but she kind of has "old-man hands". i'm a horrible person.

That looks like an ad for the next STEPFORD WIVES movie. Or Mannequin 3.

You know?

I too am drawn to her eyes. but I think that's just the model. The see the nails as the definite focus. Love the shadows. Great picture.

Freaking great! So far this is my favorite shot.

Thanks everyone. Yes, it's a little hard to see the difference in focus from the hands to her face in the small blog image. This is much more apparent in the full page shot in the magazine. It's actually one of those things that I noticed when I sized the image down, but was a little biased from my prior knowledge of the focus. I didn't realize how others might not be able to see it as clearly.

Magnificent color palette, and your perspective is very effective.
