Texture CC and Seamless question

My seamless question is I want to get another roll of seamless, a lighter colour than my T. Gray and Crimson. A local photog. store has Colorama brand and i want to know how nice Fern green looks. Anyone have it/use it? Love it? Hate it? I'm not sure i can trust the niceness of this green online. Here's the link: http://www.vistek.ca...less-paper.aspx

I've only just started using textures in some images. I personally like this...wanted to get some feedback...feel free to CC the photo as well. TIA Smile

Very lovely portrait and texture. I also love that fern green you are looking at. Wish I had a setup so I could buy paper Smile

Lovely! You certainly capture the mom-to-be's pretty glow.

I think that I responded on ILP that the glow was on her right leg. I guess it is left. I am so bad with the whole direction thing. You think that I would have learned by now! But there actually seems to be a halo on both sides.

Here is my take on the texture. You are using the texture to mimic a textured backdrop which is fine but doesn't really effect the mood of the pic like I usually look for texture work to do. Esti posted some good examples recently of using texture in a studio shot to really change the feel and mood of the image.

The picture of mom is very nice. I am sure she will love it.

I like the image and i think its a good use of light as well....the only ting im going to nit pick on is her clothing...i don't like what she is wearing for a maternity photo...i always tell my clients to bring something simple...jeans and a tank or t shirt...just something more simple and less like a track suite, b/c it can really make or break a shot.
