Nice work and congrats on the DD! Not that I am pro in the field of art photography, but I know the key to getting rid of the glare is all in the angle of the lights, usually two lights at 45 degrees from it. And a little distance helps, so it's not to exposed. I'm stiill trying to perfect my lighting techniques, though. Thankfully, it's not too distracting from this piece. I can fill in with my imagination.
Gawd, the light play here is amazing, just amazing. I feel like any painting that takes on manipulated light, plus water, already really hard to make look realistic, add skin texture, and you've just hit the epitome of really hard. lol So, brava to you. o.o!
almost put this in my fav photos folder LoL excellent job Looking at it closely know on it own page I can still sense some of the artist hand but only ever so subtle. There just enough of it there to justified this being a painting and not just a photo.
