    You can use a lamp. You don't need fancy equipment to play around with lighting.

    Light on/off doesn't matter. What I'm saying is that there's no highlights or low-lights.

    The second has more contrast, therefore, you have more focus on the center of interest. Yes, this was cheated a bit through photoshop (most likely) but my point still stands.

    oh actually the light wasn't on, so I had to basically do it in the shaded dark somewhat. i want to get my own lighting, yeah, but that involves getting equipment i can't really get right now - but i do appreciate the comments. :) i'll show you some other stuff you could comment on later, if that's okay?

    aand we're told to save everything as raw ;;

    If you want crit: there's not enough contrast or shadow on either of them. Looks like you just turned on a main light for the room and snapped some shots.
    Try setting up your own lighting :3

    If you don't want crit, ignore the above and I hope you're enjoying your class.

    No point to save it as a raw at this point that you're just fiddling around. Though make sure your white balance is set correctly if you're gonna turn it off.

    ya our assignment for studio work is all about lighting which is very exciting! i love what we've seen in class so far and i can't wait to actually use the lighting equipment myself :3

    also hmmm i might show you a few images i took earlier! depends tho on how lazy i am because it's saved as raw and i need to manually open each one :(

    Look around for different places? Or get your own IPL handheld machine that they sell? Dunno how safe those are though.
    I know in the UK it's really expensive it's about double here... I quoted just for underarms back in Canada. I know one session for full bikini is about 90 bucks. I don't know what else you want done.

    My justification is if I have to get it waxed professionally somewhere.. it'd cost $10 just for underarms.. times that by every 2-3 weeks and you're thinking about 250 bucks a year. Why do that when I can have it permanently gone for a hundred or so more dollars?

    If you shave though, and don't mind shaving, it's up to you.. because in the long run, razors are cheaper.

    And.. "ever letting you have it done" is nonsense. You can always have it done eventually, even if you are old. The only downfall is that it wont work on white hair.

    Oh I thought I replied to this! Nevertheless, I do appreciate it. I dunno for here it's apparently $600 or something? But that's... putting Pop/Nan off from ever letting me get it done which is quite annoying. ;( Is there any other way I could get it cheaper idek.

    yeah it's fine. I got a Diode laser done because I have fair skin and very dark hair (I'm a dark brunette) but I only got to do 4 of my 6-8 sessions.. because I had to move to the UK. Just make sure they're a certified laser technician. I went to sanctuary spa which is a very upscale spa, and it was because some lady that did her bikini recommended it to me. For me it costed about.. 35- 40 bucks per session? I sorta did a pay as you go thing. I didn't get a package of one large payment. Check around as you may be able to do some free consultations. I had a consultation with IPL.. but they just seemed more expensive and takes more sessions. IPL is better if you have lighter hair though, but for me that wasn't a concern so I could just go Diode laser.

    It was more of a concern to me because shaving really irritates my skin so I have to wax all the time.. and it's annoying to have to wait for the hair to grow a certain length to wax it off. That's why I got my underarms done. I wanted to get full bikini done too by the time I decided I wanted it done, I had no time.

    kuraaaaa i wanted to ask you about hair removal since i remember you saying you got it done! well i mean that's if you're okay with me asking (if not that's totally okay but i wanted your advice considering you know about this already). which did you go for, ipl or laser? and if so, is there certain qualifications i should be looking for in regards to choosing where to go for it? also how costly can it be? :x is it a cost each time you go or one payment?

    No, it wasn't obvious; you only have yourself to blame for your actions and again you are assuming I should know something about you. So thanks for an excuse instead of an apology.
