Okay a couple of thoughts none of which are going to be pretty..

The first image looks like you accidentally slid the slide when the scanner was scanning it. I hope its just a goof and not intentional.

The second image, you have high lights and low lights...on her face and in the background. It doesn't work for you and doesn't work for anyone else.

Shooting at high noon, if you ask the vets...particularly if they are lazy wil tell you its the best time of day to shoot...but here is the skinny most will not tell ya.

Get your model in the open shade but make sure, that whatever is going on behind her is within 3 stops of the foreground. Otherwise you will wind up with "white without detail" meaning you blew the "sh&t out of the background"

The reason the lazy vets like high noon, simple we don't need reflectors or assistants, we use the environment to make that happen.

This first image pushes it to the extreme, where there is still some detail..but a bit over the edge.


This one the model is balanced with the background.


and finally, a member had mentioned an old rule about the bright proceeds and the darks receed...what he says make sense. A great rule to live by.

Hi Tony..
Sounds like Jeff gave you some tips on the photography end of it, I'm going to nail you on some other things.

Image 1:
The model's hands should not be clenched or in a fist unless she is holding something.
I like the pose but it looks like she is squinting.
Does she have some hair sticking straight up on top of her head?...Easily ps'd out.
I think she could have turned her upper body a little more to the camera and pulled some hair back....there is some illusion thing goin on with her left breast that is not flattering.

Image 2.
I'll say this once. Don't shoot a model by that shrub ever ever ever again. I can't get passed it. Big no no. It doesn't work. Never again...ok?

Take my suggestions for what they are worth. Keep posting, keep growing, and remember, we are here to help each other grow and we are brutally honest so you continue to progress!!

It looks, to me, like you resized the first one, but didn't keep the aspect ratio. It's like it's stretched horizontally. Otherwise, do listen to Jeff and Kelly! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Tony,

Jeff hit a lot of things on the head. The only issue I have with what he said is the lazy vets thing. I have to shoot at high noon outdoors to make living. Most of the time, I like to find even, open shade, but if I can't, I'll use a scrim to give me even shade across the model, or I'll use a fill to overpower the sun. I've come to love a strobe and beauty dish for that, but that's just me. You can get away with it using an off camera speedlight as well.

Mike

Doug,
Thank you for agreeing with me. You will see those that agree with me become my life long friends [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

On another note, you have a nice S curve going on with your model but I would like to see you punch a little more light onto your model's right side of the face and neck. Sometimes those nasty shadows can make a subject look monster-like. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

ps...cute image!

I was just a tourist that day. I tried lining up my family to act as a reflector, but it didn't work. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] But I just HAD to take the shot, anyway. The model wouldn't "Lego" me until I did. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
