I have been lurking for some time, and thought I might add to the fray. I am amazed at the talent on this board, and humbly ask for your advice and critique.

Here are a couple of shots I took last week. Thoughts?

I love the first image. Holy wow. the only thing is the difference in the two models expressions, one looks solemn and thoughtful and the other has a slight smile. the difference kind of throws me.

Are they twins?

The second one doesn't do much for me. It's not bad, just not as amazing as the first one. I don't like the crop with the boots on the right.

Nice job for a first post though. looking forward to seeing more of your work. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Thanks very much for the encouragement. The model on the left in the first picture is my receptionist at my office. I had casually mentioned that I was a photographer (part time -- for 25 years), and a couple of weeks later she brought it up. I gave her a link to my portfolio, and about a month later she said she would be interested in a shoot. She also had a friend (not her twin, by the way, but she might as well be) who wanted to join us. So, we set it up.

Her friend was a real self-poser and very comfortable in front of the camera, but she had a facial expression that I could not get her away from -- that pouty lip thing that Paris Hilton has made so popular. She is georgeous, and I got several good pictures, but most that included her had that pout...

Anyway, my receptionist is gorgeous, and very shy. She had warned me that she was not used to posing, and that the pics probably would not come out that great, but I assured her she did not need any experience and I would help her though it.

After about 30 shots she calmed down and I got some great pictures. Some were with both girls, and some individually of each. There are several of my receptionist that are absolutely fabulous, and I believe she could be a cover girl on any national magazine -- she really has the look and I think the "little girl lost" impression she gives really comes through in the pics.

I have scheduled another shoot with both girls, and am planning on a solo session with my receptionist soon thereafter. I'll keep you posted.

how do you resolve these two conflicting personalities in one frame?! either model could photograph well, though together thy fight.

I think you might reshoot, with the back model -- sour face -- staring intently at her friend rather than at the camera, with her eyes and expression partially averted. And the front model still looking at the camera with her great small smile...

Im a fellow lurker too. With the talent in this forum I get gun shy as well about posting.
This is great work! Only small distractions IE the expressions, and the croping of the boots other wise very nice work

Hey Bruce, I just wanted to try and clarify what I posted about your images.

I like the expression on the girl on the left, AND I like the expression on the girl on the right. I just don't think they mix well for this particular photo. whenever I shoot two girls I want one of 2 things, either playful or sensual.

But this is just my opinion, and I have less experience with a camera than you do, quite a bit less actually, but I know I like these two models and they seem to work well together.

Ok I'll critique the second shot

There is a black dot on the rug just under the girl you could have cloned out [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I really don't think you need to worry about not fitting in on here

REAL good job

better than me !
I didn't have a clue what to tell the two models/strangers to do in this shot
