Once again I'm working on headshots. These are ala Kevyn Major Howard; shot in the driveway with natural light and a white reflector panel. The model is Lindsey Burris (Other Place #217051).

Nikon D200, Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8G VR
ISO 100, f/3.2, 1/250 @ 170mm

Far from being an expert of any sort here, this is JMO.
I do like all these images. My only thing is that on her nose there's a shadow or skin discoloration or something that attracts my view. Is that something a jpeg thing or can that be cloned out.
It seems to make the top of her nose look dirty.
I like the lighting.

You have the technical side down as you see the light. Now you fine tune the expressions, poses and things to have the model fall into the light.

Image 1 - Lose the chair arm. Model could have arched her back and leaned into the camera more. Watch how the light falls into a particular subject. Notice the light falling on the shadow side, mouth area.

Image 2. What if she tilted her forehead into the hands....that would have gave it an awwwwwww feeling. The light would have also directed into the model. Facial lines would have been minimized.

Image 3. Clone the chair handle out to give a pleasing negative space. You are a little top heavy with space and forehead of model is paid attention to more this way. If you show the whole head, don't cut off her neck per say.

Proud of you!!!!!!!!

Someone else commented about the nose looking dirty. That darkness on her nose is a result from the white reflector. The reflector is low and close to her on one side creating a shadow up the length of her nose. See the button of light right on the end of the nose and then it starts again at the top of the nose. The shadow falls of the opposite side from the reflector. That is one of those little details that will make you want to kick yourself after the shoot if you didn't catch it while shooting.

That is the beauty of this site... we can all learn something even if we aren't the victims of the shooting. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Thanks for the post.

Great feedback and critique (like I expected less [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]). I see all the points you've made. I'll add that I think I could have used just a touch lighter background to get some more separation with her hair or maybe even upped the ambient in the garage to let the color show through just a little more. These are just three from a session with a ton more winners. The best news is that Lindsey is thrilled with the results and wants to work with me much more in the future!

Actually for the first two shots the reflector is a 42x72" panel and was placed standing up to her right (camera left) about 6 feet away and 60 degrees in front of her. I was trying to avoid using any fill (it was windy and I had only one assistant). In a perfect world I would have had a second reflector bouncing some feathered fill/hair light on her left. For the last shot you are indeed correct. I laid the panel on the ground and used the assistant to hold a 42" round to try to light up her hair.
