Well I'm a newbie here and just attended Rolando's Portland workshop. It was a great day of learning and shooting. Worked with great models and had a beautiful house to shoot in....THANKS to Gordon!

Posting a couple shots from that day...please tell me what you think. Cheers

Very nice. You are either a quick learner or you have done some of this before. LOL

Who is the model?

Yes...I have mainly been shooting portraits, but glamour is something new. Having that foundation to build on really makes Rolando's workshop a boost for me.
The model's name is Laura....she's a local to Gresham, OR...not far from the location we were at for the workshop in Portland. Beleive it or not...it was her first time modeling...but you'd never know it from the great photos we all got.

Here's another from Saturday. Laura O. from Austin, TX

I think both photos are nice shots, but could each be improved. On #1, if you look at the area on the left, you'll see considerable clutter in the background. If you had shot from a slightly different angle, you could have had the curtain as the whole background. On the right lower side of the background are other distracting unknown elements. You could do some cropping changes to help the photo to get rid of part of this, but mainly its easier to watch your background when shooting and get rid of the distractions using different angle or shot position, or just moving background items, such as those on the right.

#2 would be better with some cropped off the right to get rid of the distracting triangle we can see of the brown floor. I would have been temped to shoot with the chin just a little higher. I like to avoid whites under the pupils of the eyes. Also when you shoot with the model stretched out away from you, you often get some distortion of the more distant part of the model so that's always something to be watched.

Nevertheless, both photos show nice color, lighting and the basic poses work well with #1 being the best of the poses.

By the way, just to see how each would look recropped (or in the case of #1 shot with background less distracting, I loaded the two images in Photoshop and made a few changes to see how they would look. I'll post them if you like. Don't want to post someone else's work without permission, though.



Cheers,
rfs

Thanks for the critique! It was a bit difficult to keep the clutter on the edges out of the picture...however I may have had enough room to move back and use a longer lens to fix that. I will take that advice back to photshop and make some minor cropping adjustments...although I do not want to amputate her foot in the picture.

Very nice color and light as others have said. I wish my first workshop pictures looked that good.

Roger does have very good advice, he has had lots of practice.

Keep shoting, and keep shooting her.

RFS's critique is right on but it is also Gordon's house. Between the window coverings and the sculptures it is hard to find a visually quiet spot. But your color and lighting is great as well as the posing of the young ladies. I suppose some post in PS to get rid of some of the stuff would have been in order.
