Had a shoot yesterday with a new model. She's been out of the game for awhile and decided to get back in. So she contacted me. She wanted some goth stuff.

Didn't quite get to that, but we'll do it again.

Here are the images. I'm trying a new method of badging as well. I wanted to be able to put the model's name in the badge, and have it be more of a graphic element. I don't do it to protect my copyright, but to promote myself. Let me know if it is too much.

I think the warmer shots do work better for this model, but that may be personal taste. the badge works well, but I'm not sure its consistent. I think it would work better if the bar is the same height for each photo rather than different for each. Also, you might experiment with the kerning for the text, especially on your name.
On #2, I think there is too much negative space on the left. I'd tend to put her on the right vertical line of thirds to determine ultimate cropping.
Cheers,
rfs

Thanks I hadn't noticed the difference in bar heights. I dragged the layers from one image to another and it looks like the verticals come off a little different.

Bigbest problem with this one if I have to do it by hand. My old logo was just a brush and it was one step to draw it on an image. I'll figure out how to automate it eventually.

I like the warm skin tones on images 2, 3 & 5. The model might look a little better moved slightly towards the center but still off center on number 2. Although her skin tones are not warm on 1 & 4, they do match the background this way.
As for your copyright logo, it is good looking and professional without over powering the image since you seem to have reduced the opacity on most of them.

I like your images. They're pretty far from goth, but I like them that way.
Your domain name is very difficult to read and to remember. Have you ever thought of using your name with photo or photography or something along that line?

Yeah, I never really intended to be known as a goth photographer, but my first publication was in Gothic Beauty and then I started attracting goth models. Eventually I did the Goth Swimsuit Calendar, and that's just how I'm know. I guess it became my style.

Now I'm kind of trying to break out of it. I think I'm going to shoot just these two setup for awhile to see what genres they work for.

Thanks for the feedback. You are right it is hard to read in all caps. I may need to change fonts because that one only has caps.

There is another rather famous celebrity photographer named Ron Davis, so I try not to just use my name.

These are excellents shoots and I like them.....
My personal opinion is if we think of the photo first then the wormer colors are more attractive but if we think from the model side I'm sure that first photo is her best appearance then third and fourth photo. I would not use lot of shadows on her face.... but it is personal opinion....
anyway all of them are great....
Regards Zak
