Hi, I was hoping I could get some feedback on this photo.

http://408designs.com/circleprop

I would like to know if there is anything I should have done differently? I am new at this so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Jamie

PS - Here's what I used.
Canon 10D
Sigma 24mm-70mm 2.8 @ 50mm
ISO 100 @ 250/5.8
1 Novatron flash slightly above models eyes at camera position
1 Novatron flash with an umbrella 45 degrees behind and above model

In general I think this was a good shot. A few things that I see.. The focus appears to be off. I think this would be much better if it were sharp. There are many areas that see to be blown out. When I look at your tech data I seem to recall that when using a 10D you are not gonna sync properly when your shutter speed is over 200. Dont quote me on that but it seems I read that in the manual lst night. I just bought my 10D last night so I am no expert there. I like the prop and pose. The only other thing, and this my just be my laptop monitor but her feet seem to have a purple hue. I look forward to seeing more from you.

Overall a pretty good shot. It seems a little soft on my monitor. With the 10D I've had the best luck using the center focusing point. Focus on the eyes hold lock and recompose. If you let the camera pick a focusing point you don't know where it will focus. Sync at 250 is okay, otherwise you would have had a black band cutting off the top or bottom of the image. Flash duration on older studio packs may be an issue at 250, but I'm not sure about the Novatron. The hair across the face bothers me, but that's just me. Others may like it. Keep shooting and posting. I like what I'm seeing.

I feel this could've been shot more to the side.
The colors could've been a little bolder.
The subject and prop look fine. It's more of a aesthetic
thing for me.

Greg.



Have a good day.

I came back to this forum after thinking about the image and the few comments. I have been fortunate to have as a good friend a retired highschool photography teacher. Whenever I send him one of my images for comment, nine times out of ten he will tell me to crop tighter. I know you want to show the prop, which is unlike anything I have seen before, but her legs detract from her beauty. The face is so much lighter than the legs.
As for the eyes, I like to see two, but if only one, it should be open more. It seems to be what I call a lazy eye.
She is nice looking and I bet you have more to show us. I would emphasize her hair and nice face. You have nice lights and I do not see the problem the others say about focus.
The important thing is if she likes it.

Respectfully,

Jim

Hi Jamie

Overall, I like the shot. I like the concept and I've seen some wonderful shots using the same prop. As to what I notice about the image that I don't like, I notice that her feet look like her circulation has been cut off (they are purple). The top half of her body seems to have recieved a lot more light than the lower half (tan legs, washed out torso). The hair across her face is a bit distracting but I also think it can work well with her expression. The "bedroom" eyes lend themselves very well to the disheveled hair...that can be very sexy and have strong sexual overtones. She is obviously very beautiful and I'm sure you have more great shots with her. I'd love to see some more. As far as focus goes, it looks fine on my monitor but the advice of another responder holds true...it's all about the eyes. If everything is in focus EXCEPT the eyes, then the entire image will look blurry. The "eyes" have it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Thanks for sharing and have a most excellent weekend!

Mike
