Apparently I made the mistake of posting this is a different forum. Anyway, I'm just starting out in glamour photography and would like some critique on my first shoot.







Thanks to all!

Do you have the original image from that last two pictures? It looks like you've gone into photoshop and palyed with the filters--not a bad thing--but these images look distorted.

Your first image is underexposed and lacks contrast. Keep in mind that glamour photography is all about the model. I would have liked to see the models face or a reflection or her doing something besides just standing there. The towel hanging on the shower door is also a distraction. Details, details, details.

Don't fret this critique. We all started out some where and our images were balsted for one thing or another. You'll find that even the high end pros that post here get taken to task. Welcome to Garage Glamour and keep shooting--that's the only way we all get better.

Please believe that fretting is that last thing on my mind. I really appreciate your comments. It's the only way I'm going to learn. These were shot with a Sony Mavica 2.1 MP. The first shot was a long shot, so when I turned it 90 degrees that's how it came out. I'm in the process of purchasing a 5.1 MP so that should help some. I've also read (on here) that shooting horizontal is better than vertical, so I'm going to stick with that. I'll also concentrate more now on subtle things that may take away from the shot like the towel, and bringing more realism into the picture like her face and the model actually doing something when taking a photo like this.

Thanks again for taking the time to respond!
