Great model and setting, but I not so fond of the lighting. Were you using a reflector? The light seems a little low and her eyes appear too dark to me. Just my opinion. Good start, just work on getting food light on the eyes.

Pardon me for asking...and I mean no offence......I am looking at this and wondering if this is a layer job..;;like did you add her picture to another picture..../ composite?? To me it looks pretty "3-D".. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img]

Nice catch lights in her eyes... it draws my attention to them.. but the shoulder......I don't know... I am more of a fan of pulling it back..perhaps it's my pin-up style or something...who knows... it's a pretty nice photo.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]


Ooops...forgot to add an image.. (edited by me)

looks to me like you front-filled her with a reflector. maybe the wind was blowing? anyway, the reflector's "bounce" is dancing around and--in this image-- it's not really hitting her where it counts, i.e., evenly on her face and down her body. it all looks a bit underexposed and i'm thinking if you bring the levels up, it might exaggerate what the reflector is doing or, in this case, not doing. just my humble opinion.

Hey Allen,

I appreciate the feed back. I did use a reflector but it was small...foam board with gold wrapping paper...lol..cost me like 4.00. It was all I could do in a pinch. and now i do realize that to get the catch lights right (between 10-2) the light should be reflected down on her not up at her.

Thanks again

Hey JP,

no layer job and no offense taken....its pretty straight out of the camera minus some skin smoothing on the face and sharpening of the eyes..which shoulder would you have pulled back (usefull for next time)

Thanks for the input

Hey Jimmy,

as in the other posts..i did use a small reflector...had her mom hold it...lol..it does in fact seem a little underexposed to me as well but this was pre-knowing that nikon is about 1/2 stop off in the exposures of the d-100. A larger reflector and properly positioned would have done the the trick...this was approx 2mths into shooting...here is some of my work up to date...all of you are welcome to comment....again...im a 5mth photographer.

THANKS FOR EVERYONES FEED BACK. I like your guys work alot....happy shooting

Hey Mike:

Looks to me as though your metering system may have been fooled the the highlights from the reflector and underexposed the rest of the image. Some cameras have a 1 degree spot and most have the center weighted meter that can sometimes tweek the overall exposure if it's pointed at the brightest point in the image. I think the other critiques took care of everything else.

Well Ralph, you have a nice model, great location, great pose, and here's the but. I think that Rick has something to his meter idea. Try either metering off of her (the model appears underexposed) and is the reflector a gold/yellow color? If it is, it can work, but I think with the underexposure, it over blew the color balance. Anyways, in the spirit of fairness, here's one of my pics.

Rick,

Thanks for the feedback...would you suggest using the center weight metering..if so..when would be the best circumstances to use it?..which may be a tough one to answer..probably based on experience i would imaging..
