I have posted 5 new images of a shoot done last week. Most of my experience has been with still life and table top shooting and I am now just getting into working with people. I will be doing another shoot later today and would like some input from the group on where to make needed improvements. Thanks for looking and any critiques. Gregg

Greg:

Not bad but you have two others in your GG portfolio that are better than this one. In this one I find the background distracting, the shadows on her face too dark and her hand mysteriously appears from nowhere. Your light source has been shadowed by her hair and left her nose the brightest spot in the image which draws the eyes directly to it.

I think if you were to raise your position to the model and have her raise her nose correspondingly then the shadows and the bright spots could have been eliminated.

Keep shooting and post more.

Rick D.

Hi Greg:

My main critique would be about the lighting. There is quit a hot spot on her face and nose. I think her bangs are creating the shadow on her forehead and making the rest of the face much hotter. There is also quite a bit going on in the background. R U shooting digital or film?

Thanks for the critiques. I am shooting digital Canon 20D with the 18-55 lens. For some of these I was using the built in flash with a cloth diffuser.

The light from the right side of the image appears to be a window. Perhaps using that light and adding a silver or whit reflector would soften things up. If you are able to firewire images to a laptop or convenient desktop computer, you can proof your photoshoots as the sessions develop and adjust accordingly. I found the image capture method useful after having to use polaroid backs for over a decade. I still am not crazy about digital, but man is it cheaper to shoot models digital instead of on film!
