Just my two cents worth mind you
1. Get rid of the green cast spilling over onto models right breast area
2. To much space above your subjects head
2. You shouldn't let your model extend her nose past her left cheek, not flattering, unless doinga profile

Regards,

Dusty

Thanks, i fixed the crop when i brought it into photoshop. how would you get rid of the green color cast and match her skin tones. I'm fairly good with photoshop, i own a sports photography buisness and use it all the time, but have never really had to occasion to fix skin tones, so im not sure how to do that realisticaly.

not sure if this willwork but give it a try
go to image/adjustments/hue&saturation/select green from menu under master then try decreasing the saturation and hue slider to taste


and about 30 minutes at 350 degrees will serve a multitude [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Hi James.

The whats and why's:

-model on right side of crop, lift left arm instead of right one and maybe include the full arm; because you need to help the observer lead out and back into the image. The right quadrant is preferable.

-Cutting one arm off in a crop kinda does not work most of the time; because (unless) you have a second one to balance out composition, it looks, well, cut off..

-face 3/4, not profile; because the nose sticks out badly and ruins the cute face. Once you do that, be sure to use front fill because hat will shadow forehad even more.

-too much lighting going on; if digital, then color balance appropriately unless this is the lighting YOU were aiming for. If film, use clor correction filters.

-the left light source (fill?) needs to be more towards camera and center; because the arm is blocking it and therefore causing the shaded area by wrist and by upper breast.

-try to get her right hand or forearm a bit on her hip so that the final image does not have a flat arm all along her side.

-The bra, the hat and the necklace match perfectly.
-The model seems she could cover the range from post teen to thirty something; very flexible- that is a good thing.
-MUA with her is critical as too much will look poor immediately PLUS: do not put too much red on this ones lips- they will look pouty and "Judy Garland on an adult" like. A Lolita kinda thing...not cool.

Please don't take this too harshly,,, but there is Way too much going on here with regard to lighting. My advise is to get back to basics. one main light and one fill light. look at the main light before adding the fill and go from there. Do yourself a favor and forget about photoshop unless you have something riding on this shot. Re-shoot. Don't jump off a bridge or anything.

i wont take anything to harsh, just an fyi though, there were only 2 lights and i didnt set them up, i was at rolando's workshop in dallas and there were people behind me gettin ready to shoot so i didnt want to mess with the lighting and then make them move it again. i agree that the green is totally distracting though

What I suggest is; Do not cut off arms and legs in a photo.The rest of her arm, unless grossly deformed for some reason, could make the photo a much better photo. Darken the background and give the most light on what your subject is in the photograph. Also fool around with different apatures, you might like the background being slightly blurred and only your subject in total focus. Or even part of your subject in total focus and so on . But do experiment more. And if you get discouraged remember, "You are not failing at photography, you are just finding different ways how not to take a perfect picture."

Good luck,

Hey James. I like the pose, and the model is good. Just two points I'd like to bring up. The first is the cropping. If it were me, I'd bring it down and to the left to include her elbow and remove the negative space above her head. The second is that it seems a bit dark, something like the camera exposed for the background and not her. Anyways, just some ideas and my 2 cents.
