Please let me know what you think, this was done with only outdoor light. Comments always needed. Please be gentle with the model as it is my wife [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] I believe i would rotate the body a little next time. The double chin thing...how do i remove that? I heard you have them kinda push their chin forward but that looks awkward to me, maybe its because they "push" too far. Anyway, im mostly looking to see if im using the light correctly or if i need to change something. I had a reflector with me, but very hard to hold camera and reflector....note to self...bring assistant next time. Thanks in advance.

Dean your wife/model has a lovely face.. Move in closer or zoom in to a much tighter crop, angle her shoulders as you suggested, shoot from slightly above and get her to lean her face into the camera a little.
Some times when a refelctor isn't practical as in this case you can find trees or buildings that will subtract light from one side of the face giving you great modelling without the use of a reflector. End result looks similar to the effect achieved with a reflector but is obtainned be subtracting light rather than adding as you do with a reflector.

Hope that makes sense.

Keep shooting

yeah, rotate her body so she's "cheating" to the camera in a 3/4 shot. another trick, besides what you mentioned, for reducing the under the chin thing is to have her press her tongue firmly against the roof of her mouth. that tightens the muscled under her chin. try it. you'll feel those muscles under her chin to tighten up.

as for the available light thing, you kept the sun behind her... that's a good thing. get yourself some white board and mount it on some styrofoam or get a collapsible photo reflector and find a way to set it up to bounce some fill back on her. better yet, get someone to help and have them bounce the fill light in with the reflector.

All that should be said has been said. Light usage is fine. Perhaps a shoot that is a little more of a down angles, 18 inches up over all it’s a nice shoot!

I agree with the suggestion to get in closer and do turn her shoulders at an angle to the camera. Also shoot from above her eye line so she tilts her head upward to get rid of the chin. Never have a model tilt her head down if you don't want to create a double chin.

Another thing you can do is apply darker make up under her chin. You want to make sure it looks natural, but it will define the chin line and make any doublage ( is that a word?) recede.

I also heard either on GG or in a book I was reading lately that is the model had a round face you turn it a little away from the camera to narrow it. I intend to try that this weekend with my wife/model who has a round face.

Lighting looks fine to me.

Jimmy D.....love your work! I've been lurking around here for a year and you have truly great consistant work. "I wanna shoot just like him when I grow up!" (photographically speaking!) After reading threads by him and about him I hop you all will accept my apologies if I have in any way created a monster! Ha, just joking Jimmy!
