Ok, this is a next step for me in glamour. Jamille was wonderful to work with. We both had fun and we still have other ideas to try together at a later time.

How am I doing here?

This is a cute idea but I don't like the sheet being folded and then going clear out of the frame. It's too contrived, it makes it too obvious that this was a set up and posed situation. All our images, or at least most of them, are in fact set up and posed, of course, but there's still that little veil of "could have happened, could be, could be" that has to fall over a shot in a bedroom like this. Also, I would have done something to make the objects visible in the mirror a little less visually chaotic. Assuming I had noticed them. Which I probably wouldn't have. Isn't hindsight wonderful?

The model could be looking at the camera a little more directly, or a little less. Right now she's sort of looking dazed. Her feet are obscured and not in a good way by the sheet, I'd have either covered one of them or brought them out.

I like the composition for this scene, with the exception of the sheet, this is a good use of what looks like a pre-existing bedroom setup. The model looks like she could be really cute with a little more expression. I'd say you're doing all right and should keep getting better. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Thanks for taking the time for your excellent comments. The sheet was a bother for me. We tried a couple of different things and may have gotten in right in another one.

Would you do anything different with the lighting?

*I* might have, because I have various options available to me. Although I might have been more interested in the white balance than the lighting: it's simple but totally acceptable lighting, in my opinion, but the scene is a little cool.

I don't know what your resources are lightingwise. I try not to criticize lighting qua lighting, but rather its results, say if there are shadows I don't like. Given the nature of the set, you're pretty much going to get shadows from the bed no matter what you do, and I don't see any other glaring shadow problems.

I can appreciate the sentiment on not criticising lighting, but I'm curious. What options do you have available that you might have tried? (if you don't mind my asking).

It depends on the room. I might have tried bouncing on-camera flash off the ceiling, or a wall, with or without my Sto-Fen diffuser. (Mirrors would have made that tricky, but it costs nothing to try.) I might have tried to do something with monolights and overpowered the natural light if I didn't like its quality at that time of day. I might have just tried various things with a reflector of different colors to dump a little more light on the model. You have to play with it.

I was shying away from the on-camera flash (well, shoe flash), but that's a good idea to try. I hate the battery life I get out of it, though.

Get some high-capacity NiMH rechargeable batteries. Not only are they cheaper to operate, but they last longer than alkaline or regular ni-cd batteries.
