The first thing a model under thirty says to me (usually) is 'can you make me look thinner? The first thing a model over thirty says is 'can you make me look younger?' and THEN she says 'and can you make me look thinner?"
Heavier people are hard to work with only in that they rarely want to look as heavy as they are which puts you in the position of trickster/charlatan when it comes to finshed product.
There are a million tricks, some for shooting, some for post, but, at this stage of your shooting career, I wouldn't spend too much time trying tricks, I'd spend every minute I could shooting. If that girl is a friend of yours shoot again as soon as possible and try to do something totally diferent from the last set.(Looking at her, I bet she smiles like a million bucks) You have other friends, male and female, who will wander around in the world with you and let you try different setups...
What I'm trying to say is, don't get too hung up worrying about and fixing stuff, or beating yourself up because you didn't get a Vogue Magazine Cover shot your second time out of the box, get hung up on getting out in the world shooting, it's the best way to learn.
Have a great holiday,

Thanks for the inspiring reply. Im glad I can always come to this site for positive feedback and useful info during my first stages of shooting.
I plan on shooting again with this model since she is understanding and wiling to work with me. I'll have to find some ways for her not to look 'heavy'. What ways can I accomplish this? Shooting and post proccessing...?
By the way.. AWESOME work!
