I'm fairly new to the digital and glamour world and need some advice. What if any post processing should be done on these? These are jpegs straight out of my 20d (resized of course). I went to Wolf camera and had a couple of 5x7 prints made from the shoot and thought they looked pretty good but was wondering if some post processing on my part would make the final product better.

Also, should I set the resolution to 300ppi before I take them to get printed? It seems they default to 72ppi in the EXIF data.

I like the first image...thought it might help with just a bit of a crop losing the tan lines at the bottom...I dont really think it needed the bottom of area of this shot..because of the negative space above thier heads..I also did a bit of adjusting in levels and popped the contrast a bit..then did a bit of skin softening..as far as your second image..I think you might get a good head shot out of this sense you cropped below the knees! Love the pose in the first image!!

i really like what don did with the image and think you should try some of the same. keep it simple because when things are OVER photoshopped it become obvous. its a great image but with the subtle changes it definitely pops more. and i agree on the crop, just to eliminate the tan lines.

GREAT pose and GREAT models. cant wait to see more!

OH! and you might want to post a larger image in the post production forum to see what people come up with.

cuz i think i read something just recently that said 300dpi is overkill and 2-and-some-change dpi is more than adequate for today's ink-jet and dye printers. (maybe it was 220? 240? i dunno. something like that.)

Nice job on that one! I like what you did with the crop too. I've just recently started playing with this whole post-processing stuff. I think my biggest issue is to know when an image needs a little help and exactly what that help might be. I guess that will come with experience. I'll try some basic levels adjustment on some of my other shots and see how they turn out.
