We'll I had this beautiful model show up yesterday and in our original conversation we we're going to shoot some casual shoots and then discuss doing a bikini shoot at the beach. Somehow she mixed this up like a scramble egg. Because she showed up with 2 bikini's to wear.

She wanted to do some outdoor shoots and she was barely getting the make up put on at 11am. So we decided to do some indoors then head to the pool for half an hour (I didn't really plan on getting any good shotos). We'll it was time to break in Jeff's brilliant reflector at high noon.

here's the results

Wow she is beautiful !! For middle of the day they look great. When I look at the images my eyes go right to her lips..They look so beautiful..She looks beautiful. Did she do her own makeup ?

she's at the other place #15192

the makeup was done by her friend which has been assisting another MUA for a few years doing wedding.

She has some great legs but the unforunate part is, a noticeable shorts tan line. So quite a few of the photos I cropped off her leg.

but she's beautiful in person equally as much as in front of the camera

Wow, Kwik, looks like that Brilliant Reflector works real nice. (Note to self: buy Brilliant Reflector.) Were all the outdoor shots done with just daylight and the reflector?

And also I'm wondering how you lit the second shot -- what type of setup did you use? It's probably something simple, I'm just too tired right now to figure it out. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Good job with these. I think the first one's my favorite. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

the 2nd shoot is with one alien bee 800 camera right and using the "brilliant reflector" camera left. First time using the reflector in studio and I really like the extra coverage I am getting, not to mention that I don't need an assistant holding it. As for the outdoor shoot, i'm going to try the gold side next time

I keep coming back to your post - and I have been drawn to your first image you posted in this series. I think it has a great attitude - I like the general composition but felt something was lacking or maybe too much is in the composition.

I thought maybe a crop would help make it more powerful - she is a beautiful young lady but the way she is positioned in posture in this shot her hips appear a little too wide. Maybe don't include the hips.



my 2 cents...

... would have been to use the reflector as a scrim rather than to throw more light on her, thereby casting too many angled shadows on her as you can see in image 1 and 3 in your post. As your instinct let on, you were shooting in conditions that were not favorable by shooting in direct sunlight at noon. You can see that the light is not even enough throughout your model's skin in image 1 and 3.

My suggestion here is use the reflector as a scrim providing her shade so that the light is even. This will require 1 or 2 assistants to help hold the scrim between the sun and the model.

My 2nd suggestion is to put her in natural open shade so that there is even lighting and then u can use the reflector to bounce light back onto your model.

In my image below, I've shot at the same time of day as you and placed Stacie in the shade of the trees. I did not use a reflector here rather I used the concrete around the pool as a manmade reflector bouncing light up into the model's body and face.

I hope that you see the difference....

I like the crop, I had some more images that we're a little wider out that would of worked better with the hips but this new lens I was shooting gave me so many soft images I threw out almost 80% of them. I need my 70-200L back.
