She's #150156 over on some other site. My first two drew absolutely no remarks, which is either really good, really bad, or really mediocre. So I thought I'd post a couple more from the same shoot on the 13th and see if I could get more of a rise out of the GG community. So feel free to let me know if the rock, suck, whatever.

For this shot I had a 46" photek softliter high and on access with the camera, a medium strip kicker camera right, and a gridded spot camera left. I know I cut off her arm, I suck, but I still like the shot.


Here the softliter was moved to 45deg camera right, still high. The med strip kicker was still there, the gridded spot was turned to the backgound, and a fill was added slightly camera right. To soften the fill I placed the center diffusion part of a 3ft, 5-in-one reflector about 6-10" in front of the light.

Post in the Photo Critique forum and no comments? You shouldn't be allowed to get away with that! ...... So I'm going back to look at that post again too. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Two very nice photographs of a very pretty lady.

Since you posted for critique though.

Picture 1: well you already mentioned the arm. I think her hair disappears into the black background a little and I would have liked a little hairlight to pick it out. Also her right arm looks very thin somehow, but I'm not sure why. Maybe losing part of her arm in shadow.


Picture 2: Uuum..... I like it. What can I say.
Oh! Found one! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] I would like to see a little more of her left arm around this side of her body. Her sleeve looks a little empty and her hand a little bit disembodied.
I think you would have to be careful with that though, because the S shape of her body in that pose is lovely and you wouldn't want to lose any of that effect.

Well, do you prefer not getting any comments now?

Hey! I feel for ya. I don't know what to think when I get nothing.

Both pics are good. But, if I were going to improve them .. . . .
Here are my quick thoughts.
#1 - I like this one - the hair/background doesn't bother me. You already mentioned the cut-off arm - How about a higher camera angle to put her head in more in the middle of the pic.
#2 - The background bothers me on this one - both the color and the wrinkles.
Tighter DOF and less backlight might help here.

Hope these are helpful.

Good points. I'm still glad I got some comments, the feedback is great, I completely missed the sleeve thing. Tahnks!
