Comments / critique / suggestions always appreciated.

The color image could probably have used a touch of fill in the left eye, but otherwise I think I'm happy with this image. Am I just blowing sunshine here or are we getting closer?

I realize in the b/w image, the left side of the face is in the shadows, but something still makes me kinda like this shot.





Thanks,
Dean

I don't care much for #2 as it is a bit hard and contrasty and it needs better background separation.

#1 is interesting because it illustrates several of the basic problems when shooting a portrait of a young lady. First the lighting does not provide adequate background separation so her hairs blends right into the background. That's why a hair light or background light often needs to be used. The way the shoulders are posed makes her appear to be very round shouldered. Often in portraits to accentuate the lines and form one raises the shoulder on the left a bit to keep this rounding from occurring. I often find it useful when shooting these types of portraits to get the model into a fixed pose, shoot a shot, and then micro adjust just one element so the shot and shoot again. Do this for 20 or 30 shots with the same pose. Later in post work, you'll start to see how very small changes can suddenly change the impact of the photo.



Cheers,
rfs

Thank you, this is the kind of critiques I enjoy. I didnt notice the rounded shoulders til now. Funny how ya dont notice something til its pointed out.

I rekkon many might feel the same way about #2, just something about it I liked. (would be a dull world if everyone had the same points of view)

We plan on doing this shoot again in a couple weeks. Had some other images that I liked, but didnt have the lighting quite right.

Appreciate the comments.
Dean
