I shot three setups this past Saturday and I'd like to have some of your critiques on lighting, posing, etc. Thanks to everyone who looked through them.



Intentionally grainy in case you wondered.

A lot of people have looked and not replied...I'll see if I can help a little...

I think the subjects look soft--not physically--but the focus. The second is sharper, but the grain doesn't really allow it to stand out as sharper. Don't get me wrong--I like the grain in the image. The first and last images look a little too low on light. Not enough exposure for my likings--but maybe that was your intent? I think the third pose is the most 'fun' and as well--the most interaction with the lens.

Just my two cents worth and hope this helps...

#1 does appaer to be "soft". #3 the pose is nice, but it appears to be a bit dark. The grain in #2 doesn't fit the images in IMO.

On a positive note a least you have some photos to post. Most of mine are elf portraits or macro photos. I'm still working to get my first model.

IMO the photos do look a little soft. In #1, I like how she seems to glow, but the shadow from her arm is distracting. That could be fixed with a little post-processing work. But I like the pose, the cropping and the effect.

I don't really care for #2. Her left hand is lost and it seems like a snap shot to me.

#3 is too dark for my taste (but that may be what you were looking for). I like her expression but I don't like how her left sholder looks. I think the colors you chose for her dress and the background go very well with her auburn hair and skin complextion.

I wish I could offer advice on how to correct these issues, but I too am learning.

Thanks for sharing.

it's evident you're going after a more creative approach to the lighting and i applaud that. these images do have a few problems on the technical side--exposure and focus--rather than the creative side. in #1, focus is a little soft and there's no detail in the blacks. #2 looks soft. #3 is the most interesting but it seem underexposed and color rendition doesn't seem right. personally, i think there's a bit too much headroom in the composition of all three. also, in #3, beware the "amputated arm syndrome."
