Alicia and I went to the Overture performing arts center in downtown Madison, WI. Our goal was to do commercial/fashion shots. You can see more at http://www.geocities.com/zytkiewicz/...cia2/index.htm







All critiques and comments welcome.

There are some problems with #2 and #3 with the exposure. About the only way you can get the shooting through the door shot to work is to have control of the lighting. Also you have to have control of the scene to keep people from walking into it as happened in #2. #3 is underexposed and the contrast is off. #1's lighting is okay but the background didn't work too well and their is no "sparkle" in the eyes.
#2 and #3 have the most potential from a pose standpoint and so if you work in the same area again, try to gain more control of the scene and work on exposure. If you can't control the scene on the door shot, then use a flash to get the fill you need and make the model pop.

I actually think #3 is an outstanding shot! You may want to play with the contrast just a touch, but very nice image.

My pick is on number 3 it has a great overall mood, I think that you should play a little bit with contrast there and work it a little more in PS

Thanks for the comments RFS. I can see now how her eyes don't really stand out. I'll try using a fill flash next time.

On the 2nd one the person in the background bothered me as well but it was the best image of the bunch. I tried editing her out but that looked even worse.

Some of the contrast problems on #3 may be because of my resizing and saving for web. When I look at the full image in photoshop there is more contrast.

Again, thank you, I really value your opinion.

The trick on #2 is to shoot manual. Use the on camera flash or on a bracket to light the model. You'll set the fstop according to what the flash requires and then you'll set the shutterspeed to get a good exposure of outside the door for that fstop. That means you'll have a well exposed street scene and your model will be brightly lit. Then you just wait the moment of opportunity to shoot without a person behind. There's considerable luck involved in all of this.
Cheers,
rfs

Thanks RFS,

That technique is similar to what Rolando calls "dragging the shutter" except in that this case I'm going to use a fast shutter to get a well exposed background?

I tweaked the contrast and exposure a little. Does this look better?
