Hi,

I recently shot pictures Juliana near the Alberta Legislature on a cool day. All lighting was natural. At times, it was cloudy and overcast. It rained during the days before the shoot and just at the very end of the shoot.

Here are three pictures from the shoot, the first two being the more important.







Comments?

Best regards,
Kevin

They're all generally nice shots and she's very pretty. I only have a few minor criticisms:

1) Nice. I like the DoF and the composition although I think the hair starts to blend in with the background in places. But I know this was outside and in what looks to be natural light and those things can't always be helped.

2) I think i'd have gotten a bit lower and to the left so that the line crated by the top of the stairs didn't bisect her neck and to place her head between the columns rather than have one sort of growing out the top. If you placed her a bit right of center in the frame it think it would make the shot a little more dynamic.

3) Cropping out the top of her head is a little bothersome. You'd have been well served to have backed up to get all of her in the frame then cropped it to 5x4 to eliminate too much empty space on the sides.

Just my opinion, YMMV.

Yes, I noticed the blend as well.

Excellent comment. I hadn't noticed the top of the stairs bisecting her neck. I was trying to have her head placed in the top 1/3rd, using the thirds rule. But after reading your comment, I see that I should have been more careful yet.

Agreed, I should have backed up or had her move forward to capture her entire body.

Thank you for your comments. I appreciate them.

Best regards,
Kevin
