personally, i like the last one best. leastwise, compositionally and that it's shot from a very low angle... i'm not crazy about the arm and hand placement, the spill on her arm, and the loss of detail in the shadows. were you using a polarizing filter? that sky could certainly be bluer.

Thanks Jimmy. No filter, just shot at 1pm, the worst part of the day. I wanted to shoot low, but I was on some steps that forced me lower than preferred to force the bg in frame. I had a scrim, but shooting from this angle with only a 28-80mm and directly overhead sun kept placing part of it in the shot. I wanna revisit this spot with the sun at a lower angle and cross light with a strobe, but just haven't gotten around to it yet.

Hi Jimmy,

I seem to recall, after reading Skin as well as Light Science & Magic, that using a polarizer when photographing people is not the best thing to do. I tried to find the quote in both books, but was unsuccessful.

Light from skin is mostly diffuse and unpolarized, so one would think that a polarizer should have little or no effect. But when I Googled "skin polarizer filter" (w/o quotes), there seemed to be plenty of warnings about photographing people using a polarizing filter. It seems that if a polarizer is used, then it should be a warming polarizer. I just have circular polarizers.

I am curious as to your thoughts.

Best regards,
Kevin

I had a polarizer I used on a 4x5 when I shot alot with it and found that on slide film I coud adjust the thing so I could get some beautful skin tones in the middle of the day with it. I even used it alot on bw 4x5 and got some great results with it. Haven't tried it with digital yet. Guess I have to get one and see what it will do.
