I'm not quite sure what your goal was here. The color balance seems way off, but perhaps you did this on purpose. The eyes are not showing up very well and no catch lights. Cropping on #2 would work much better above the knees. Also, I visited your website, but most of it did not seem to be working and it was running very very slow.

I agree about the color balance as it is it just looks unfinished and frankly a too flat and lacking appropriate contrast. But the biggest issue for me is i do not think shooting from below with the lighting coming from above with this girl is going to provide the most flattering angles.

The result in the first shot is to have shadowed her eyes with the light behind her brow and and excessively harsh (for her features) shadows on her left face. The second shot she tilted her head upward toward the light and brought light into her eyes but as with the first your shooting angle ends up shooting up her nose with her eyes nearly closed because she is looking down at you and it is quite natural for the lids to close a bit when we point our eyes downward.

she looks quite capable and i am sure you enjoy working with her.

Don't get me wrong - there is nothing in these two shots i have not done lots of times in the past and cannot suggest i will not do again but i try to direct the model to not to lift her head to show me the nostrals and if it persists i fix my lighting and shoot from above.

something to satisfy the rules

i went this direction with it...


http://chadboutin.com/briefs/

I do like lighting strong form the top..

its not flattering most of the time, but I like the gloomieness of it, the pools of shadow..

I just love shooting unflattering ways to produce beauty..

just a juxtoposition i guess...

Looks like your choice of lighting makes her look either sleep depraved or worse. I understand the top light to create drama but you should have reflected some of it back onto her face to erase the bags under her eyes.

I certainly was going for the mood with the light.. I tend to really simplify things..

this is how it probably will end up..

It seems like fashion photographers like their lights high a lot of the time to give it that moody look. I've tended to like placing my lights fairly high up lately, too. I dunno, just an observation.

Oh, and yeah, I know what you mean about a favorite model, too...
