Hi, so here is some pictures i did with some models. I would like your critics please. Any critic will be good. I posted a lot of them for you to critic my overall work also, you can see my style with those. Also i am trying to become pro here so can you suggest me the next material i should buy to go to the next level? thanks a lot! (only the two last pictures have been retouched)

I'm trying to go pro too, so let's see what I can suggest. Since you say you're looking to go pro, there's lots of things to consider.

First, since you said only the last two were edited, well, I'd suggest to not show any work that's not ready to be shown.

Also, it looks like a lot of them have exposure (mostly underexposure) problems. (Keep in mind, I'm all for dark and moody images, but there's a difference between "dark and moody" and "underexposed".) Not trying to bust on you or anything, just telling what I see.

What type of photography do you want to do for a living? Portraits? Or something commercial?

I'm going to school for photography now (almost done finally!!!), and what they tell me all the time is "shoot, shoot, shoot". So I'd suggest to get the technical aspects down first, keep shooting, then shoot some more. Assist a working photographer whose work you admire if you can.

That's all I can think of for now (and plus I gotta go to bed!), but if I think of anything else I'll post it here.

Thank you very much that is the type of critic i am looking for. I think the underexposition is due to my 3 lights that come from a chinese brand! i don't think they are strong enough..what do you suggest to help me with underexposition.

I actually would like to make a living as a portrait, glamour photographer and don't know where to spend my next buck. More lights? Ring flash? Big soft box? Gels?

Thanks everyone for your help

I would say the first thing to get would be a light meter which will help a great deal with exposures. The next would be a good editing program, you should be able to improve the look of these shots with a little photoshop.

Keep a close eye on your cropping as well... no charge to do that!

I'd agree with Steve on all counts. No matter what brand you're using, the light meter will be helpful in getting those exposures right.

So other than the light meter and a good editing program, I'd consider looking into some good books on lighting. This is a great one:

http://www.amazon.com/Master-Lightin...ef=pd_sim_b_16

This one's also a favorite of mine:

http://www.amazon.com/Photographing-...4517603&sr=1-1

This one I like for beginning lighting:

http://www.amazon.com/Beginners-Guid...517693&sr=1-11

You can do a lot with the three lights you have. Once you get that down, only then would I think about investing in more equipment. Good luck!

How many watts are those lights pushing?
this was done with one light, 150ws

powered by a inverter plugged to my car battery.
i ask because i can give you some suggestions to adjust your lighting. I use two 150ws (sp studio) strobes for background, sometimes one, and a abr800 for main. (alienbee)
