Hi All,

I'm new here and to the world of glamour photography (I've landed here from the world of wedding photography)... Just wanted to get some feedback on my first glamour shoot to see what you all think. Here are a couple of shots from the shoot...

I did some self critiquing and here's what I've come up with...
For #1, her feet are positioned rather awkward (both facing inwards) and I should have photoshopped out the hose on the right of the photo.
For #2, perhaps her right leg should have been more visible? I dunno... Need some help here!




Ummm... you might want to zip that thing up... I can see your Pocket Wizard hanging out!

Overall I like 'em.

I agree with your self critique of #1. While I like the falloff of the shadows on the model's right side into the dark cityscape... maybe just a tad more fill to bring her right torso and arm up a little might have worked. Another option might have been to position her to get at least some of her right arm into the main light...

The blown highlights of the foreground bedding in front of the model are more bothersome to me than the pose in #2. You picked a tough challenge for yourself with the contrast of the very dark skinned African American model against the stark white sheets. But this can be overcome... I'll bet some of the pro's here can offer specific ideas on how to work with the situation.

But in the meantime...

There's a really nice basic lesson about main or key lighting in the Videos > Professional Lighting Solutions - StudioStyles Studiotip 1 - The Main Light

Its the first video tip in the section. Key points are aiming and controlling mood of lighting with main light. A lot of the points made in the video tip might have served this shot well.
