There's good seperation of model to background and floor. Not sure is this is a cut out though but if it is then it's handled well. What is disconcerting is the expanse of white against the white of the site's background...no deliniation of image frame. The other thing I see is a rapid fall off of light from head to toe. I would have liked to see a more even coverage. Still it's a good image.

I have no issue with the composition but I would have preferred it to be a bit tighter. I like the fact she is turned into the frame. If you where looking for the backgournd to be white, then the color is off as I see the yellow in the background. I am on a color corrected display so it may be easier for me to see it though. It is apparent that she was placed on that background though and/or you eliminated her shadow that would appear based on the light position.

On the lighting, there is a significant fall off because of the single light. Her legs are significantly darker than her arms. You may want that.... don't know..... however, with this light position you get a few negatives. For example, you see a bit of a belly. You see the form of her belly button. However, at the same time you get a better look for the design on the upper portion of the dress.

If you have room, step way back and zoom in.

Using such a short focal length creates distortion. The leg looks much larger in comparison to the body, and the elbow (viewer's left) appears large when compared to the other.

Well, considering the space you are showing it's a damn good effort!

Space can be a problem, for sure. Just so my comments are understood, they are meant to hopefully help you with the problem, and not to be taken as being hypercritical.

Your first shot was at 24mm focal length, and the distortion is obvious.
The second is at 70mm and very little distortion is noticeable. It seems also that the camera is more level in the 2nd shot, and you are shooting slightly down on the first one. That is probably because you are farther back, on #2. Since you are farther back, even if the camera is at the same height, it is not as noticeable, due to the distance from subject to camera. So much for all that.



The white background is 5 feet wide? Whatever the width, you must have had to extend it in #1 (using Photoshop).

I can see the item in the foreground is some sort of a wall or partition, and you may be shooting through a doorway, in #2. I guess taking it out would be a problem; however, you can also just clone out the foreground. I don't believe it would be much more PS work than what you are doing to extend the background. So if you can shoot from the same distance as you are in #2, you will be able to eliminate the distortion on full length shots.


Just some suggestions. My first "camera room" was about 12' x 12', and that was before digital, so removing any foreground was expensive.

I'd say it's a great stock shot for something.
