Hello everyone,

I posted this thread on Photo Critique forums and did not receive any comments as to date. I am not sure if that was the place to post or here was. I am new to Glamour 1 and on Nikonians there are specific places to post. So, if this is the correct place I would like your comments on the following.

I am Anthony a Northern Kentucky University student. I have just started Heavenly Light Productions, LLC and am a partner with Tim Downer of Blues Photography (also a NKU student). We are just starting to be paid for our work and want to bump up the skills and professional look of our images. I am really trying to break the Photoshop skills which makes your images look as great as they do. If you can give me any tips (skin soft, color, exposures, etc...) or comments on improvement on these two first attempts at glamour images I will put it to good use.

I currently use the Nikon D-100 soon to be D-200 (money / student issue) and the Kodak DCS PRO 14/n the studio light are White lighting (NKU's). Various Nikon lens.

****:
Melissa = 1/125ss, 5.6f, ISO 80, 80-400mm vr (Handheld), Metering= spot
Flash exposure Bias +.05 on SB-80DX unit (not through camera) No reflectors
Skin softened by Median / pixles 1. Masked out for sharp areas.



Crystle = 1/125ss, 5.6f, ISO 80, 50mm or 28-105mm Macro, metering = spot
(Studio is NKU's)

#2 of Crystle is the clear winner. The shot of Melissa has a couple things that I think could be improved; turn her face away from the camera a bit (your left in this case) to narrow the profile, and don't use quite so much diffusion.

@ BGPhoto,

Thanks for the reply and input. I did think I used too much diffusion but, only could choose pixel 1 on Median. Thinking about it I could have used a copy layer and dropped the Opacity. Duh! lol... If you don't mind, what equipment do you use for a glamour shot. I have been told I could with my equipment do these images. But, I never get the look like you and others do. I think it may be my workflow / PP skills where it is lacking the professional touch.
