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.
