    sorry, have to say it, she looks miserable. Nothing in the eyes that says "want".

    Nothing against you as the photog, but all in the subject. She seems bored out of her gourd. The shots also feel a bit soft to me as well, could be more crisp.

    I could be way off base, no harm intended. just my novice $.02

    I agree she looks bored. On the other hand, if my wife did a photoshoot like this for me, I wouldn't care what look she had on her face.

    Agreed and the last one is out of focus the subject is the eyes, not some eyelash and most of the eyebrow.

    I also believe you should use more dramatic lighting, Use a kicker in there and a key with no fill or something, something to make it more...enticing than the flat light that's as is.

    yea her expression isn't great in some of them, but for a wall poster i think the first one is ok... with a few adjustments ;)....


    Before:

    After:

    This was just using levels and curves to begin with... then using curves adjustments on selected areas. The white clothing was masked at all times to avoid blow out. Then sharpen to finish, a bigger file would give better results as i have introduced some pixelation here.
    Also i think you must have whitened the eyes?... i had trouble trying to keep the brightness down and even had to burn the white back a little, so in the original file you just wanna dodge them a little but not alot.

    I do agree with you all about her expression. I asked her if she wanted to smile in them but she said she wanted a "serious" look.

    A few of them are a tad soft. I am ordering lighting but as of now I only have my flash and I used natural light. I know lighting would of made this alot better.

    I am still pretty happy with they the way they came out and I KNOW her boyfriend will be happy too. :)

    I agree about her expression too. Her face doesn't say "sexy", it says "get this photog out of my face"...the only one I really like is the last one, not because of your work, but because her expression is more soft and her eyes stand out more.

    Here is one of her smiling but it doesn't have that "I'm sexy" feel to it.

    I actually used a Victoria Secret Catalog for inspiration. Its wasn't so bad taking the photos and I was just unsure of "poses" for this style portrait shoot.
