    I think they're awful. :( It was a spur of the moment shoot and as much as I tried to hurry this girl, she took an hour and a half to get there and most of my light was GONE. These were shot after 8pm. I also had no assistant so no one to hold my reflector. I was hoping to bounce my flash off of it, but alas, it did not work out. So, yeah, you can tell me they suck but I'd also like some advice on how to do it better next time. Besides the obvious things I already mentioned.

    Oh yes and they're really soft. I had to jump down to a slower shutter speed and I also didn't have a tripod. Man, maybe I shouldn't have posted them at all!

    I think #2 is gorgeous. There is a vacancy in her eyes that is haunting.

    Thank you. I honestly didn't expect any good comments on these! lol! She's sad, yes. The man she plans to marry just joined the Army and is leaving for three years. :(

    No assistant, no tripod. Did you charge this person a fee for these shots or was this a freebie? If you charged them, then it's your responsibility to ensure that you have all your bases covered.

    Nope, the shoot was for me, not her. Not really what I wanted critique on, thanks. I wanted to do a shoot in some nice, golden sunset light. She offered to model for me. She took too long though and the epuipment I had with me for my own purposes was not what I needed for the lighting we ended up with. Trust me, if this was a paid shoot, I would have covered every possible base. As it was, I ran out with her after we saw a movie and I had what I had.

    WEll I think your location, posing, and composition are all good. As you said, the main problem is the lighting which you can't fix now. I would be upfront with them and say you need to reshoot.

    Thanks, Kelly. No, not a customer. Well, she is, just not for these. I'm shooting her and her family tomorrow but I will have everything I need because I know exactly what, where and when I'm shooting.:D

    That's cool then. As for a critique, let me suggest that next time try moving the model away from the wall a bit. She tends to blend too much with the background.

    I'll have more shots from this location tomorrow. It's fabulous! An old, abandoned catholic school. It's called "The Academy". I love shooting there.
