    This is my second shoot with Brittney. This was my first time to work with a makeup artist, look at those eyes! We had a blast!

    Like #7 the best, it shows of the eyes much better.
    IMHO unless you are shooting to sell jeans, get in close to show the models personality or at least eliminate a lot of unnecessary detail in backgrounds. Like in shot #5 the fencing above her head is quite distracting, pulls your eye off the model. #6 is the same, no reason to include the distracting window to the left. Not all images must contain the entire frame, creative cropping increases the impact of the image.

    I'm going to say that I have what some might consider a harsh critique of these images. If you're so inclined you can PM me or I can post it, but my days of unsolicited "brutally honest critiques" are numbered.

    Yea, I can see what you mean. I try not to frame too close so that I can crop for different size prints. I'm curious to see if others think it is distracting too? I am a texture freak, so I like it in the two cases you mentioned, but I understand it is more about the model than the background. I also try to vary up the shots on distance and angle from the model.

    Ok, I went and played with the cropping and you were right, it does look better tighter in. I was using my 35mm vs. my 50mm since I was having to shoot closer to her than normal, so I think that threw me off, cause my other pictures don't seem to be as distant.

    #7 is best. The jeans are so distracting, they take away from the model.

    i agree with the rubbertree, the jeans are too distracting.

    #7 is my favorite as well. The shadow on 3 bugs me a bit. I would instruct her to give you some different facial expressions. Her facial expression is the same in EVERY shot. Maybe a softer expression on a few of the close up shots?!

    Oh yea, I didn't see that. I have a couple others that are similar that have a much smaller shadow. The sun was straight up noon right there, so the light was a nightmare, and the shade was very limited.

    I absoutely agree with her facial expressions as well. In another shoot, I worked on that more with her, but it seemed like a weird place to have her really smile. I will see what else we can get out of her.

    Maybe my opinion doesn't matter to you much, but I'm only saying what I was told early on when I joined. Your "watermark" at the bottom of the pics is annoyingly huge and definitely takes away from the pics also. You may want to try shortening it and making it smaller, like use something in a corner or something like I do now. I'm aware of the importance of having your name on the photo, but a little discretion would be better in my opinion

    I'm curious...what was the deal with the jeans?

    Was the photoshoot for someone who wanted those jeans in there. Or was that a decision by you or the model? Obviously if its for a client who sells those jeans then there's nothing you can do. But as others have said, they are incredibly distracting and almost make the girl look kinda dumb. Definitely takes away from the photos.
