Six shots from my first maternity shoot, just wanted some good C&C from you guys.
#1 looks to be a hair underexposed, I like it except you gave her a little hair cut.
#2 I see flash fired, but the left side of her face has some scattered shadows.
#3 I really like the composition of 3, sky is blows out though, and I would try to remove the lines on her forehead, nice focus on her eyes.
#4 Nice, the sun on the top left of her head is a little distracting,.
#5 I like 5, very nice. Very well exposed.
#6 Excellent, great capture, whose idea was this?
Good job on these, she has beautiful eyes, those catchlights look great in them.
All beautiful photos IMO. Number 5 winner!
Yes, unfortunately the location was VERY cluttered. I cropped as openly as I could, but any higher would have put some pretty distracting colors and objects in that were too big to edit out.
Thanks, I guess the credit for the pose would have to go to her, the image quality itself is a little bit of skill and a lot of luck, and the horses in the background was just something that happened and we took advantage of it.
I screwed up my numbering! I skipped #4, let me go correct it! It was 6 that I really liked, not 5....not that there is anything wrong with 5 either, but I like 6. lol
ohhh I like them all but if I had to say something I would say less photoshop on the eyes, they almost look like glam toddler eyes.
And the first pic, great pic, but I would have not used the belt
Ha ha... That was just something that kind of happened and we both went with it. One of my favorite shots from the whole shoot as well.
It definately worked, its a keeper. I am sure she loved it if she has seen them.
She has seen 3 of these and 1 other that I didn't include here for sure. Hopefully she saw the rest today. Had to mail the DVD to her because she lives a little too far to drive just to deliver it.
Her exact words were "they're perfect!" for the ones she did see
Maybe next time you could go for a sightly larger size, like say 2560 pixels on the long side.
I would also say for the horse shot to photoshop the gunk out of the eye and nose.... When I did click on it to make it larger I wanted to throw up looking at the eye boogers. It took away from the wonderful shot!
Just something maybe to get the picture looking amazing!
I really like number 6.
