    I normally use a bunch of lighting and haven't shot natural light since I first bought my camera. I think they came out pretty well. C&C appreciated!

    I like them all. She's georgous BTW. #3 is my fav as the eyes pop nicely and her skin is perfectly exposed. I think the light used in #1 could have used some diffusion as it seems a bit harsh. Take my ccomments with a pinch of salt as I am not a pro. Good job.

    You're a very lucky man. #'s 1 & 3 are my favorites for different reasons. #1 for the hard back light on her hair and the railing she's holding. Personally I would have liked to see her right eye but that's just me. #3 has great exposure and just a tiny bit of contrast on the left side. Great shots.

    #1 is awesome.
    #2 seems overexposed. But I like how her face is in focus an the rest of her body is out of focus. Kinda wondering how you did that?
    #3 Screen door seems a bit distracting (open it) aslo with her hand up (put it down).

    Im not a pro.
    Just my 2 cents.

    Shes gorgeous! great model. :)

    I love the second shot. Her hair, complexion and lighting, are all damn near perfect. Nice bokah, and very natural pose. :thumbup:

    #1 and #3 LOVE her eyes!
    ...as for #3 , the door is VERY distracting... but it doesnt ruin the picture.

    very nice shots!

    I agree the screen door in #3 is a nuisance but not too terrible.

    I love #1 but I too would like to see the other eye, and the overexposed look of #2 works for me. Was that from PP?

    She is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

    the pose in 1 seems a little bit unnatural but the rest are very nicely lite. How much PP do you do cause these seem very soft and almost have a surreal smoothness to them

    These were all natural light. So they shouldn't be super soft... no softboxes or anything. But in photoshop, I don't do much besides toning down the redness in skin tones. Thus making them more flat, with a black and white layer. This might be what you are referring to. I got the technique from the Dolce & Gabbana photographer. He does it in every ad he makes.



    And the second picture I over-exposed on purpose to give it that vogue-look.. That picture was almost straight out of camera with the exception of some blemish fixing. I NEVER blurr my photos anymore...

    And for the person that asked about the depth of field. I shot it at f2.8 I believe and almost 200mm with a 70-200 2.8G VR II. The large aperture in combo with the telephoto gives you a small depth of field.

    Would it be possible for you to elaborate about this technique a little more? I really love this pictures. I use elements so I don't exactly know if I can do that black and white layer you are talking about. Or I just don't understand.

    Just remember....

    It doesn't matter how beautiful a woman is. Somewhere, somebody is tired of putting up with her sh!t. :lol:

    Nice shots, BTW.
