    Two shots from my first model session - studio area was an unfinished basement and white background was from my reflector . . C&C welcome.


    I know the name on the watermark is different from the one I use here - I got married!!!! Sorry I had to use a watermark at all but I was told that some people out there steal other peoples photographs . . made me all sad. Not that anyone here would but ya know, just wanted to protect my work.

    Thanks for taking the time to look.

    I understand the watermark thing - I do it too. ;)

    I think the second one is just smashing - and I never use that word. :)

    The cut off head and skin tone dont work for me in #1, but I really like the lighting, pose, and vignette in #2. Nice job!

    The second one is really nice - I think the background is perfect whereas the bright white in the first one isn't doing it for me.

    She is pretty and the shots are ok... but she has a nose that you have to be careful how you light her face or it makes it seem a very narrow and long. In the 2nd shot the highlight on the right side (her right side) causes her nose to blend in with her face, which results in a line down the middle that makes her nose look half the width that it is. The pose is good and I love her hair although if the bare shoulder was less obvious it would help also. Maybe you can tone that down a bit so it doesn't complete for attention with the face?

    Hopefully you took this as constructive, which is how I mean it to be.

    Nice posing and lighting. I see this type of crop(in fashion) all the time. It works for mags but not if you're framing.
    Nice work!!

    Thank you everyone for taking the time to post - the cc is good. It was my first time with an actual model so I wasn't expecting to nail it on my first try. I know that I could've done a lot of things better (in hindsight).

    Also, she was new to it - so, between the both of us, it was pretty funny - she didn't know how to pose and I wasn't much help in telling her.

    Do you guys have any tips on achieving a good pose/look from the model? I didn't really know how to inspire her and just getting these shots was very hard. In many of them, her eyes were "dead".

    Anyway, I'm rambling - and Mike Jordan, thank you for your suggestions . . I did darken her shoulder a bit below - maybe it works better now?

    Yes, with the shoulder being a bit darker, it is less distracting and lets the face get the attention like it should.

    Great shots, but my fave is #2. She looks stunning in this one.
