This was my first "model" shoot, very improvised. All shots were in a dorm hall. Terrible lighting, and the only things I had were my 50D and 28-135mm. I know these shots are BAD, I'm looking for some advice on HOW I could (if at all possible) I could have made these decent shots; IE where to put lighting, if I need an off camera flash, etc. Anything would help! Also, I know some of the shots are a little blurry; I was too worried about the lighting and totally forgot to worry about camera shake. I'm almost too embarrassed to post these, but I know I won't learn if I don't get some criticism. 1. With a flash. Very washed out, I think.. And the hallway behind her is way too bright. I tried turning up the shutter speed in other shots to light her up, but keep the hallway dark, but the highest the shutter would go was 250! 28mm f/3.5 1/100s 2. No flash. She's way too dark here.. 28mm f/3.5 1/50s 3. With flash, in the elevator. Flash bounced off of the metal walls and wreaked havoc with the picture. 28mm f/3.5 1/20s 4. No flash. Her face is way underexposed. How could I have given her face/body some light without lighting up the entire scene? 28mm f/3.5 1/20s Any C&C (and even gear recommendation) is greatly appreciated! Also, all of these were shot in JPEG, no PP.
