    Hi all,

    Las sunday I had a photoshoot with a very nice girl and beautifull hair.
    I like the result, but I keep strugeling with the lightning.

    On some photo's you see that parts of the background are over exposed.
    I am glad that it is the background and not the model, but I never seem to get that part completely right.

    Is there a technique to fix this?

    Anyway I hope you like the pictures.

    On this first Image you see what I mean with the background. It does not realy bother me, but how can I prevent this from happening in the future?
    Please also judge me on the picture itself.

    And the third Image:

    Hope to get some response.

    Kind regards,

    Jean-Paul

    First of all, the subject fits into that background beautifully! Hair, clothes, skin tones, and background...the colors just go together so well! I would like to be able to see her eyes though, especially in that last one. The eyes could put so much more feeling into the photo. Other than that...I dunno, maybe blur the backround a bit more. Nice shots!

    I agree, well done with the model, hair, background, tones...etc.

    It looks like you are using natural light. I don't know if speeding up the shutter would help with the background high lights or not. Mostly, you have to be aware of stuff like that when you are shooting.

    Something like this might not be too hard to clone out in PS.

    For future reference, try to post only one photo at a time in the critique gallery. That way we can give more specific critique to each photo.

    Hi there Core,

    Thanks for the comment..

    Hi big Mike,

    I tried to speed up the shutter speed, but it did not have the wanted effect. I posted these 3 images to give you all an impression of the shoot...

    Hey there, You did a spectacular job on these! Composition, DOF, and the model are great! I see what you mean on the highlights in the background being blown up. Thats should be an easy fix though.

    Nice work!

    BTW, what camera/lens were you using?
