    Not sure which one is which. The ladies were amazing to work with. Mostly professional and certainly on top of their game. Nightmare on my end. I was down to one light. Thanks to my first and probably last Ebay (non) purchase of light bulbs for my Speedotron head. Plus one of my cards pooped out, but I was able to recover. Moral of the story; never cancel a shoot. Make due with what ya got.

    It would mean a lot to me to hear your thoughts on these photos.

    Please note that this is only a quickie edit. Basically I only give the full edit to the clients picks.

    Love & Bass

    I think they are fabulous! They look very comfortable in front of the lens. Something I rarely find with children. The first 2 have some lighting problems though. First one, the light is hitting her face in a way that makes her eye socket / cheek elevations show more than I would like to see. A quick edit in PS could tone that down. And the 2nd is just too bright on the left side. I am usually a lot more forgiving than most on here when it comes to hot spots, but that is just too bright. They still look fine though.

    The hair/back light is way too bright. You said you were down to one light, so is that natural light coming in? Either way, it's blowing out everything it's touching.
    Besides the highlight on the left side, that last shot is an absolute winner...well done.

    Thanks Mike! I may have to tone these down slightly. The light is flashed off a foamcore behind her and bounced off a foamcore in font of her face. I should read it again, but at the time I was getting a 3-12% total ink in her hair.

    Wow, these are excellent! Love the lighting and expressions. The thing that bugs me about the jumping one is the motion blur.

    Thank you! Not crazy about the blurr either. I would definitely like to try it again. I like the concept. Need less to say it was really tough getting that shot.
