Some images from a shoot yesterday.
A few more at Flickr.
Great look, great pping. (did you use a plugin?)
IMO, #2 is hurt by missing her feet but all are really good.
I started with a High Key preset called Bleach Bypass that a friend showed me, and then cranked it up from there.
Although the large blown out areas are technically bad, I think the look of and feelings in those images are very nice.
I do agree with The_Traveler that the missing foot hurts the #2 image a bit. And I think I would prefer #3 if there was a bit more detail in her hair. As in #2, for example. But you are the artist...
The blow-out was a choice. I did not want to capture the background, it is boring yet busy and distracting. I had reflectors and strobes with me, but decided right there to go high-key and lose any detail. Hence the shallow DOF, too.
The cut off legs were NOT a choice. My only sufficiently wide lens would have made her look freakishly stretched, and the space is incredibly narrow - there was no way to step back.
2 and three are awesome!
Btw i must say the you must have made a great connection with the model because she looks incredibly relaxed, in a fashiony sort of way.
I love the lighting on these.
I would like #2 a lot too but for some reason i feel like its a bit soft. # 2 and 3 seems sharper too me.

love the high key on these.
