For your C&C
im not sure but it seems like there is a white balance issue ....might just be my screen im on a labtop
No it's not just you. There is an intended magenta hue. If you'll notice there IS true white in the picture, it's the nuetral colors that have been adjusted to the magenta side.
All the upper tones look pretty blown out everywhere--the truck, the sidewalk, her blouse,her hair. Cute shoes she's wearing too!
oh then your really gonna hate this one:
I like the first one.....although parts are blown out and what not, a lot of fashions top companies have photography that looks like that.
Shoes would have been nice though. lol
Issues of colour and hihglights aside, I like the pose and the lighting on her face is good.
Take a look at any fashion magazine, take a look at the ads. There is a frequency of cut off limbs, colors being off and highlights that are overblown. It's just a style.
Sometimes I think people forget that a photograph has a meaning, it's used to convey a certain EMOTION. If the problems with the photo are distracting, it can be a problem, but sometimes the "problems" can help to convey that emotion.
I am not saying this picture is technically perfect, far from it, but it's my attempt to do this; convey a certain feeling/emotion, and I am trying to use certain things (blown out highlights and a magenta feel) to help with that.
It depends on where you cut the apendage off.. Never cut an arm/leg/etc off at a joint, it just looks odd. In the first photo, it looks as though she's floating down the sidewalk, not walking. The clipping whites are very distracting too. I'd say it's a poor attempt at whatever style you're trying to acheive and I don't mean that in a douche bag way.
As for the second photo, it's a pretty trashy shot, not something I'd ever deliver to a client, or even take.
LOL Trashy? As in her bra is showing? Really?
blown out, poor WB correction and the second shot is a horrible angle on this girl
