    I have been shooting a couple models for the last couple months and I'm feeling like I'm getting better but I would like some opinions or suggestions.

    These don't seem to be in focus.

    The second shot, for me, is the best by far. The others look a bit soft and the models don't seem to pop. Of course I'm no expert. What did you use for lighting?

    You've missed focus on most of them, they lack lighting and the wrinkled sheet is not doing you any favours. I take it you're going for a "men's magazine" style? The only thing with that is that people will not take it seriously as art, they will just see you as a perv with a camera (unless you're getting paid to do it). I would try some less obvious poses and a different setting (with more light).

    This. You definitely need more light in there. The light in the first one is probably best, but it's not actually lighting up your model very well. The boobs seem to be more in focus, but their faces are not, except for the second one which is the best of the lot. And your backdrop....the wrinkles taking away from your models - especially the fold lines. If you want to go for a wrinkled bedsheet look, consider using an actual bed.

    Thanks for the replies so far! I like taking these shots for starters, I am not a perv with a camera, not that you were implying anything. I am still using auto focus on my camera so the focus is beyond me! I use manual settings on my camera with an iso of 100 for still and 400 for anything that moves. I have 6 lights in the room 1 strip light on the left wall, 1 strip light on the right wall, 2 strip lights behind me and 1 constant to the front with one constant behind. I have umrellas on the constants and I have been thinking I need to iron the backdrop. I have taken other shots that are less odvious, let me edit them and I will post them. I appreciate the help and opinions.

    I'm curious...when you look at the pictures you posted here, do they look in focus to you?

    I can see the focus problem, it shouldn't be a problem since I use autofocus. I never shoot the picture unless I get the camera beep first. I check my iso setting and my f-stop, looking at my light meeter inside my lens. I don't get it!

    The beep means "something's" in focus, but maybe not the bits you want. For example, the first pic, her arms look like the focal point to me, while it should be her face. What f-stop are you using? If you use a smaller aperture, more of the model will be in the focus range.

    I was updating, I appologize. Everything is back up!

    I washed and ironed my backdrop, model Mindy will be back this week for more pictures. Is there anything I can try to improve my work?

    Below are two more pics from the same set done this week, the first is consistant with the above while the second is a close up and only resized, not edited.

    I can clearly see the miss focus in this shot, I still don't understand the miss focus with af on.
