    Here are a few from a studio session I did lately. The softness is on purpose. We were going for a soft, silky, and slightly dark look. Hopefully, I used the shadows effectively. C&C always welcome. Thanks for looking! :)

    These look a tad overprocessed for my tastes. I would have preferred softness via some kind of diffused glow or blur so that detail is still visible.

    Nice work on the lighting in number 2 and 3. I would have hairlighted the first one enough so you could see where the head ends though.

    I think #2 belongs on canvas.

    Nice work, as usual.

    I like them all, but the one thing that really stands out at me is the pose in number 2. I think it makes her nose look a little bigger than it probably is.

    I find the hot spot on her chin to be a little distracting too.

    Nice job overall though, and as long as the customers happy, that's what matters

    i dont like commenting on pictures when i couldnt produce something even half as good, but theres 2 things that stand out to me in the first picture that are making me wonder.

    her eyes in that shot look a little light, and her teeth look pink. im not sure if it my monitor or not, so i thought i would point it out.

    if it is just my monitor, it may be time to get a new one. if it isnt, then those are the only 2 things i would fix. i like all 3 though. the soft / silky look works IMO.

    No, it isn't just your monitor, it was the very first and most immediate thing that I noticed about these pics when I came for a first glance early this morning, too. You must do something about her teeth and surrounding mouth area in 1. The teeth are decidedly pink.

    Of these three the last is my favourite.
    The second has too many hot spots on her skin.

    Hey, thanks for all the replies guys! :)

    Thanks Jeff. I agree, I'm still experimenting with studio lighting. And yes, she was very happy with these. She said she loved them. So, thats a good thing. ;-)

    Thanks for the critique John. Pink teeth, hmm, I didnt see that, but thanks for pointing that out. Thanks for the kind words also. :)

    Hi Corinna. I agree about the hot spots. Thanks for pointing that out. Again, I'm still experimenting with studio lighting. I value your feedback.

    Thanks JIP!

    Thank heip. I was hoping the lighting worked somewhat. I dont usually have my photos this soft. But she liked them a lot. I am definitely going to chalk it up for experience in this case. Thanks for the nice words. :)

    She is very pretty. Lovely eyes! I like the processing on these. I do notice the pink teeth on my monitor too but my monitor is screwy. I don't mind the hot spots in number 2 i think they add to the lighting.
    and i love the pose in number three.
