    I was very happy with this set, in under three hours we had several very distinct looks. Had the help of a hair stylist and make up artist. Never leave home without them!
    I used a Nikon D80 with 50mm 1.8/f and my SB-800 flash in an umbrella.
    Also, I shot everything in and around my house and the last "studio" looking shot was actually shot on my bed... okay so that sounded a little creepy but I don't have money for a studio so whatever works, right?! LOL
    Let me know what you think!

    Eeeeyow. I love the last one. I think it could have used a some more fill from the left though to decrease contrast, and just a little more on the hair, but it's still a superb shot. The makeup really makes it.

    Only thing I might do, is crop #4, so that you get rid of that black bar on the bottom (which screams "Hey I'm in a room somewhere!") and instead just have her floating on a fluffy. . .thing.

    so it's not just the boobs? LOL, yeah, this shot really showed her personality

    Thanks, yeah lighting was a real challenge here. I was using a single SB-800 mounted to an umbrella and an incandescent lamp without it's shade to provide hair lighting, and there was minor ambiance room lighting. I need more lights... :grumpy:

    I was really fighting with that and hit myself in the head a couple times for not seeing that in the shot the first time, Cropping just doesn't work and still keep it in 8x12 format. ::sigh:: LOL, I like the floating on a fluffy...thing!

    This is going to sound negative, even though I don't mean it that way.

    How the heck to you get a model to agree to come back to your apartment and lay on your bed in her underwear for a shot?

    You are quite good at persuasion, sir.

    LMAO!!! I totally agree with you, it is creepy as hell! I never thought I'd have a model at my place, let alone in my bed! Truthfully, I had my girlfriend there, my makeup artist, and my hair stylist (all female) so she was very comfortable. Her attitude had a lot to do with it as well, she trusted in my eye and was open to everything. Definitely would work with her again.

    I've gotta go with #3 as well. It's sexy while also showing personality.

    I think they're all very good....agree with the black border problem, but still a fine shot....I like the dark/high contrast look of the last shot, for me it's in keeping with her look.

    Thanks guys (and sexy girl!), I'm enjoying the critiques as well as seeing which ones are most popular. What kind of lighting do you guys prefer?
