    Ya, the color you changed the image to looks way to blue/green. I used custom WB and had it set just before the photos were shot.

    Nice picture, good placement of the subject. I like that you chose a simple background, but maybe the color is too neutral with the pink shirt. I'm still trying to get my head around color matching for portraits though, so I may be off on that.

    I agree, your original is good WB, and the edit posted is too blue/green.

    Agree the WB in the original is just fine.

    I really like the rusted metal background, but it may distract attention a bit too much from the portrait.

    Keep that up and you might need a second wife... :lol:

    I was looking to have her pop out of the picture. Might have been a little much but not sure.

    That's what she said! :lol:

    Whoever did the first edit....... blah.

    A couple of notes. When shooting people with rounder facial features, you can minimalize that by 1) shooting with your camera position slightly higher than eye level, 2) have them place their weight on their forward foot, 3) extend their chin forward towards the camera and 4) have the main lighting higher to create shadows to lengthen the facial features. Better yet, do not shoot a full face mask, rather try a 2/3 or profile position.

    Nice looking lady. Only needs a bit more time to become comfortable in front of the camera. The squint is not pleasing. Have her to exaggerate the open eye (surprised) look slightly.

    Thank you,

    She hates being in front of the camera. I'll keep all of that in mind. THe last image I posted said they would have rather seen the face more at a straight on angle. I can never win lol.

    She makes for good practice since she changes her look every week. She's 7mo pregnant so its like shooting a different person every week. :mrgreen:
