    Hi all,

    I have not been here for a while, so I have a lot of catching up to do..
    One thing is for sure, I missed the board a lot, but I was so busy. So please forgive me.

    Finaly I Bought a Digital Camera.

    I bought:

    Canon EOS 300D Body
    Canon EX 420 Flash
    SIGMA 24-70 EX F2.8
    SIGMA 70-200 EX APO F2.8

    Still need to buy an MACRO Lens.


    Well below you see the first results with my New Canon Camera.
    Hope you like what you see and ofcourse Photo critique is alway's welcome.

    And The second One...

    I know that the second picture has a litle over Exposure on her Back, but somehow it does not realy disturb me. What do you think?


    Kind regards,

    her overexposured back doesn't disturb me too, but according to first one, I would put the model a bit more on the right to catch the whole arm

    Very nice - I like the model - particularly in the first shot - I like the expression you've captured.

    nice shots. the model is beautiful and the pics are too.

    the first one is great because we have an idea where the character is looking at.

    the second one is great too. the burned back isn't so disturbing due to the (almost) b/w editing.

    The model is awesome! :twisted:

    I love both photos. Can I see more PLEEESE! :twisted:

    The firs has great composition, while the second has you looking deeper into it to try to distinguish features that are blurred due to your dof settings.

    Keep posting.

    The model is beautiful in a refreshingly natural way. With that said and the drool wiped up I think I like the first one better. Great expession composition. The second one is very nice but my first impression is that it is a very unnatural pose or an attempt to create a "candid" shot. So I'd go with shot #1. And I'd definately like to see more images of this model. :wink:

    WOW! The lighting technique is marvelous. The quality of the image, the Model, her pose, the composition, and her expression are top shelf!

    #1: I see nothing that I would change, but since the model has very attractive shoulders (as evidenced in the 2nd image), I wonder how it would look if #1 image revealed her left shoulder.

    #2: I like the crop. I like the model and her expression. I like the lighting. I never noticed the blowout on her back until someone mentioned it--I was so stricken by the 3/4 shot of head and shoulders, my concentration never made it to her back.

    I'm fascinated by the quality of your equipment and it's expert use! Would you submit the exif in those two shots? I also have a canon 300d, but I've never been satisfied with the quality of the images that it produces. They can always be improved with post processing.

    In the two shots above, what exposure profiles were you using? Were you using the default profile #1 or were you using a custom profile?

    Thanks,

    Love the first pic: have any of the same with different fstop? Would love to see it with background slightly more in focus, only because there is a recognizable shape that makes it hard on the eyes. Would be cool if you could photoshop her out (background girl).
