This girl came in with all the wrong clothing. My solution:
ehhhh not so much. The large jacket makes her head look disproportionately small.
what constitutes the wrong clothes? Looks like a studio setting. Was there a certain theme she was supposed to go for?
Yeah.... I'm seeing that too, but it was much worse with the cream colored sweaters.
In this case, we were shooting for her yearbook. The specs require a deep toned background. Shooting out of key just wasn't gonna cut it.
Must agree with the jacket, it's terrible. Everything else is spot on though.
You could try shrinking the jacket:
The image is great, but the jacket indeed makes her look a little over-sized. You could have adjusted the angle of which you took the photo by taking it from a higher angle to make her head more proportionate. I'm not sure what lens you used, but standing further away and the use of something like 150mm would also do wonders.
Well, it seems many are concerned about the jacket.
I'm certainly no slave to fashion, but I'm sure she shopped for just the right fit. Go figure.
Anyway... I used a 100mm... "full frame" sensor.
Thanks for the input!
Do you have a photo of her without the jacket, just so we can see her shape?
I don't think so... at least not a 3/4 legnth pose. This is a shot that I did after the session was over. I'll look when I get into work today. I'll post one with the light colored sweater.
I gotta agree about the jacket.
I think her red'ish shirt would have made for a bold picture against the blue.
