    Worked with new lighting equipment and a makeup artist

    Woah that is a huge difference. Thanks for the visual! Here's one more shot from the second session I did yesterday(before I posted here) I tried touching it up a bit better. Unfortunately her makeup was more caked than the first model's so I had a hard time :/ I've tried skin softening with...

    Worked with new lighting equipment and a makeup artist

    I know but I don't want to photograph for vogue :) It's just not my cup of tea. That's fantastic! I see my MUA has some work to do....

    Worked with new lighting equipment and a makeup artist

    Thanks for the encouragement :) I am constantly thanking myself for not making photography a career choice because I think I'd be jaded/stressed out of my mind by some of the critique I receive. The fact that I do this as a hobby means I can progress at my own pace and have fun with it. I take...

    Worked with new lighting equipment and a makeup artist

    Okay, so I probably didn't do as good a job in PP spotting out her blemishes. The MUA also is not a professional, she's just starting out so I can understand why flaws are more apparent.(this wasn't paid, mostly for fun on both our parts). But what is so wrong with the actual makeup? I'm no...

    Worked with new lighting equipment and a makeup artist

    Actually I shot all of these with my kit lens(18-55). most were on the wide end(18-30mm). Maybe it was the angle I was shooting her from that gives the wierd proportions? TBH I don't really see what you're talking about... And is the catch-light that distracting? I know it's somewhat gimmicky...

    Worked with new lighting equipment and a makeup artist

    I got my first softbox and umbrella for christmas this year. Also made a DIY ring light. I think the results of which were excellent :mrgreen: I had the chance to collaborate with an amateur makeup artist too and got a model friend of mine in on the project. Looking for feedback on these shots...

    First Portfolio(feedback needed!) and CC on photos(very specific questions!!)

    thanks for the feedback everyone. @Robin yes I know it differs from person to person but I wanted your opinion. I learn from understanding other perspectives. @tirediron Yeah some people still do smoke pipes :) The shot looks brighter on LR, I'll up the exposure a bit

    Summer Weather

    Hot temperatures and temperamental weather, is there anything not to love about summer squalls and cumulonimbus clouds? :D I found a fantastic secret spot in my suburban sprawl that has a top-notch view of the surrounding region -- and I've captured a few cloud photos that I absolutely love...

    Bought an old lens at a flea market, need help finding an adapter

    thanks for the positive review :) Again I'm not expecting too much out of this lens but if it provides even semi-decent wide shots I'll be satisfied!

    Bought an old lens at a flea market, need help finding an adapter

    If I can get anything in quality like the LAST $20 vivitar lens I bought... ...I think I can live with that. I'll be sure to post some test shots when the ring adapter arrives.

    Bought an old lens at a flea market, need help finding an adapter

    Picked up this beauty for $20 at a flea market today. I realize that getting an adapter is going to degrade the quality a bit but for $20 it seemed like to big a steal to pass up. :D So I need help finding an adapter that fits it. I've already found the lens which looks almost identical on...

    Bunch of PP questions and need advice on engagement photos

    So I understand the first two(sat/hue and gradient mapping) but I've never used smart filters before. Care to school me on how you did this with a bit more explanation? I'd love to learn :) I'm definitely going to try this at twilight, though the sun will be almost exactly on the right side of...

    thanks! hadn't thought of this, I'll give this a shot. thanks for the advice, I'll definitely be trying this. I'll probably need the loosening up more than them haha Wow. What did you do?? Is this just a temperature shift or did you do something more advanced? Thanks for the edit!

    Bunch of PP questions and need advice on engagement photos

    Yo TPF I'll cut to the chase, I have two shots here that I really like and I am fairly certain and exposed well. I did PP on them and initially liked the result but am not so sure now. I have included my work and have also included the raw shots. The second half of my posts is questions on...
