2 days, 5 shoots, my favorite hair and makeup team. I'm a pretty happy girl.

C&C is always appreciated.

Cheers,
Kristal

Wow these are beautiful. A couple of the poses seemed the tiniest bit awkward (crooked arm by the couch, for example) but I have zero business giving you any critique. The lighting was so pleasing in every one. I really appreciate you sharing these.

Very well done. The only think that jumped out at me right away (as a negative) was that #5 could really use some catch lights in the eyes.

And you should be proud, even with what you have shown us, this is a fantastic variety of styles.

As I have said before I don't particularly like how you are often on the verge of being blown out but I love #8. Including the blown areas :)

And I like # 7.

I would also like #5 quite a lot if it wasn't for the sand colored bar on the left side... Part of the annoyance is probably that I can't relate it to what else I see in the image. I agree catchlights would help though.

#6 is the one that bothers me the most. Her arm makes a weird kind of angle and she seeems to have a bone where her butt meets her leg. Could it be because of the high heels?

And #3, I just don't get. I can't see what is romantic about a garage. Maybe if she was draped over a nice car or motorcycle :)

Thanks everyone for the feedback. Nice to see I'm on the right track, for the most part. As for 5 c.cloudwalker, the bar you are seeing it the top of a glass railing. We were shooting up in a loft. And I see her but bones now too! I must say, it's almost harder working with the super skinny models than a plus sized model.

Of of the little tricks to shooting model (people) in their skin, is to try to not have them putting their weight on anything that will change their bodies...but still have them look natural while doing the crazy hard poses that would be required. So if she could somehow take some of the weight off of her butt, it might help here. But you'd then have to watch for bulging shoulder muscles etc.

Yes Big Mike its hard work for the models, for sure! I always tell the they will be sore the next day. And they are always amazed at just how physically demanding it can be.

I think I may have not pressed the issue of keeping the weight off of themselves as much with these tiny models. But now it will bother me to no end with these images. Lesson learned!

No problem with the railing then as the client and her boyfriend/husband know what it is. Just maybe don't use it in a portfolio. Although it is quite nice otherwise.

As for the butt bone, I wouldn't worry about it too much. One, I was the only one mentioning it so how many people will notice it? And two, it is the only photo with such a thing happening. I only wanted to bring it to your attention so that you can try and keep it in mind in the future.


And yes, modeling can be hard work. I've never modeled but enough of them have passed in front of my camera to know. And let's not even talk about modeling for a painter... although most painters I know now work from photos so that's become a little easier :)

Also, could probably be acceptably 'fixed' with Photoshop pretty easily....if you were so inclined. But I agree, it's not really a problem that needs fixing.
