This is my second outdoor shoot ever with model, during this shooting I have used all my accumulated knowledge gained from foruming.

Well … my thoughts after shooting is that being outdoors has the advantage of being able to choose the background more freely compared to mall shots =P I really enjoyed myself

Background Setting

Cheong Sam related fashion during the 70’s and 21st century.

The 1970’s is a decade of social strikes, crisis, technological progress and the acceptance of what’s considered as “radical ideas” during the 60’s such as feminism and environmentalism.

The 21st century began on January 1, 2001 and will end on December 31, 2100.
The age of superpowers, the internet and space exploration. Living in relative peace and comfort, in this digital age, stress and anti-sociality are the major concerns of an average person living at this time.

imo, the two pics with the girl and her umbrella stand out the most. Good composition

Your doing much better than before, just like the rest said i love the two with the umbrella's . I think #3 is a tad overexposed going towards the upper right corner

And for future posts, if you put up one or two pictures you will get more specific C&C than posting many at a time

Personally, I love images 1, 3, 4 and 6 with 4 my fave. Reason I don't care for other two as much is the model. Not that she is unattractive, but she doesn't "fit" the style of dress. The Cheongsam dress is a Chinese dress and to me the models should be Chinese or at least Asian. The model in 2 and 5 may be Asian descent but doesn't "look" Asian. Hope that makes sense. The models used in the other images tie the entire image together for me. The choice of models aside, all well done IMO.

Pic #3 is superb - I love it. The rest are great too, but are fairly standard in terms of composition.

I'm curious why the high shutter speeds with posed models outdoors? In addition the iso also seems high for outdoor use.

Nevermind -went to link, I see for the type of images you want. Its more about vintage art form.
