Just like the title says, it's a simple one light shoot trough umbrella. C&C welcomed!
My opinion- the smile is not relaxed, and is a bit "uneven". Too many stress lines in the face. I would like to see a more relaxed smile.
It's a good shot. The crop maybe a little too tight. The question is "does your client like it"?
Yes, the client loves it! She was there when I did the few edits. As for the smile, that's her smile, not too much I can do...
One issue I see here is that with her body being turned so far to the left when she turns her head right to the position you shot it caused a roll in her neck. less neck movement would have prevented the roll.
And lose the vignette.
Thanks for the tips DiskoJoe!
I think the contrast is just a wee bit too high,as is the saturation in the lower tonal values...her hair kind of plugs up in the dark spots. I would like to see a little bit of dodging or lightening-up on some of the hair, and maybe a bit of cloning or healing on the redness on her neck. The way her figure is presented to the camera, the camera height, and the framing ALL make a very strong impression that she is indeed "there!"...I think a little bit softer contrast and slightly lower saturation levels would add more to that impression. Overall, she looks lovely and pleasant. It might not be the absolute best-possible shot of her, since she has some very nice features and has tremendous potential, but I'd say that it is quite a pleasing look at her, and a far,far better picture than just a casual snap!
Thanks for the great response Derrel, people like you who make people like me want to improve.
I think she is tilted back too far and a bit bright (and her neck is the brightest spot of all and she has a hickey on the front of it).
Her bosom looks too big, mostly because the pattern camouflages how she is positioned.
I don't think that's a flattering aspect.
Thanks for all the feedback guys!
Her breasts look sharper than her eyes and the pose is making her look very wide
Stop staring at her tits gary! I thought you were a professional. lol
