View Full Version : First model shoot critique
18th of July 2009 (Sat), 11:07
I had my first model shoot at my lighting class the other night, and I would like your critique of the shots and processing. I am mainly interested in your thoughts on the processing of the photos. I am not sure what the model expects, so I have done what I like, contrasty, glamour looks. Thanks for your input.

Second is a beaut for me.

2 is good. 1 and 3 are overexposed and too contrasty/shadowy. 5 is just blurry.
not bad, but not the best lighting imo.

Thanks for the feedback so far. I now see the overexposure on 1 & 3, so see if these are better...

1. She looks very natural and relaxed. Color of the wall is a little dull.
I see a lot of "foreshortened leaning against the wall poses" where the model has her back pressed against the wall.
If you would have had her bring her far shoulder around where it could be seen in frame it would add what would appear to be a more natural support for her head and add a pleasing "S" curve to her body. everything else was addressed in your 2nd edit.
2. again I like just see above point about hiding the far shoulder.
3. Can you clone out the curb coming up from her hand. A little more bokeh would have helped too. Her right arm is too straight and has some tension that is drawing my attention away from her face. Eyes a little too wide I'd fix that in PP.
If she would have bent it at the elbow just a bit you wouldn't have had to cut off her fingers in the crop. Best pose and best edit (2nd edit) of the three.
4. Lighting is too harsh. there is an anomaly of some kind on her knee. I love the angle and the pose from the waist down, very delicate, you nailed it. The way her arms wrists and hands are posed however, looks painful to me.

She went pretty heavy on the eyeliner :P
The highlights are a bit overexposed but I think that may have been the particular effects you were going for. Other than that gj :)

My very first thought was 'Panda' :o
Much preferred the second shot above, I find it very well balanced and pleasing to the eye.

Yep, pretty common comment...she needs to back off on the eyeliner :rolleyes:. Thanks again for the critique.
