Hey everyone! I would love to hear some feedback on my first ever model shoot. I know I have lots to learn but it was definitely an experience that I would do again in a heart beat. Theres quite a bit of photos so i threw them in a easy to view gallery. the link is www.immolationstudios.com/lizzy_photoshoot/ Well take care.

really slow to load on your site. How about choosing a few and posting here for critique? You'd get much more response by doing so.

Its easier to C&C one or two photos at a time.

Most of these images are really hot... overexposed.
Composition is pretty bad. Chopped feet. Centered subject.
Work on your exposures and composition. No problem with the model.
Don't mean to be harsh... just my honest impressions.

Hey thanks for the crit poloman. Harsh is good by me :). I am gonna practice my compositions a bit more and work on lighting cause you are right a bunch of the photos are a bit over exposed. I also have to go back and crop some of the photos cause I haven't had a chance to do that part yet. Also Here are a few samples for everyone to take a look at if they are having a hard time with the site.

In your site, I sort of like the feeling in the first one, but most of your head & shoulder shots have too much room over her head. Hate #7 & the one where she's squinting. Why even include it?
Of the ones here, again crop out the crud above her head, & none of them look sharp?

Hey photosGuy, Thank you for the crits! after yours and Polomans crits I know exactly what I need to improve on.
Things I need to work on.
#1: White Balance- after really looking at the photos in a bunch of the shots her face and some of the walls are really blown out. Though I am not sure how it happened cause the meter was on the center line. :(
#2: Composition- I keep leaving too much head room. It always happens and its one of the main things people say to me and no matter how hard i try It always happens :(. This is a hard habit to break haha.
Does anyone know any books or anything that i should purchase that would help shed some light. Also the equipment I used was the standard kit lens on a XSI. I am actually saving up to buy a few prime lenses and a 5DMK2 :). But I want to push the XSI as far as it can go before the 5DMK2 purchase. The lenses i want to get is a prime 85mm, prime 55mm, and possibly a white body EF 20-200mm USM with or with out IS. I want to try those lenses on my XSI before the 5DMK2.

1, 2, 3 - underwire strapless is distracting. 2, strange under-garment lines on the lower half. Some skin work needed. See if you can work with her again. It would make a good study.

Though I am not sure how it happened cause the meter was on the center line. IMO, forget centering the needle. Where it rests depends on what you're pointing it at, even if the actual light hasn't changed. Here's a shortcut:

Scott I never noticed the wire deal haha thanks for pointing that out. I also didnt do anything to her skin. I dont know much about photoshop in the way of using it as its intended (I am a 3D character Modeler) but I am going to find some tuts on digital makeup and try to edit some photos.
PhotosGuy: THANK YOU SOO MUCH! those are some awesome links. Ill deffinatly have to read this over and over again to make sure I get everything. well time to go buy some grey cards tomorrow ;)

you can likely photoshop out the lines / shadows. just do it on a duplicate layer.
