This is an interesting shot. ^ She looks like a completely different person.

I often joke and say that she's a "stock market chameleon beauty." Why? Because she can look very different in terms of attractiveness and countenance from moment to moment, and there's no predicting how she might appear. When I'm shooting her, these are comments you'll often hear me make:

"No, not that angle. Now you look like your aunt."

"Holy cow! Hold that expression. You're a f-ing elegant goddess right now!"

"Don't do that donkey smile. You hate it when you look like your mom, remember?" (Her mom was extremely abusive and a total monster.)

"Where's my wife? What did you do with my wife? Who's this strange woman trying to seduce me?"

"Loosen up. You are as stiff as a piece of rock." (She then shakes all over the way a wet dog does, and tries the pose again.)

"Stop it! Don't make me put down the camera and pounce on you. Behave yourself. No more teasing."

"Too much tilt. No more curious puppy poses. With this outfit you need to act your age."

"CTCAB." (Stands for "Chest, Tummy, Chin, Arms, and Butt. It's our code for paying attention to how those parts appear during a pose. For example, when she slouches, or press her arms too hard against her torso and flattens them out too much, or forget to lift her chin to prevent accidental double-chin, or sticks out her tummy too much, or don't arch her back when it'll make the pose look better.)

"The stock market just crashed, baby. We should stop." (Meaning she's looking tired and stiff and missing her usual glowing aura.)

"Hey cutie. What high school do you go to?" (I make that joke whenever she has that doe-eyed look and appears really young.)

"Oh my god. Everyone's staring. One more shot and we're out of here." (Often accompanied by people slowing down their cars and saying hi to us as they drive by.)

BTW, she's a lot more fun in video, because you get to see how expressive she is from moment to moment. I have a couple of videos up on Youtube with her as the main model:

Just started shooting people seriously and was playing around with fill-flash yesterday.

Great photo but a little too hot on the fill. Try -2/3 to -1 EV FEC. Should be perfect.

Could you elaborate? "Too hot" overall (in relation to the background), or in specific areas? Thanks.

Just my opinion but I find her face and chest a bit too bright from the flash exposure in relation to the background. I like the picture a lot and think that it would have benefitted from a bit of minus FEC. I'm pretty sure that I could fix it in post processing.

I agree. For that specific photo, I think just enough fill to prevent her face from being really dark would be just fine. Past that point then the face becomes too bright and the interesting cast shadow gets diluted too much.

But I'm also one of those people who's not a big fan of the big HDR craze, since so much of those heavily processed photos become so flat in lighting that all the interesting interplay of light and shadow and forms are gone--sort of processed to hell and becomes lifeless. A similar effect can happen when there's too much fill light in what's supposed to be a high contrast lighting scene (especially if part of the visual interest is supposed to be the cast shadows)--it ends up looking very unnatural and screams "fill flash!" and "reflector!" It can work in some situations--it's kind of a case-by-case consideration. In general I think using a large sun diffuser looks much better, but without assistants it's pretty much impossible for one photog to use one, especially if there's any wind at all.

Thanks for the feedback. Something to work on next time. :-)
