I went out with Melanie:

and Yuri:

today for a mock-up engagement shoot. Melanie is a young (17 y/o) model I found on ModelMayhem.com and Yuri (21 y/o) is her friend, hoping to get into modeling (today was his first time).

We had a blast shooting, but, we were restricted for time (we had approx 1.5 hours), as Yuri had to work at 4:00. Melanie brought her grandma as an "escort" and to sign the Model Release, and, after hiking down a long, winding, steep trail to get to where we wanted, we decided that it would be best to leave her grandma to "sun bathe" by one of the rocks, as the trail was getting pretty bad and not very easy to hike on for a 70-year old woman. The 3 of us hiked for another 20 mins to the waterfalls you see in these shots. What a great location!

Here are some of the shots I got. I wanted some practice posing couples, lighting them, and, I got some practice working under time constraints.

These are all really quick edits, I hope you like:

I think they're great! The only thing I don't like is that in #1 she's leaning a little too far back, and in #6 that she's looking at the camera. I'd rather she was looking at him. Nice shoot!

Thanks for the comments :)

I have different poses of #1, such as:

IMAGE NOT FOUND IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
Byte size: ZERO | Content warning: NOT AN IMAGE


But I think i prefer the one I posted in my 1st post. Now that you mention it, I do wish that I had them kissing, but, this was the 1st pose and I didn't know how comfortable they were with that just yet. It took a couple of poses and a bit of chit chat to figure out if I should ask them to kiss or not.

Also, #6, I see what you mean, but I think that her looking at the camera gives a great mood to the photo, a mood that I really was going for. I didn't get any of her looking at him, but I did get a couple variations:

IMAGE NOT FOUND IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
Byte size: ZERO | Content warning: NOT AN IMAGE


IMAGE NOT FOUND IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
Byte size: ZERO | Content warning: NOT AN IMAGE


IMAGE NOT FOUND IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
Byte size: ZERO | Content warning: NOT AN IMAGE


Again, I think I still prefer the one in my original post, just for the mood of the photo.

Photography is very subjective and I appreciate your comments :)

Okay I definitely like the 2nd version you posted of #6. I didn't like the first one because you could see the profile of his face looking at her and she just seemed like "GET ME OUT OF HERE!" lol. This one's definitely better. I also like the 3rd version you posted where they're both looking at each other. Good emotions

Thanks so much! I really appreciate that. It's all about emotion, character and feeling. That's what I try to pull out of a photo.

For example, I really liked the "splashing" series in this shoot, it really shows "the couple's" emotion and interaction.

she does not look 17 at all.

I like all of the shots, except 2 and 3.

#2-I dont like whatever it is on her back. I cant really make it out, I could be her butt crack, thats what It looked to me.

#3- doesn't seem as personal as it could have, she seems a little to far. Seems like they are uncomfortable in that picture for some reason.


#6- I love this shot, I love even more because shes looking at the camera. If i could put a title on the shot I would call it "Caught in the Act"
very Calvin Kleinish stuff.

Kudos

Thanks Lloyd, appreciate it a lot. Means a lot coming from you. I wish I had more time and freedom, we were really pressed for time, and Melanie REALLY wanted to go to these falls. So when we got there, we only had 10 minutes to actually shoot. I am planning on going out with her again next week for a beach shoot.

I know! I didn't even know she was 17 until I asked and I was like "WOAH!" lol.

2 - I'll clone that out. It's the string from her bathingsuit I think. Like I said, these are just quick edits to show what I've done. Good catch.

3 - I agree it doesn't seem as personal. Probably because taht "love" sensation and connection really isn't there.

6 - I like the caption :) Thanks lol

No I didn't, it was TFCD - something the three of us collaborated on.
