#2 spot on, great feel and good capture and editing.

#1 looks candid, nothing wrong there, #3 I am kinda digging it but your PP is too heavy, to much contrast, details are all gone in the dark areas.

I am by no means a fashion critic, but here's what I see.

1 - Distracting hilight on the 34 in the background and the image feels to tight. To me - having the whole stairwell would have allowed a little more space and not having you, the subject, centered in the image. Not sure I like the bag. I like it though.

2 - Face seems OOF - distracting lettering or something behind the head competing for attention - maybe tone down the white. Nice diagonal lines cropping is almost golden spiralish, which is popular in fashion.

3 - Too dark, the textured rock being so bright focuses the attention on it rather than the model, or whatever the model is modeling, which is black and lost detail. Centered again, crotch shots - not real popular.

Exposure and focus issues for me.but I do like the compositions.


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

For #2 it doesn't look OOF it looks like you took a small picture and stretched it a bit. Not sure if that's the case though

I do like #1 and would like to see what #3 looks like without the PP

I'm no expert on modeling, let alone glamour photography but, the highlight in the sign above your model in number 1 draws my attention to the sign rather than your subject. I guess I'd suggest a tighter crop as you have in 2 and 3.

Number 2 is my favorite of the three. That said, it looks a little too soft unless that is the look you were trying to achieve. I personally would want it to be sharper. Otherwise, I like the exposure and processing.

I'm not real big on number three. Too much contrast, exposure almost looks blown out in bright areas and there's no detail in the dark areas. Not a fan of the pose either but again, I'm not the expert on such things.


Still learning, just not shooting as much as I'd like
