[now I need to find advice on how to get my girlfriend to not be mad at me about this shoot..]

Women can be competitive, especially if it's about other women. This can be leveraged... ;)

I would say try uping the shadows in the backgrounds and making them contrastier and more out of focus. They are distracting, but that might save you from having to clone them out. Number two the distortion to her face ruins it for me, but I like the results of the wide angles on the rest. A nice job for a quickie series.

Any guides on how to do this effectively?

Thanks :)

If you shot in raw, the method I usually use is to open one photo with the exposure you want for the model, and than open it a second time with the blacks dialed up, contrast up, and clarity down. Playing with the saturation can help too, as well as adjusting the highlight curve, then copy and paste one on top of another and apply a mask, some careful use of a black brush to blend the two backgrounds together should take care of it. Doesn't always work but it's saved a few of my own photos.

She had just gotten off work at 11PM (waitress) so we tried to make it as quick as possible.

How is she wearing those clothes out of her job?

Overall I like the photo's, I just don't really like the outfit of the model, would have preferred some more class... and clothes.

She chose her clothes herself :P I thought I was lucky just to have the opportunity since it was my very first time shooting a model.
