Tell me what you think! Shot one and 3 were with my 24-70, and shot 2 was with the 50 1.8.

I fell in love with the 5D.

Excellent shots. Nitpicks - the background on 2 looks a little weird, and the white balance looks a little cool on 2 and 3.


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.

Yeah, I agree. I was shooting at 1.8 on shot 2, so i think thats what happened with the backround. And i probably shoot change the color balance a bit for the last shot :/.

1&3 work nice. as mentioned i would warm them up in post. #2 does not work. I never pose a femal straight on. she needs a twist and a turn like #1. Just dont think is a complimentary pose for a female.

Haha that is a pretty manly pose isnt it? Yeah, i think posing people is my weakest point right now. Sometimes i sit there looking like an idiot, does anybody every go to the location beforehand and like scope out the place to know how to pose during the actual shoot. Ive been contemplating doing that, then i just get lazy.

Don't worry about location and stay far away from posing, for posing makes photos look posed...

Have a good dialogue with your model- tell them to do what they are comfortable doing and then tweak it if it does not look right.

as for posing a model straight on.. It works fine, if you are a good photographer. Practice , study your pics and keep shooting all angles.. not everyone has the same angles. people are different. You need to search for their specific angle.

have fun!
