Here's a couple shots that I took today. I was playing around with off camera flash for the first time. 1 flash to camera left in umbrella and the other flash was bounced off the ceiling. I edited these in lightroom. My monitor is not calibrated so the color might look off to you guys.

Models should not chew chewing gum. Blowing bubbles with it is great, but seeing them between their teeth, is much less so.

I like them. Looks like you were having a good time.

Images are crisp, clear, well lit (perhaps getting a bit hot?), and the color looks.....OK? Not sure about that. They look like they might be a bit warm.

I like it but maybe do it again with a more colored gum to blow the bubble with. Almost has a white hole in the face look.

Thanks for the comments. I'm sure the color is too warm. I tried printing these and the colors don't look like they do on my monitor

Hey there!
Welcome to the forum, and I really like the second shot.
Looks like you've caught a natural pose - irrespective of whether that was the 100th shot you took!
Well done, keep at it, and enjoy POTN...it's mostly full of great people!

Regards,
Simon

Love the 2nd shot - I agree, you should try with brighter pink gum (or color change in photoshop). The white balance is off - his jacket looks kinda dark purple and I assume it should be blue?
