Great use of natural light and location. Beautiful model.
As usual superb work.

Thanks. Yeah I prefer natural light now.. so much easier to deal with.

Going back through these I have an honest, but blunt question. Did you kind of rush the processing on these or were you going for such a smooth skin look? I've seen the type of quality you are able to produce when it comes to touch up and smoothing and how critical you can be of your own work and that of others. The processing on these these falls short of what I know you are capable of (though still way better than I could do). That may be what the model/manager asked for and if that is the case then that is understandable.

Regardless, there is no denying that these are great shots.

It wasn't rushed.. I just didn't do the processing LOL I'm starting to sub it out to save time and allow more time for shooting.. My general workflow these days is to shoot, bring into lightroom and crop/adjust color, send to retoucher to clean the skin. Yes, if I did them myself, I would do more processing but that just takes too much of my personal time. I could have the retoucher do it but would be far to costly, especially for testing/TF. For paid jobs, I'll pay the retoucher to do a full retouch or just do it myself if the pay was right. The skin looks a little soft because it wasn't sharpened on the resize. Thanks for asking, good eye :)

Great set - I love the first 3. I love when someone's not afraid to blow the highlights, I think it looks awesome.

Thanks.. yeah, there's nothing wrong with blown highlights if done correctly.

It's a good thing I subscribed to this thread! I don't visit these forums much anymore but the beach shots were at Torrie(sp?) Pines.. I honestly don't know where the others were shot.. The MUA found the location.

Yeah, I wasn't expecting you to answer so quickly either. I had to search for your last thread since I couldn't find any recent ones :P. I rarely go on here either.
