One light test Canon 7D + 50mm f4 pentax m42 super macro takumar. Alien Bee ringflash ab800 with moonunit on PCB boom Cactus V4 triggers.

Is the PP on the eyes deliberate? I mean the extra extra dodge?

Nice lighting.

Haha, not to worry. It happens, I did it the first time I tried eye popping and trust me atleast your attempt looks good.

It is a bit much but then since the photo is dark and the eyes are bright it kinda makes it more interesting, you never know people may like it ;)

One for some wedding invites. something happened to the ones they were using so they called me for an emergency session. They got lucky that I was off today :lol: it's not perfect, but they seemed to like it.

It may not be perfect, but it's quite well-done considering the conditions! The eyes are beautifully sharp, the whites aren't blown, their expressions are lovely...when they use these for their invites, they're going to look much better than many invites I've seen, and on par with some of the e-sessions that I'm sure took much more time. They are lucky to have had you free for their last-minute efforts.

The only change I would have made is to possibly move them away from the background for a little bit of bokeh and subject isolation.

Nice shots Robert,

I think I'd crop the second slightly higher, to remove the bikini. The style it is we don't need to know she's wearing a bikini and it just draws my eye a littlee.

Thanks for the input Luke. I agree with you. It's funny you should mention the bikini bottom because the original crop did not have it in the shot but Petrice liked the 'teaser' aspect of it being shown. :)

I nearly assumed as much. The person with the money is always right though ;)

This is true. :)

On occasion I'll do a different edit or crop for myself but in this case I had to get the work done and move on.
