I think you did pretty good. Learning is half the battle.

Pretty good. Nice model.

Take a rag with you and wipe her feet off between poses.

Anytime you say you will "fix it in Photoshop", stop and figure out how you can fix it on the spot.


No bragging list - I just rent whatever the job requires.

good start.

get the flash off-camera. something as simple as a cheap umbrella on a stand will do wonders compared to using the flash on-camera.

concerning the comment about photoshop above, I like the way Zack Arias states it on his Onelight DVD:

“If you find yourself out shooting a client and you are saying in your head. “UHH… I’ll just fix that later in photoshop…” stop what your are doing and slap yourself as hard as you can” :lol:

If you're maxed out on focal length then get those legs moving and walk in closer! If there are whatever reasons stopping you from doing so, the crop em down in post. I'm seeing quite a bit of dead space in these photos that is distracting from the model. Cut off feet are a no no (first image) as well as having random muddy dirty feet (first and third image). I'd say your third image is the strongest of the set but it's kind of an awkward pose/stance she's in (just her lower body). I'd suggest shooting with her again if you're able and having her be a practice model. The more comfortable the two of you become, i have a feeling your photos will improve

I like all the suggestions above and my add to this would be to try different shooting positions. Appears you are pretty much shooting down on her all the time. To me, these are the most un-flattering types of shots. Get down and shoot level or shoot up from a lower position for some different effects.

as long as your camera stays dry :-)

I went to the rain forest in Puerto Rico and was waist up at the bottom of some of the falls. my camera was literally inches off the water so I could get some waterfall shots.

do what you gotta do to get the shot you want :-)
