A follow up from this thread.

My third photoshoot went better than the previous 2. I had many more keepers and I am getting quicker with setting up my lighting. These are my 4 friends who wanted pictures to give to each other for college. C&C is appriciated! Enjoy!

2. One of the girls had this idea of stringing pictures from tree to tree. They really liked these.

#3 and #5 are my favorites. Lighting looks great in all of them. Nice work. I'd definitely enjoy more from this series. Looks like a fun group to shoot with!

Lighting and WB looks all good. Now, this just may be me, but they are all too wide for my liking. try a little tighter cropping. (1,5,6)

I have to disagree with the comments about lighting. I think you could have used more fill flash for their faces in most of these.

I'd have to say #4 looks ok as far as facial lighting, but the rest suffer a bit in that respect.

The girls for the most part look under exposed. Their skin looks a bit orange but maybe they all spend 3 hours laying in the sun everyday and have dark (unhealthy) tans.

And I don't know why there are those strings with photos hanging off when they are too small to see.

I really like the creativity in all of these, regardless of whether it was perfectly executed or not. However, I agree with them looking a tad underexposed and could certainly benefit from a bit more fill light. Just upping the exposure a bit in PP could help them enough.

Thanks everyone for the comments. I can agree the photos are underexposed a little. As for the leg shadows in #1 how could I have avoided that? I had one flash on the right and one on the left figuring it would balance the shadows...is that correct at all? Another thing I noticed is the pictures seem to desaturate when I put them on the forum, dont know why that is.

Thank you, that is what I am going for, I am trying to be more creative!

It was their idea to have the photos on the string. Here is a closer example of the pictures hanging. Also they all are very tan, I adjusted the saturation in them just a little bit.

I think what I would have done is have each of them lay in the grass with something like 4 pictures surrounding their face and crop close so you can see them all, then make a sort of 4-square collage of their 4 faces with the 4 photos surrounding them. It might give some pretty cool quadrant-type depth.

#9 is a full blown upskirt. Just sayin. Some could be adjusted a bit brighter, but nice work overall. Watch the wide angle for portraits, it tends to distort.

That is an awesome idea, thanks for that! I will definitely have to try it.

#9 needs the upskirt fixed by cloning part of the skirt to cover the "sensitive" areas.
#7 I would try using the healing brush to tone down the oily skin of the girl on bottom.

They all look really good, but a few could use a bump in exposure. Nice work!

I know it is not under your control, but advise the girls to wear the correct bras that match their top/dress. ie: #6 ton of bra showing from behind on atleast 2 girls. I think you are off to a good start.
