I think the nose shadow in the next to the last image (8976) is a little too extreme and the flash angle is causing pretty strong shadows on her cheek line. I like your colors though on that image and the fact that she is not so square to the camera (not sure about the knee being in the image though). I agree that it would be great if you shared some of your shooting info (gel on flash for example?). Lovely subject. Beautiful background. Thanks for sharing...

John

I think the focus is off on some of these. Her eyes look a little soft...

You get that when you drag your girlfriend out of the shower because you have lights out in the yard! haha

All shots were taken with my 5dMkII and a 70-200 at iso100- f/5- 1/200 (except 8900. f/3.2 and the last one was something different) I used an einstein and a cyber commander with an 86 inch parabolic light modifier. I metered the ambient and closed down the f-stop 2 thirds (metered at 5.6.3) and turned up the flash until it metered f/5. The the shadows come from me moving left, center and right of the Plm. It's kind of fun to balance the sun and the flash once you've got your setup.

Yeah Like I say I was moving all over and having her move the some poses with disinclination. It's a bit harsh, could benefit from a fill or different angle, but its dramatic and stands out so I left it.

Good shots.

Why Thank You!

If you are referring to 8900, its a tad soft bc it was shot at 3.2 and the focus was on her teeth, still in my acceptable rangeā€¦ but if you are referring to any others, you are mistaken.

I like the shots and colors. It looks to me as if you are cleaning up the face, you may take this wrong but I would clone out the mole. If you have a very clean face like that, having the mole on her neck is distracting. If you left all imperfections on the face then I think that the mole left would be okay. IMO it is distracting from the face since you cleaned up the face so well. Other than that I like pretty much everything. Pretty GF

The retouching was done in Photoshop. I've been retouching for years and I went a bit more extreme than I normally do. I increase the contrast on the eyes. After I do my retouching, I use the portraiture filter. Its a great little plug in and I recommend it to everyone. I know that mole personally, so I couldn't 86 it :rolleyes:
