I know I'm a creep for taking so many pix of my sister, but she is all I have to take pix of :(

LMK what you think...

the angle on #1 is better...shooting down instead of up...eyes in #1 don't appear as sharp as the hair at her forehead...she has a great smile.

I do think you have a great model to shoot...dosn't really matter who she is as long as she will put up with the effort is takes to help out a learning photographer...maybe have her invite a friend or two to expand the looks/personality etc.

Ya I like #1 better too, I just was trying to get the sun in the second one, that's why I shot from that angle. And she likes having me take her shots, Facebook pix FTW. And any pointers on the flare shots?

My sister is MY #1 model too. Her skin tone looks too yellow/green in the first one, to a lesser extent in #2.

Well with the WB I meant for them to look kinda brown, like an antique look.

If you were taking nudes you may be seen as a creep lol.
If she is all you have to work with so be it. Personally I look at girls I know and try to take their personality and put it into a theme, using them for TF shoots.

You could always try that?

#2 is the better of the 2. Great back light.


Gear: Canon, of course :cool:

Color cast is a bit off on both of them. Could be the processing so that's a matter of taste me thinks. First is a tad soft in the eyes, an area you always want to be sharp, no matter what other portions of the image are out of focus.

Pretty sis though. She seems to be a natural.

Shoot whomever you can man. That's the only way you will improve.

I like #1 but not sure about the color treatment or WB adjustment. Saturation is bit heavy too.

DOF could/should have been a bit deeper to include all of her upper body.

What are the repeating lines in the BG?

And you have a lovely sister - great model. If she's willing to pose take the opportunity to practice.
