The orange sky is beautiful reflecting off the water. One thing I noticed is that the model's clothes are the same tones as the environment. Maybe try an outfit with little more punch.

The broken pavement and the peeling railing are the only things that bother me. The sky and the model are dynamite.

Nice model, I don't mind the clothes or the broken pavement, any photographer have to work best what is thrown their way! So I don't understand why others have said that honestly! For me I would say this pose is very masculine and doesn't suit a woman plus what she is wearing! Work on the poses and don't be afraid to give a model direction on the way you want her to pose! Thats all I have to say, nice lighting and background scene!

My first thought is that it is not the most flattering pose for her. She is a beautiful woman with nice curves, but to me her right leg looks a little odd, she's not taking advantage of her long legs with a more flattering pose.

Love the sky colors as well, but her clothes do kind of fade into the background.

I think it is the rider pants. They have extra material in the hip it looks like.

She is stunning. I'm wondering how it would look if you cropped the left side off a bit.

I think you lit her well. I personally would crop the image tighter.....much tighter. Like a head shot.

Ok, here are a few thoughts about the photo and other comments for your consideration.

1) Model is under exposed.
2) background is perfectly exposed
3) styling the model should be thought of in two ways (my opinion based on experience as a fashion photographer) a) style the model with complimentary colors (like purple to a yellow background etc). You can use a color wheel if you dont know all of them. b) Similar tones to background (think crouching tiger hidden dragon with green on green. looks beautiful)
4) Unless the styling is complimentary on the color wheel, dont use loud colors. This is what high-school portrait photogs do and the photos ending up looking like high school portraits. No disrespect to highscool portrait photogs.
5) pose the model. I tell my models go bold or go home. Literally. I have actually sent them home lol. The reason I say this is because this image has such dramatic colors yet such a boring pose/expression. Look at the ecstacy of st teresa by bernini and see how engaging the sculpture is just because of the expression.


Apart from that, I think you definitely are on to something here. Next time, use a shoot through umbrella or difuser and place the strobe closer to the model. But serisouly though, I think you show clear talent with this shot, even though there are a few technical issues.

Thanks for sharing.

I like it, the colors in the background are amazing. the only thing I am not in love with is the pose. It's a little too straight on in my opinion. I think with a bolder pose, it would be off the chain. As it is now I can only rate it at "the bomb diggity"

Thanks for sharing!

Ok, here are a few thoughts about the photo and other comments for your consideration.

well let's hear it since i have posted it for c&c

1) Model is under exposed.

Well, on my monitor is OK, maybe I need to recalibrate it again.

2) background is perfectly exposed

That's something for start :cool:

3) styling the model should be thought of in two ways (my opinion based on experience as a fashion photographer) a) style the model with complimentary colors (like purple to a yellow background etc). You can use a color wheel if you dont know all of them. b) Similar tones to background (think crouching tiger hidden dragon with green on green. looks beautiful)

This time I had no influence in styling, since it was test shoot, but I'll keep that in mind for next time.

4) Unless the styling is complimentary on the color wheel, dont use loud colors. This is what high-school portrait photogs do and the photos ending up looking like high school portraits. No disrespect to highscool portrait photogs.

That's new for me, and I'll remeber it. bw!

5) pose the model. I tell my models go bold or go home. Literally. I have actually sent them home lol. The reason I say this is because this image has such dramatic colors yet such a boring pose/expression. Look at the ecstacy of st teresa by bernini and see how engaging the sculpture is just because of the expression.

Well I addmit I don't know how to pose a woman model :o Is there some good book or sth about that.

Apart from that, I think you definitely are on to something here. Next time, use a shoot through umbrella or difuser and place the strobe closer to the model. But serisouly though, I think you show clear talent with this shot, even though there are a few technical issues.

I'm happy to hear that, since I have no expirience wirking with models. To now I was working product photography, wich is completely different from this kind of photography. I used 24" speedlite softbox with sb900 inside.
This made my day, that I have talent, rest will probbably iron out with work.
After next shoot I'll post few things, so we'll se is there any progress :eek:

Thanks for sharing.

You are welcome ;)

@ rest, I used 24" softbox for speedlite with only front diffusion and sb900 fired via rf602
