Tiffany, love your shots of Brei! I'm totally jealous of that stairway next to the brick wall...I can't find anything like that in my town.

Here are a couple seniors from last week. I know her left arm is kinda stiff looking in #3 I just didn't catch it when I took the shot.

Maybe its my laptop monitor, but I think I can see veins in her eyes, something that probably should be taken care of in a closeup :D

You're right...that is one thing I have never retouched. I'll give it a try.

I like them. I have never really found a good look with the arm on the hip thing either. I just despise the pose. I dont think its flattering and that goes for my shots as well. I dont like the arm sticking out there. It rarely helps the over all look in my opinion. Hoping someone has a look that works.

I think the girls see all the movie stars doing this on runways an think its fashionable. Personally, I dislike that look.

clone tool set to lighten at about 60% opacity should do the trick

Tiff- you Rock! (enough said)
Mike I'm sure Bailey will love those (Oddly enough I hava a step daughter named Bailey, and they look a little similar- wierd)
Lisa- wow
Jay.. I like #1- did you do any with short light?
2. is a good crop/ composition, but I wish you could have shot from a higher angle to help with the chin area.
3. I like to do that pose twisted around at the waist. and I don't think it would have looked as stiff if she had " girls in the front and shoulders in the back"

4. great relaxed natural looking shot.

I think the pose can work with a little refinement on that arm! Gonna work on that.

1. I did short light some, I just felt this one, showed her natural expression better than some of the others.
2. I was kicking myself for not having my step ladder with me :(
3. You might be right!!
4. Thanks...this was one of my favs of the whole session!

Shot this with my 24-70 at 1/200 @ F2.8 - iso 200. Then in photoshop I applied the glow technique to the entire image, painting it in with a mask. I like the look of the glow and might be over using it now. :D

that is interesting processing. Not one that I would use all clients, but it almost has a Goth feel but without all the black.

usually the glow technique is just applied to the skin and hair, but I like how it effects the background, just not at 100%, which is why I paint it in with a mask.

I think that is what its called.

duplicate the layer, guassian blur until its almost not recognizeable, change the blending mode to overlay, and mask the areas you want. dont do the eyes and probably not the lips. then if you want, use vibrance to make the skin look more natural.
