I'm really working at posing and post-processing. Miss K is a relaxed, willing, beautiful friend of mine who enjoys mugging for me when I need practice. I covet your honest opinions for areas of improvements and what you like. I did three different porcessings from last nights session to see how they fare with you.

The first is to washed out for my tastes. The third is okay. The second one you nailed in my opinion. Good work.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

Etaf is 1 icky? I shot with the sun behind her to the right, manually focused, brightened it up in PP, skin smoothing and did light adjustments beyond that. K liked it, I'm not sure I do.

#1 is a bit washed out but i think i know the look you're going for. compared to the other 2 there's a lack of contrast and saturation, a bit of light fill would have improved both.

#2 really nice. great colours, contrast and compostion.

#3 is my personal favourite. again colours and contrast are spot on, the subject seperation is fantastic and the i really like the her expression. i would have preferred more of a 'half-body' shot but that's just me

On my phone, 1 looks flat. 2 looks too hot and three looks good...

That's the exposure side...

Posing side, I like them all in 2, 3, 1 order....


-im just trying. sometimes i succeed

not keen on #1, too washed out for my tastes.

number 2 is great, but the eyes are too unnatural looking to me, kind of unreal looking.

number 3 is good

2,3,1 my order of preference.

Thank you for the feedback everyone. I don't think I like #1 either, but MIss K did so I thought I'd work with it. I feel I can do better with the light-airy-vintage feel in PP rather than in-camera lol!

Miss K's eyes are amazingly vibrant blue. In some of her shots from that day I toned them down a bit as they were naturally too much.

I like all three, but my favorite is 2, and number 1 is second. I like the effect. Your model photographs beautifully and if you can, you should do more of her.

The effect on the first one is a bit distracting. The other two are good, 8/10

#1 is very seductive but too washed out. I'm guessing Miss K likes #1 because of her seductive look and is willing to overlook the washout. #2 is my favorite because those gorgeous eyes pulled me right in. #3 is just OK for me.

So, 2, 3, 1 is my preferred order.
