So had a recent photo shoot way out of my normal work (video and some random people shots)...
But just not sure on ANY of this. So I figured I would ask the pros here on POTN!
First and foremost, I WAS going for a "high key" look...I probably did not do it very well..but it is what it is lol
For C&C, I am looking for is this(but would love to hear all of your thoughts) :
1) Lighting was just done by what seemed most logical..probably very wrong in many ways..lol
What did I do right?
What did I do wrong?(expecting a lot of ideas on this one)
2x Interfit EX150 strobes
1) with a grid beauty dish(DIY) for key light
2) with a silver bounce umbrella
Used YN560 and 430EX II for spot/fill/hair lights
Canon 1DIV with 70-200 IS II
2) PP was pretty difficult for me...
Not sure if there is an easier method for skin smoothing other than the clone and blur tools in CS6..? Does this make the image unnatural looking?
Skin tone was/is REALLY hard to do...maybe it is the darker color of the model's skin..?
3) Model's poses...
I REALLY need help here...trying to get a model "in the mood" is VERY new to me..
But being a 6'2" 240lb guy, it isnt easy for me to show some 90lb model what I am trying to describe LOL
just throw anything in here...
OR, whatever you can think of!
And please, give it to me straight!! I can take it...have pretty thick skin..
FWIW EXIF should be intact in all..
Anyways, ANY help is greatly appreciated!
Here are some of the images(still processing more..)

Yea, I know the backdrop should have been ironed or something...didnt intend on using it..
Is there an easy way to clean it up, or even pull her out and place into a different background?
