Probably one of the last warm nights we will have until april 2013..No color left in my area so we did the best we could

Nice location. I can't tell if the face is soft or not but you'll want to crop out or photoshop out the beauty dish.

That was the first thing I noticed, too.

Hey, we know you. ;) Welcome back.

I think Mike just forgot to sharpen it for the downsize. It sharpens up nicely with a smidge of USM.

I started shooting senior pics for one of my granddaughters today. I used a 5D, primes and also used a flash on some of the shots.

I like all of those.. Maybe a little exposure bump for the first one.

Bob, maybe take a shot at doing either a levels or curves adjustment to bring an extra bit of pop to these. The shots look good overall but they seem to be missing a little something.

Please correct me if i am wrong,, but it looks like the shots with her hand against the pole were underexposed and you tried to bring it out in Post ??? Zomething looks off..maybe my monitor.... other than that,, nice posing. Very curious what you did for that shot.

Thanks for pointing out the problem with the first pic. I think I desaturated the first pic too much, does it look OK now? When I reworked it and replaced it on my site, the original was also replaced here since the link was changed, sorry. Thanks for the critiques.

Mike, the original wasn't underexposed, but It was cropped.

The pics with her in the shade still look a bit underexposed to me. It certainly isnt a terrible set of images. The lighting is a bit flat in the flash images. I assume youre shooting on camera flash as "fill". In those images, however, the flash direct on camera flash has become the main light due to the difference in background exposure being vastly different and you exposing for it. Sure youre "filling" her in, but with a main light.

Your last image with the train is your strong, imho. Youve got some great light and the lines in the back of her on the car are great. There even looks to be a bit of movement in her hair. It looks great. As soon as I saw it, I wanted to put her just in front of that square on the middle of the car (thus hiding the square) and use those lines to lead right up to her for a few closer in shots.

Laura really loves vintage and asked to do some shots with that theme so we took advantage of an old trunk I have. This is mid-day so I added a ND filter for these. C/C always welcome.

Just as I was about to log off for the night...I remembered!
