Man,, got another order done from last fall,, Finally,, only 6 more to go... the economy is still tough for some of these families

I thought it was me, I have a bunch of portrait sessions from last year that I'm just getting around to doing the picture viewings. Just did a senior viewing a couple of days ago that was photographed in September.

And thanks for the link! :)

One from the session I just finished editing. From two week's ago not last year. lol

I'm not sure why I went with the bleach bypass effect. I usually don't do that stuff.

Thoughts?

Wes,

for what it's worth...I think you could (and DO) do MUCH better than this
Her skin looks a bit rough and chalky...not smooth and feminine
While I understand the curvy thing you were going for something about the pose and the crop lead my eye to her mid section instead of her face (and while I'm not a horrible stickler about the back of the hand thing.... the difference between both the orientation and the height leave her left arm/hand looking like a nub.
I like the bleach bypass thing sometimes. not this time.
I would pop the actual color, smooth out the skin and make it a head shot if anything.

Heep peeps

Fuzzy Duenkel came to our TCPPA monday seminar this month in Minnesota. The guy is a lighting genious so i picked up a bunch of great information......thoug​ht i would share this with you. It really shows how valuable getting it right in the camera is. Gobos and scrims and invaluable.. This guys shoots by himself most of the time and this is one reason why he gets the looks he gets.

These are worlds better than the first edit, imho. Same the bleach bypass for girls in torn jeans. ;)

Thanks. I don't know what I was thinking. Sometimes you just have to step away from the computer for a while. :lol::oops::)

You would not believe how windy it was that day.

Agreed, Fuzzy is a genius, I've learned a lot from him over the years.

I have a question for all you senior studio shooters *and those that do beauty portraits* I am trying to decide on what stool I should get for my studio next. I am not sure what design or color.

Would you get one of these?

IMAGE: http://i45.tinypic.com/339hn4x.jpg

Right now I am leaning towards the middle one in red. I know red can limit its use but I really like how it looks. :D Eventually Ill probably get a 2nd stool of a different design and color but I've got to many things on my to get list :D I'm about to buy a 5dc, flash and a couple things for the studio. :D

I first noticed these at tj maxx for like $45, I was going to buy it but wasnt sure. then when I decided I was going to buy it every tj maxx in the area only had black ones, no red ones. now they dont have any of them. the center one was about $80. It recently occurred to me to try amazon and they have all the above for $60.

Jay, do you not use it because the client doesnt ask for it, or just because you dont like how it looks and doesnt occur to use it?

A lot of people around here seem to like pinup pictures, which is one reason I am thinking of this. :)
