My beauty dish arrived today! so I made my fiancee pose for me :) I would appreciate feedback.

They were taken against a wall in a cramped dining room.

Beautiful.

The lighting and especially the model (you're lucky man!).


If steroids are illegal for athletes, should PS be illegal for models?

My only advice is to get used to looks #1 and 5. I've been married almost 37 years now and they come up a lot!

Great job!

I go with this. Sorry but I have NO idea how to improve either the lighting or (especially) the model.

I think the lighting and of course the model are spot on. The only things I would comment on these are I would avoid the up the nose shots like number 2. I also am not a fan of the position of they eyes in the first 1 where they are focused so far to one side that you can not see any of the whites of the eye on that side. Just my 2 cents.
