So i planned this soft lit shoot with a model that wanted a certain look and feel. I quite like the results, different to what I have done before.

I used my 17-50mm F2.8 lots, but fell inlove with the 85mm towards the end.

C&C welcome

I like 3 and 4 the best. Nice simple poses with nice expressions. Great shots. #3 works.

I think you achieved that certain look and feel you wanted. These are great images.

Nice soft light. This is why I like overcast days.

What were you going to do if it was sunny with no clouds on the beach?

I chose the day based on weather forecast.
We also did the shoot just after sunrise on the side of the mountain where the sun is blocked for 2 hours, so indirect light either way

I love these shots. For me, number three had just a bit too much of a Gradient blur in the background. I personally actually found it a bit distracting. But that said these images are beautiful. Great job.

Roamingbull, Not sure what you mean "gradient blur" I assume the falloff of background blur? Its all done in lens. I suppose I could have minimised that by taking the shot from lower down and "flattening" the background into one plane. But I like the view of the model from this angle

That's just my thought on the one. Agreed the subject looks great in all of them. Good work.

Aaah, I see what you mean, it plays a bit on your eye optics :) If those rocks were not in the water, could have made the background a bit more pleasant. Rocks were a bit heavy to move tho :D
