HI did a profile shoot for a singer (Blonde) and also asked a model to pop by to try some portraits. So the looks will be different.

Used an Octa as a main, reflector, with softboxes for side lighting.
CANON 70D with 50-150mm Sigma F2.8 (really stunning lens).

C&C always welcome

portrait pro?

These are way over processed for my taste. If you are going to apply that kind of processing my advice is:
1) go easy with it.
2) don't smooth the eye brows
3) make sure the face and hands don't look like they belong to two different people.
4) make sure the hair and makeup match the heavily processed fashion skin processing look.

Agree about the PP, but I really like your lighting.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Ironically, I didn't touch the eyebrows, eyes, lips at all. Also at F2.8 lots of the skin was quite blurred out as is.

I'll relook at them :)

Aside from the heavily overdone skin smoothing, her eyes are lost in contrast to the brighter highlighted areas.

I actually think it's the makeup, and not the PP. I see a lot of detail in the PP, but to me, the makeup is far too heavy. I do like the darkish lighting.

Iv been reading lots into the criticisms, and I agree, it does look overdone. And upon looking at the raw's. it is overdone.
That being said, the agency actually wanted to use the softer looking ones, which I didnt agree with in principle.

Here is a before and after. The model had quite tricky skin, so the MUA had to use tons of makeup. Ontop of that, the shallow DOF meant I didnt have much pore reference either.
Not trying to make excuses. I suppose my retouching skills wasnt up to the challenge.

I really do appreciate all the criticisms, as my goal is to improve. Im only in the game for 18 months now.
