Hi there,

I used film presets (trying to get back into film photography but that is another story unto itself) and would like some C&C. Had to raise the iso quite high in camera and used a reflector.

I think you achieved the look you are going for very well. Hell, for $600 you can grab a 5D classic and 35mm f/2 to further explore the "film" look even better. Not sure if Nikon has a DSLR synonymous for film look like the 5D Classic.

Don't laugh but I bought a Nikon F100 and like 40 rolls of film. My wife wants to kick my butt! But these were done with a D700. What I do love about Nikon is that I picked up the F100 and knew how to use it immediately. Do the photos look ok though?

I think the photos look great, maybe the second one consider straightening it out so the poles are vertical?

Beautiful model and setting and I like the processing. Personally, I think #3 s the best of the set. #1 and #2 the poses look really stiff and forced to me. In particular, #1 almost looks like her hips are too high based on the placement of her hand. I'm sure part of that is based on the loose fitting dress, but it really looks odd/awkward to me.

Overall I think it's a strong set of images. I'd love to see some with eye contact though. She has amazing eyes that can really connect with the viewer if done properly.

Ok! I do have some of this model looking directly at the camera.

This one didn't either. I much prefer the model looking away as it adds an element of mystery.

How about turning her body about 30 to 45 degrees and then having her turn her head to look at the camera. I don't much like the looks of a straight-on shot except for certain situations which don't occur often.
You can also take some shots of her head tilted while she is in the position I just described.

Overall, the pics are quite good.

I think these look amazing. I can't believe those last two didn't make the first cut! Really clean and personally i like the straight on look, at least in this situation. Well done!
