A friend of mine asked me to shoot her recently graduated (HS) daughter. I have my own thoughts about how it went and the results. But your thoughts are welcome as I like other perspectives. :)

Shots taken with the Sigma 24-105 A.

1. I like the first one best. I like the reflectors caught on the French Horn. With the bottom one, besides losing the reflections and the side lighting, I don't like the room reflections in the bell.

2. I know thats the proper way to hold the French Horn, but for photographic purposes, her missing hand it awkward to me.

Lit well, and the expressions are nice but there are some details which could be fixed in PS to make a cleaner final product. First and most obvious to me is the very fuzzy hair going on, they could be cloned out in about 2 minutes while still looking natural.

Second area I'd look at in photoshop is the horn itself, and that quite clear reflection of the living room (including photographer) that you can see in it. That would require a fairly thorough cloning effort though so ideally this would be considered during the shooting phase instead.

Thanks...yep. the bell reflections were something I just didn't consider while I was shooting. Lesson learned. Believe it or not her hair HAS been cleaned up A LOT. lol For what I got paid (nothing) I did enough clean up on them. ;)

That's a fair call, I shoot a lot of bikes with extensive amounts of chrome at times so I've learned that many times over (and still occasionally forget) ;-)a
