lovely set. I like #5 and #3
for the first 2, for me It feels like you photoshopped the model into a stock photo... this is my opinion of course :) lovely model.


Canon 5DIV / Fujifilm X100F / Sigma 50mm 1.4 DG ART / 135mm 2 L / 70-200mm 2.8 IS II L / 430EX III-RT

Thanks , appreciate the comments ..

one of the things I found tricky working with this young lady is that because of her skin color there are a lot of veins (I guess that's what it is ) that show through in a blueish type of color...
I want to "fx it".. but at the same time I struggle with wanting to leave it as it is part of who she is.

Great set! #3 and #4 for the win. I don't notice any bluish tint to her skin, she looks great.

If you want to get rid of the blue, just either desaturate or drop the luminance of the blue channel. I don't see the problem, but then again these are small versions of the real thins.

I personally like number 1 the best. The others are nice... but they are standard shots. Seen it.... done it..... but 1 and 2 are unique-er. For some reason I don't love the pose on 5.... but still like the effect.

Its by knowing and mastering all the rules that you learn which ones you can break.

I like #1 a lot. Personally, I find the back of the dress in #2 a bit odd and distracting.


Constructive criticism is always appreciated.

Technically sounds but maybe a bit forgettable. Nothing jumps out as memorable or unique.

I would say pay attention to the (often far distant) left arm which gives the impression of being attrophied on most pictures.
And of coming from odd part of the body on first picture.

As the existing ambient sun highlights are on the left side of the frame, positioning the strobe on left side accordingly would have tended to provide more natural looking images, imho.

There's a few I don't like.

I feel that where she's mostly facing the camera seems better. Like in the second image, had she not been sideways, she would have looked better. Part may be due to the design of the dress.

It reminds me of a woman I photographed in the redwoods and I didn't like the way many of the sideways poses on logs looked, but enjoyed all the standing and sitting facing the camera poses.

This is photo I kept for reference of the attempts to pose sideways. I have posed someone else sideways before and liked it. So I don't know if it boils down to build, outfit, location or a combination.
