Thanks for the comments... for the background my goal was to nuke the "studio grey" paper white... it didn't work. The polarized filter didn't help me but I think the flashes were too close to the background, they were about 4' out. Maybe everything should've moved forward a few more feet.
Jay, I was checking out your blog, really nice work. The shot with the woman on the bean bag a few posts down, do you recall how far out your model was from the background and where your AKC320 was positioned?
In processing the shots, I did drop the vibrance and the saturation in presence and in the highlights, the hue and saturation was knocked down too, tried making things a little more interesting.
For the poses, I don't fully understand the extreme dislocated shoulder look that are in the mags. I brought some Vogue mags along that I tagged shots that I liked for inspiration, but they weren't working. I tried for a little action vs a static looking shot, but my timing wasn't the greatest.
After the client saw the contact sheets, she didn't care for the color processing nor the action shots but liked others so I'll process those and post them.
