I used two 285hv shooting into umbrellas, one camera right @ 45ยบ @ 1/4 power, one straight on with umbrella slightly closed at 1/16 power. I had two Vivitar 2800 with some flags velcro on the side pointed at the paper background. I also had my circler polarized filter on, Doh! Didn't realized I left it on there from before until afterwards while putting the camera away... I was wondering why I was shooting at a higher f stop...

First thing that catches my eye are that the poses look a bit awkward. The pics seem a bit flat with not much pop. I'd say add saturation but I'm not 100% sure. Lighting looks good on the model, a bit hot on the background

These are fashion photos, the poses are supposed to look awkward, convoluted and all that good stuff.

Look at Vogue and so on, fashion photos are shot flat as to not put shadows on the product.

The background lights could have either been evened out or used just one. But if I took these, I'd be happy with them.

There's a difference between fashion awkward and just plain awkward. The first is more the former, the second more the latter.

We agree to disagree, friend.

I think these are great!
Don't change a damn thing.

People spend hours PPing backgrounds to get that look too.

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.

Hello friend,

Thanks for the comment on my work!

The shot you're questioning, she was about 8 feet from the backdrop and the ACK320 was RIGHT on top of the backdrop lol. On my blog, I posted a photo tutorial of how I get my backdrops done. You can click the link here (external link), it's got lingerie in it, so I don't want to offend.

not too bad for your first try. but -
they are all soft. way too soft. maybe it has something to do with the gear. maybe it's the PP. some of them are overexposed some are under.
no really digging the poses.
