I like the idea of the white dog/black dress! I hope you did a set of those. And the water/red dress ones are lovely. Great light, colors and reflection!

Very nice though I wish she were looking the other way "into" the light instead of away. Her face is dark.

+1 on your lighting kit and setup. Nicely "Phamsteresque" on the last few. Rich colors and poses.

wow!! some room for nitpicking here. fresh meat ;)) muhaha! !:))

last 3 - don't like the blown armpit shot.
I wish the model looked at the camera.
number 7 is outstanding composition, light, color wise but... she is busy looking somewhere ;)

4 and 5 are sweet!

3 - the dog is nuked. (burn midtones?)

2 is very nice even in hard light.

1 is ok just wish i saw some more of her legs. Nothing dirty here ;)

Absolutely wonderful set!! Would you share your lighting setup?


Thanks everybody for the comments and critiques.
For the first two, I used a bare 580exII triggered by Radiopoppers . My 580exII on camera was only acting as master. The rest of the shots were the same but used a 28x28 Westcott Softbox.
Thanks again.

ok.. can i come in and talk about these>?

Roy.. you are doing a good job with the photos..

and i am sure you would like some feed back to make these even better on your next subject or if you have a second session with her... right>?

what i do when work with a subject - even as gorgeous as yours..

1. determine face shape. and apply what lighting fits..
2. consistently short light the female subjects if possible. (makes the face look longer) - your subject doesn't need short lighting but #7 is almost a perfect shot and why it looks awesome is because the short lighting is applied..
3. find the hair part and shot from the open side (yours is left side of her face.. you should give her more photos from her left side "open side of hair") you probably have them, but i don't know and i see the first 5 photos are from her closed side hair part.. all from the same angle - problems i have learned with this, is right eyes are covered up.. and shadows from the over hanging hair could come into play.. #2 is example of what talking about.

4. i also look for lazy eye of the subject. find out when they smile what happens with their eyes.. that way i don't have them do certain smiles full, half or small.. etc. - her i don't think you have any issues.. - i am just saying what i do when i go thru my process..

anyways... roy.. you do good work.. and don't take this from the phamster is bad.. i am just sharing my stuff

great set....I thought the same thing as Pham as to the angle you were shooting in relation to the part of her hair. I am also curious what others think of the ankles crop on #6. Does this work? I am trying to do more creative crops.

These are beautiful.. Take the advice from some of the others and they would be even better. They are still beautiful now though:)
