why the neck tilt? Also, are you using a modeling lamp of any kind? Would love to see more color in the eyes. It looks like the room was dark so you see a more dilated pupil

thanks rick.

max; why not the neck tilt, and there's no modeling lamp (if I had one, the pupils wouldn't seem so dilated). i use a 580II for main and 430II for hair or bg.

Not to speak for max but to me it looks uncomfortable unnatural and extreme. IMO it makes the neck look thicker than it probably is.

If you don't know why you are posing a model a cretin way you probably shouldn't (and just felt like trying it is a valid reason), it's like everyone now with the tilted horizons everyone does it because everyone else is. It should be a goal as a photographer to be intentional with things.

Put me in the "neck is too tilted" camp. Looks almost painful. For me, it's distracting from an otherwise nicely shot portrait (great light, awesome focus/sharpness).

I like the feel of #3 the most, although her left eye is a little dark and, again, the neck tilt seems a little awkward. Love the movement of the hair and the rim lighting, though. And her facial expression give a good mood.

That's whats cool (and sucks) about being a photographer, people can like different things. The part that sucks is that if you are getting paid you may have an art director that is asking you to do something that makes you want to puke ;)

The head tilt doesn't bother me but I see the same bland expression in all three shots. I think she would probably look great with a full-on smile, or a closed-mouth flirtatious smile.

Noted, though generally I think this type of beauty works better without smiling. It was her first time time doing any type of shoot, in all I think we got some good ones.

Skin tone is nice, but I have to agree with the others, the head tilt is awkward, and the same expressionless expression is kinda, well, not flattering to her.
