I just bought myself a 5d for Christmas, and I'm loving it. I have only been able to do one photoshoot with this camera though, so I'd like to know what you guys think. I love the minimal amount of post processing I need to do to the files that come off of the 5d in order for them to be really pleasing to me. Let me know what you guys think. :) I know I have a lot of room for improvement, but I think I've gotten better since I first started.

Gone crazy on the eyes and they look horribly fake.

1 - Pose is a bit off - chopped off elbow. Looks like you were shooting through something as there is odd blurs around the subject.

2 - Subject appears very uncomfortable and pose is not very good, nor is expression. Shot too straight on which is less flattering to the subject. Hand chopped off. Subject is very centered, also too much head room I think.

3 - Overexposed and very harsh light on the face. Great expression though. Hand nearly cut at wrist. Try to avoid cropping at joints - try to crop between them.

These are decent start imo. I love how the IQ on the 5Dc still looks better imo than some cameras just released and this camera is many years old. Great camera body. Enjoy your new purchase and post more up.

Lovely model! Those eyes! Are they that big and that white or is that the work of post-processing?

On the third one, the catchlights seem to be coming from camera left and the primary lighting is coming in from a little less than 90 degrees from model's left.

On the second shot, her body is squared to the camera AND she has horizontal stripes. Both of those factors work against a flattering picture for a young woman. Both of those effects make her look wider than she probably is.

Welcome to POTN! Thanks for sharing your work.

Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!

They certainly are crisp, one of the things I really like about the 5D.

cpam.pix offered a good critique and I agree with it.

In addition I think you need less head room, more light and a whole bunch less AWB. I think the color is the last one is starting to get close to what she really looks like.
