I love discovering and working with new talent. Here are a few frames from my latest client, Lindsey.

very nice, though on the last one she seems to float somehow, maybe because she has her right foot up and the light on her legs is very different. Very nice light on the rest!


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:

like image 1 nice lighting and pose but the leg looks longer than it should.......the rest of the images in the water some how just don't work for me they look a little bit like they are composite images especially the last
it might just be the angle / shooting from below that is doing it (wide angel lens ??? ) cant see the data from the shots


Stuff....

Great set! I love the lighting and processing. #3 is my favorite. Perspective distortion on her leg/foot in #1 is really distracting though.

I can't stop studying this set. I love the lighting! This is how I want my photos to look! Someday! I keep practicing. Catalystsupreme these are awesome.

SoCalTiger, I see what you are referring to in pic one. As a novice I have to ask, how could have been avoided? And what caused it?

This is a really good read:
https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=672913

tl;dr:
Things that are closer to the camera look bigger than things further away. So, for portraiture, you generally want to stick with longer focal lengths so that you can be further away from your subject for your desired framing. The wider FL you use, the closer you generally have to stand to your subject and this exacerbates the effect of perspective distortion.

Great read! I will place the original up when I get home. That particular was cropped down. The distorted look came from the blur I added. That blur gave the human eye the illusion that the distance was shorter. Her body was never in any danger of being distorted. I sometimes use that effect to add emphasis on my subject. Perhaps, I put it in a bad location. Keep in mind, Lindsey is 6'0 tall. (The girl got legs!! lol:D)

48' inch Octo on the first. The rest were with a small softbox with a canon 600ex-rt speedlite

Indeed. Im going to remove that blur.. To perhaps change the perspective from her leg and feet. Great feedback guys!

Always a fan of your stobist work, Gary!

But yea, I'm not a fan of the blur in 1. It looks too out of place with the rest of the image crisp. Also, there is a patch of trees directly to her right that is taller than the rest of the trees. It takes my eyes away from her every now and then. I'd clone that down to make it shorter.

These are awesome.
I especially liked 2 and 4.

If you don't mind me asking, what did you do to #4? A turquoise gradient map with a low opacity?
