Hi everyone!

I did a shoot with a friend of mine this weekend.
It was the first time I ever used a flash (during a portrait shoot) and actually the second ('serious') attempt at portrait photography.

What do you think of the following? C&C is appreciated! :D

I love them all especially 4! Her pose in #2 doesn't seem to be comfortable...IMO.

1) If the model is upside down, you have to invert your light as well. Lower the key light and give her proper shadows on the face... this will make her breasts larger as well.

2) I like. You probably didn't have enough room to back up, but you have to go into telephoto or at least use a normal lens. Her wrists are huge. Also move the light to the side out of the family of angles of glass in the background. This way you'll get rid of the nasty reflections.

3) The expression and direct flash won't do it.

4) Good job on not getting the nose cross the cheek, but there's something wrong with your fill light. It looks like she's lit by two suns and it's unnatural. The light is pretty harsh as well.

5) Good job getting the whites under the iris to show up. The shadows are bit too heavy - lower the keylight.

Awesome for a second attempt and good model. Very few people can handle #5

Number 5 really doesn't do it for me. It's too obviously a mirrored image, and it makes her face seem wider than it actually is, when comparing with say #2.

Don't get me wrong, the lighting and black and white conversion on it is top notch, it's just the fact I can tell it's mirrored that puts me off.

Apart from that I love #2.

I didn't notice the pose in #2 until now... Now you've said so, yes...it does look a little awkward.

Hi! Thanks very much for the input. The light in #1 came from the ceiling above (bounced flash) and a small white reflector to model's right. What would have been a better set-up with this equipment?
#2, indeed there wasn't a lot of space. I don't see the huge wrist. :P
#4, I used two simple lights of each 500W on both sides of the model.
#5, thanks. I've got to be honest, this is a heavily pp'd image of here. I wanted to try 'mirror face' once, and here's the result. :D

Thanks for your honest reply. You either like it or not, simple! :D Like I said, it's indeed mirrored, but I tried to do it as subtle as possible. Too bad you could tell so easily! :p

Great stuff. #1 doesn't really do it for me - it seems a little uncomfortable or something.

I really like #2 and #4.

#3 and #5 I think could do with increased depth of field, so everything in shot is in focus.
