Hey everyone. I had my first go at portrait photography yesterday. I had a friend that needed headshots done and somehow (meh, I try and play it off, but I'm a sucker) got roped into taking a few shots of a few girls that showed up. I have no real experience in portrait photography (I'm a landscapes guy), so please let me know what I did right, and what you might have been done a bit differently.

Thanks in advance for the feedback,

Stefan

I think they look really nice, you did a great job! Poses are fine, skin tones nice, eyes are beautiful, nothing wrong with the lighting that I can see, heck nothing I can complain about at all!:)

Iron the backdrop maybe? I know it's hard to do when on location. That's all I got.

I had this happen to me once and I used the "healing brush" in photoshop to fix the wrinkles.:oops: Lucky for me it was a black sheet also.

Nice job. The lighting looks good. I would watch for those loose hairs though. It will save you a ton of time in pp. :0)

Yeah, we tried ironing it pretty quick, but clearly we didn't do a good enough job.

I always take my PS healer brush on location with me. ;)

I like #2 the best. Seems she's a lot more relaxed in that shot
