Or D, the unique moments photography without the extra (UM) thing.....and why is it so pixellated? ;) Skin looks great!

I like your idea but it's not an option. Someone else grabbed it so I can't use it. They want to sell it to me for an insane amount of money so I told them to pound sand.

That is interesting, how do you go about trademarking your business name?

You can save your logo as png, create new watermark profile in Lightroom and set it to use pmg instead of text.

Hey Peeps

Found this in the wedding forum. If you dont know this,, You should. Its also a good thing to print off and review before you get to your locations to shoot. I always forget about the silhouettes and reflections. Cant stress enough how important telephoto compression is for your portraits

Good stuff

Thank you. Tomorrow I'm going to be doing more work for a senior at our church. We were hoping for some location work where we could do "street musician" looks, but latest weather has tomorrow full of thunderstorms, so I guess I'm setting up my backgrounds and doing some more "regular" stuff. Will review and hope that I keep impressing him. :)


I like to push buttons on thingies that take pictures. Sometimes I like to push other buttons, too.
I only bite on the second Tuesday of every week, usually only mean people - they kinda taste like chicken...

Do you have anywhere nearby that has covered awnings? It makes for nice natural, directional light and sometimes its easy to find interesting backgrounds! Good luck! :D

No... we're very rural here, and I can't think of a single awning. One person has built a covered porch I think? :(

I can do the indoor stuff. We don't have a lot, and nothing that is completely artificially lit (we have one with flash for fill light only). I picked up a CPL in case I need it for when we're doing pictures with his sax - worried a bit about glare from it. I know that some people use them for car shows, etc., so figure it could be helpful with gleaming metallic instruments, too. :)

This is the final edit on this shot before it gets shipped to her agency on friday. Dodged the highlights and burned in a bit more contrast in the shadow areas. Used portraiture at 76% opacity.

Can I ask one question? It's a great shot but the pupils looks so unnatural? Is it me or are you photo shopping those in? It just seems to me that although enlarged pupils look better, they should fall someone naturally in the center of the iris.

Please correct me if I'm wrong...

Here is my skin softening contribution. I dont use any of the portraiture programs or add-ons, I simply use a gaussian blur over select areas of the skin then adjust opacity to taste. I like to see texture in the skin, Im not a fan of the porceline look, skin has texture, your helping someone look better, not fake. I just sharpen the eyes and sometimes lips , jewelery,etc... with a mask with high pass sharpening technique.

Mike,
I almost bought this same fabric! Joann Fabrics,right? I think they have a sliver and pink also I saw. Cool shot. I like your skin processing. SKIN HAS TEXTURE!! :) I think I am going to pick up some of that fabric soon. Looks Good. Mike , my only nitpick would be her left cheek, looks a little rough. If it's me I apologize.
