    Edits: Left is Before, Right is After

    Im not too big on the upside down thing myself, but she REALLY loved this one while we were going thru the pictures. Aside from that point. This was a first for me. Indoors, white backdrop and a nude model. Based on these 2 photos (I might upload more later on), what could I improve on?

    Tone down the yellow. It's way too saturated.

    if she was winking in that one I might like it better :o

    hmm, you think using the warm/cool slider in lightroom would fix what you guys are dis liking? i already de-saturated the orange and yellow quite a bit. And there is a subtle difference between the 2 images.

    also, i like the before on the second shot...you can see her freckles better and she has more color in her face

    I think you're right about using the warming/cooling slider in Lightroom. Play around with it :dunno:

    I fail to see the rest of the set here...


    PS - the higher saturation shots are better, despite OT's whining. The idea behind the shot is colorful, playful, etc. The saturation plays into that very nicely. As long as you're not f'ing up the color balance (which you're not), it works.

    Not to mention that her skin and face look MUCH better in the 'before' #2 shot. You get more skin detail in the highlights and freckles.
