    Wanted to quickly post up some shots. All shot w/ D700 w/ 70-200mm VR1 and all but the yoga sex pose are ambient light.

    I've almost always used LR2 to do post but ventured into CS4 and have been upping my game personally IMO compared to previous work. Was going for a fashion/glam look but again, looking for any and all comments.

    If you want to see any of the RAW shots, lemme know. :wiggle:

    first one is my favorite. The second one would be epic if the eyes were in focus vs. the mouth. The rest aren't as powerful, but I like the overall colors and look.

    I really like 1, but I would have like to see the background blown out more white maybe?

    2 and 3 are my favorites. 2 could be in a magazine. great shots.

    Girth, not hitting the eyes bugs the hell out of me as this is easily one of my favorite shots I've taken since getting more serious about photography, if not my favorite. I did 2 passes to try to sharpen the eyes and they're still not spot on. I could blur the veil, which might help, but the focus is definitely on the lips/mouth, more so than the eyes, but meh.

    Thanks everyone for the comments! 1, 2, and 3 are definitely better than the rest IMO as well.

    Just like SkiMax said, all these shots, with the exception of #5 are ambient light. I really should've shot these at 3200 to get a higher shutter speed to get sharper shots, but you live and learn.

    Ya, I should try messing with the background, I appreciate the input. #2 really stands out to me as well, way way way above and beyond what I've done in post previously. :wiggle:

    What a diff going from the original #2 to processed #2
    Very nice look you have got working there.

    Could easily see this in a fashion mag type of layout.

    Thanks everyone again, just trying to get better and better...it's a slow process. But I'm really digging this glam stuff, headshots and crap.

    Who wouldn't love to have a job shooting hot bitches all day and getting paid bank? Sign me up.

    Seriously, I suck too. This set really was the first time I've done post at this "level" and this is nothing compared to so many, but a huge step for me personally.

    What presets did you use? If not presents what values did you change to make things look so porcelain?
