    C&C on these two pics please? Yes I'm the faggot in the 2nd picture :run:

    D300 and 80-200 @ 80
    f/4 and 1/250
    Fill flash (still didn't get quite enough to her eyes IMO)
    Debating a tighter crop on this one, but I do like it as is too.

    how would you crop it :dunno:
    I tried a tighter crop but I like keeping the greenery in the bg as well

    :werd: didn't notice that, thanks.

    The camera was on a tripod only about 1 foot from the ground (as low as I could go), it was a big slope that went down to the tree, not really any other choice, but I agree, thanks :h5:

    everything always needs more bokeh :yum:

    The tree idea is neat but it feels, to me, that it needs to be either tighter or looser. I feel like its just in a spot thats not so great right now. I also dont like how she looks like shes floating on that tree or the distracting limb coming out of nowhere on the right of the frame.

    #2, to me, has a busy background and Id rather see your hands in it.

    Just two cents from a guy who never shoots this stuff.

    For her pose in the first one, I don't know about having her hands in between her legs like that. I think her right hand would look better if it was on the outside of her thigh... but what do I know :rofl:

    btw, your gf is :naughty: :h5:

    I'd bump up the FEC by at least 1/3 stop, may be 2/3

    no offense taken, don't worry I'm used to it.

    I didnt direct her hands, i just let her do what was natural, I figured it would look less awkward. I don't really do a lot of portraits, we were just out messing around. I'll pay attention to hand/ arm position next time

    thanks :coold:

    I'm not very good with a flash, is that flash exposure compensation? what would that do? details? thx :h5:

    :naughty:

    tripod and timer

    :werd:

    fill flash usually means that it isn't the primary light source, then natural light was, the word fill is used because it fills in the areas that the natural light doesn't get, for example the eyes.

    I'm not familiar with Nikon bodies, but there's usually a button or option to adjust the light output on the flash through the body or through the flash itself.

    On Canon flashes, if you adjust the FEC on the flash, it'll override the setting on the body. If you leave the FEC on the flash at default, then you can adjust it on the body. I prefer adjusting the FEC on the body since it's quicker and easier than on Canon flashes.

    For shots like this, I'll shoot at FEC +2/3 to 1 to fill in the shadows

    You can get the same effect by using the flash in Manual mode. I prefer shooting in ETTL and using FEC to adjust the flash output.
