    sort of...

    i was in charge of portraits after they did the "run-way" walk.

    I basically did 3 poses with each girl, had like 25-30 of them in and out in 10-15 minutes. :bigok:

    Straight on with hand on hip, turned looking over shoulder smiling, then turned over shoulder "serious" look.

    Shadows on the BG bc the kid who was supposed to bring me a 3rd flash forgot :ugh: - but I kinda like the depth it provides

    Here's a few I liked:

    and a fun shot of the rest of the Photo Club, which I'm not in, so I offered to take their picture :mamoru:

    I'll say nice work for the amount of time you had to get things together and then shoot that many in a short time.

    well thanks :) it was pretty informal.

    they were supposed to come in at 9:00 for portraits, i get there at 8:00 to setup and make sure I get things right.

    They walk in at 8:10 ready for portraits, and my backdrop was like half up :rofl: so I was in a pretty big rush, but I'm happy with them.

    Lighting seems kind of harsh.

    girl #7 looks like she would be enjoyable.

    And that 'girl' in the photo club looks exactly like this guy from my high school days.
    Minus the long hair.
    Weird.

    I think I need to watch the Onelight dvds again, i'm having trouble getting good results with one key light.

    I thought #6 was cute in a kinda strange way :wiggle:

    if you had them stand further out from the wall, I think there would be fewer shadows

    that would also cause the wall to turn dark grey, which I didn't want to happen ;)

    they wanted a white/ light grey backdrop

    but if i had had the 3rd flash like I was supposed to, I could've stepped them off the wall and flashed it :bigok:

    Using soft box or umbrella?


    Perhaps she looks like a jailbait that's why you think she is cute in a strange way. :nickos:

    lighting is flat? are you looking at the same pictures I am looking at? :squint:

    look at #1, how is that the least bit flat?

    describe what you mean by flat :dunno:

    a 20" square softbox, not very big. just a cheapo thing I got recently.

    I would have guessed it was direct flash with a stofen, not a soft box. Real harsh.

    I guess I didn't mean flat. I dont like how there isnt a hair light. I also hate all the shadows. There's shadows the on the girl's arms as well as the background.
    There's a girls bra strap hanging out and some of the pics you cut of a large portion of her arm.

    I dont mean to be a dick, but I've been drinking and I know you're a good photographer. ;)

    i thought you were going to use a rim light / hair light... These pics look like one light.

    bringing the models further away from the background wouldn't have turned the background dark if you move your key light back as well.

    I would have used a silver umbrella (bounced) up high and slightly camera left (or right) for the key light. Those small soft boxes are only good for headshots where you can get really really close with the light. Then I would have used another silver or white shoot through umbrella at shoulder height behind and opposite the key light for the rim. No background light necessary

    How close was the soft box? Closer = softer light.
