    First model shoot cc

    Her upper lip looks kinda gross, no nudes. But it was fun.

    Just did some color adjustments.

    edit:

    I have a real bad habit of not editing the photos, but I'll definitely look into it more into the future.

    here's a setup shot

    Clone tool is your friend. Get rid of the random shit in the back and it's not too bad. Clean up her skin too.

    Her skin is pretty bad, at least on her right side. Still trying to learn on skin retouching.

    But I did make some minor edits last night after your post.

    No way am I claiming to be a pro, since it was my first shot. Her face is in focus, but I had to back down of the clarity due to her skin, which probably made her face to appear oof.

    They're real too :bigthumb:

    :h5:

    :x:

    I'm at work, I'll see if I can get CS2/3 working.

    It's kinda gross looking :o


    Thanks for the CC guys. I'll try and post up more, later on today.

    I don't know. I just toned down the clarity, but I'm sure it has something to do with the clone and smudge tools.

    Thanks Mrtwo. I dread uploading pictures, but I'll see if I can get more done today.

    I'm shooting a BMW 6 series tonight. Let me know if you're interested in joining me cause I'm going to call to confirm the owner in a bit.

    It seems that I attract of a lot of BMW attention.

    PM replied.

    This is my third shoot.

    Here's a little timeline:

    My very first shoot of a "model". I really had no clue what I was doing, I came in at the end of the day, and just made due. This was taken maybe in April 08?

    [​IMG]

    This is my second(friend engagement) taken maybe three weeks ago?

    color balance on #1 is butter, but by #4 she's turned into an oompa loompa. WTF?

    Oh, and in both 1 and 4 her chesticles are more in focus than her eyes. Were you having trouble concentrating? :naughty:

    #2 is by far my favorite, the pose isn't pornish, the DOF & focus are spot on and the color is decent, albeit a tad too warm. The only thing I don't like is her expression. I would have liked eye contact and a hint of a smirk/smile to make it a bit more playful.

    Finally some good CC.

    I might be able to explain the difference in color balance among the pics.

    Where she is crawling, we were in a yellow room, with semi ironed sheets hanging from the wall, and one on the ground. With this environment, it probably just made her skin slightly more yellow.

    When she's on the bed, we were in a light tan room with nothing covering the walls, so this might have made everything to feel warmer. This is my theory, I could be totally wrong.


    As for the focusing issue, I was switching back and fourth from spot focusing to auto focusing. We also had a problem with the girl's sister. She would mouth off every time I'd pose her a certain way, and disrupt my train of thought. Without any notice she'd come in, and just tell her to pose going against what I had said. Later, she'd put her back and ask me if she's doing it right. Next time someone does this, I'm going to tell her to let me do her job and STFU. Again, this was my first time, so I didn't know what to expect or how to react, but after losing a few awesome shots, I think it went well.

    Again, thanks for the CC.

    Pick yourself up a Whibal card for shoots like this. That way you can get consistent color balance across an entire shoot regardless of ambient light.

    :cool:
