    Its that time again.

    This time, only editting done is a slight tonal bump, and some contrast bump, with a 8x10 ratio crop.

    Websize sharpening for these as well, due to resize

    Lighting Info:
    KEY/MAIN: 5ft octabox with gold and silver inserts with X1600 cam right
    FILL: 32" reflector with Sun Gold cam left
    Backlight: 580ex aimed at the cam

    The original images will go through real processing in like a week, i had an hour to process 20 images to be printed for the catalogue that day. So i will re-up those when im done. I didnt get a chance to do any real adjustments (IE: Cloning, dodgine, burning, healing, etc...), most are from a batch adjustment action.

    Everyone already said what I've been saying. I noticed those markers for the chairs as well, and the background looks like urinals. But I don't think that is your fault.

    Overall really really clean images, and your lighting is really simple but effective. I like the back light personally.

    Oh and #8 her left arm looks weird as HELL!

    You sir, are a photographer.

    The criteria: I enjoy looking at your work, and want to see more.
    Can't say that for many would-be photo guys.

    the backlight seems necessary, but it is too harsh.

    #7 is Suryacaya Ukkas. She goes by Caya though for short. She can go-go dance like a motha!

    Just a suggestion, it seems like the stool you are having them pose on is your center piece, but you are off center. If you wanted to be off to an angle, I would think you would give it even more angle.

    thanks man. I appreciate it.

    to everyone else. much love, thanks for the critiques :) ill make sure to keep the backlight in check next time. Just sucks because i normally light for one or two people, but for 20 gals, i would like to move stuff around for each girl but we have 1-2 hours to bang out the 20 chicks :)mamoru:) and then an hour to edit. 30-40 shots of each girl and its next.

    Some really nice shots there. I don't mind the backlight so much, it's a little harsh in some, but overall I like it.

    The X on the floor was the first thing I noticed.

    Great work, as usual. :cheers:

    Nice work there. I love the key light.

    I also agree that the backlight is too much but it's a minor point. I'm also not a fan of the background. Did you consider using the frosted panel doors as a backdrop??

    Next time bitch slap the client and in a very loud voice announce; "I AM TEH PRO HERE!! YOU WILL DO WHAT I WANT!!!"

    Clients appreciate it when you take control and dominate them.

    In that case, :bowdown: to them every chance you get. You don't want some Joe Pesci type coming after you with a baseball bat.
