    I went down to the photo lab to develop some film today and one of my friends was down there taking some pictures of this girl, I guess she is a friend of his.

    I asked if I could try a few shots and she didn't mind. This is what I came up with.

    D300
    50mm
    f/1.4
    1/200
    ISO 280

    2 hot lights at 45 degrees with umbrellas

    I cleaned up her face, brightened eyes a bit, and did a curves adjustment in photoshop.

    I don't do a lot of portraits, this is my first time shooting a person in a studio environment. I want some feedback so I can get some good pics of my gf when she comes in town next :x:

    be gentle :hs:

    Ugly chick, good pic :)

    A bit less shallow DOF would probably not have hurt. I don't like that the chin is blurry.

    The angle makes it look as if the next picture in the series will have her with a dick in her mouth.

    I'm not really liking it. Her hair melts into the background...needs some seperation.

    Ears OOF as well. Stop down a bit and get the whole head in focus.

    True, I just got the 50/1.4 today so I wanted to see how it looked at 1.4 - but I definitely agree, I'll stop it down a bit in the future.

    I actually got what I was going for (for the most part), I just wanted her to be looking up and only her eyes in focus.

    The text on her shirt makes my head crazy...tell her to wear a shirt with no text or to just take it off. :naughty:

    :rofl:

    :werd: and that the text is OUTLINED rather than block makes it looks shakey

    Blue shirt with white type and white headband kills it. Also, I think you could do with less body and a hair more DOF.

    I don't see anything wrong with her, but then again I'm not real picky.
