    i got good feedback on them and addressed a few problems:




    these are two shots from this week. my first one was too red, so i went way too blue on this one :p. i'd like to clone out the shadow on her neck but ill do that later. she's wearing more makeup and the lens is stopped down. there are strong catch lights in both pics. what else can i do?

    I'm pretty sure she was wearing game pads in at least one photo.

    I know she doesn't have a double chin, but it looks like it.

    try a pure black & white on the one that has the blue tint now.

    she's got very thin lips; I think she looks better when her mouth is closed and not showing any teeth.

    eyes look much better this time, they pop a lot more:bigthumb:, not just the catch lights, but the colors and pp as well

    the chin thing as mentioned, it might be the way she's laying, but along the right side of her jaw line it looks like it's fat, she also appears to have a pointy chin, a little liquify will help her with that (I may or may not have done that in the one I showed you).
    it almost seems her head is turned a little too much as you're losing the shape of the face on her left side in that photo, also seems to be a little blown out right there (I'm on my work computer though so take it with a grain of salt)
    fuck the game controllers, if you're gonna do a hand bra then do it right:o.
    I also agree with the mouth closed thing, she has thin lips and needs the mouth closed to accentuate them. You can do some dodge/burn on them to make them appear fuller, but you still don't have a lot to work with.
    also with her neck being so straight, clean up some of the wrinkle lines on it with clone or patch IMO

    the blue one...try it in BW as suggested, especially since it looks blown out:o

    this shoot did look better than the first though:bigthumb:
