    She's actually already graduated (07), but a couple months ago I took her downtown to shoot a little cause she offered and I could use the practice. Here's my fav out of the set, I think. I pp'd it last night so let me know what you think.

    This pose is good, but I totally suck at posing most of the time. I need to practice/read up on that for sure. (books/websites w/ posing ideas or info would be great kthx)

    I like it all except for the feeling she's laying down instead of leaning against.

    A little less of an angle, and crop out what looks like a fence post (?) on the left side. And maybe clean up the random sprig of weed/vine sticking out behind her. But that's just my preference. I think this is a really great shot and I like your pp work.

    The vine thing is what has been bugging me, but I wanted to see if others noticed it as easily (figured that'd be the case). I kinda suck at the clone tool on big things like that, pimples and blemishes are alright but vines and whatnot maybe not so much. We'll see what I can do tho. Suggestions on how to best do that are welcome, for sure.

    The thing on the left was part of a wall or something there, I may try some different crops there to see how it works. I can see how it is or could be distracting, but if I crop that out I lose the DOF in the fence, which I kinda liked. I'll mess with it a bit and see whats up.

    Thanks for the comment.

    NVM it started working Flickr must have just been slow.


    Less angle, do it in portrait orientation get more of her.

    Cut the vine, or clone it out

    Other than that, she's cute, but her smile looks like she was holding it too long

    i wouldnt worry about the branch, it's framing her head in a natural / lucky way and most people (customers, i.e. seniors and parents) aren't going to notice it. It's not worth spending time messing around with.

    Gotcha. Funny thing is.. every non-photographer type (mom, senior, whatever) that has seen it is like 'OhHH1!!1!` I LIKE THAT ANGLE THING YOU DID!!1~'.

    But, I agree that the angle is a bit extreme. There is enough room that I might be able to straighten it out a bit in the shop without losing too much. So, I'll try that later and see how it looks.

    One last picky thing I noticed (quality is in the details). Straighten out the wrinkles on the bottom of her shirt. Of course, if you end up rotating it, you'll probably crop that off anyway.

    Wow, didn't seem like it was at that much of an extreme angle until you did that. I'll definitely keep that in mind when shooting next time. I was like 'OH I want some angled isht!', then shot that and was like 'money!'. Buuut.. I went overboard.
    Thanks.

    Oh yeah, good call. I saw that initially in processing and just kinda never came back to it or thought much about it. But I should have. I'll fix that up later too if rotating it doesn't crop it out.

    I really like the photo. I even like the angle. You got lucky with in that you had a pretty model to start with. The only thing I do not like is the vine, but that is a small thing to me.
