    I'm tired but I really wanted to see how these pics turned out. Here are 6 from a studio shoot w/ Jessica today.

    Although I have played around in my studio w/ my lighting equipment for a bit now this is technically my first studio shoot. :)

    These have been sized, globally sharpened, and web saved. I'm going to take some time tomorrow and actually do correct sharpening and dodging and burning. I'm quite surprised at how well they turned out from the camera tho!

    in your high keys the backgrounds aren't all clean...and some of the edges look a little messy.well done for first attempt though for sure!

    For me I like 1 and 3

    Ya it kind of looks like the right light was either not putting out as much (although it metered the same as the left) or it was at a slightly different angle causing it to have falloff.
    I'm not quite sure what I could have done to get the ground lit a bit more at her feet. I had 4 lights for those shots... 2 on the background and 2 for the model. I'm going to have to shoot this tethered next time so I can try and correct it right away.

    Thanks

    either way, pop them into cs2, duplicate the background layer, open up the curves adjustment, click white eyedropper tool then click just to the side of her feet in the darker area...presto, white background. use a mask and hide the curves adjustment on the model herself. i just played with it on my end here doing exactly that and it took like 2 mins max, and that's working with the web version. :)

    The ringflash one is definitely my favourite. Best overall pose/expression for her as well, I'd say.

    damnit... why couldn't I be awake while the pics were not showing up. I've never had problems w/ my server (that I know of) and of course... the time I do I'm asleep and can't check it out. :o

    This isn't the first time your shit has been down/slow. Few of the pics from the AZ threads were having trouble as well. Appeared to be DNS issues
