    Not sure if I like it or not, was trying to do something a bit different from the normal.

    But the main reason I was hired was to get some shots of her ridiculous decorations...

    i'm torn on it. it's a nice pic, but part of me feels the lead-in on it is just too distracting. i only like pictures like that if it's a single person.

    also i'm offended you assume we want nudes of the girl. i was going to ask for the guy, but shit there goes that idea

    also, how the hell do you get such clean/crisp pictures? my pics look like i'm shooting on a 10yr old point and shoot compared to yours

    I like the idea, much different than what other people would have done, I just don't like the lighting. They're lit up, but there is a definitely drop off of light behind them and the foreground shouldn't be "bright" but should be more "lit" if that makes sense. Basically, it looks like you concentrated the light to the viewer and that's the part that bugs.

    Its different. I just think if you crop off the left hand side where its dark it would be better. The Shadow is pulling my attention to the top left

    I think the shadows in the top left corner, and behind the ornaments hanging off the mantle are distracting. Also the girls hands in front of her are distracting (ie the way she's holding them).
