    :cool:

    I'm guessing she's not going to like #1 as you see straight into her armpit. chicks usually don't like that :hs:

    on #2 it would have been nice to have the DOF carry to the back eye

    #2 would be good if both eyes were in focus.

    i agree. i was using the 85 1.2 and i tend to blast away wide open with it.

    its so stupidly expensive i just cant let myself stop it down :hs:

    not to be the typical dick, but for a "glamour" shot she sure went light on the makeup.

    "typical dick" advice is what i need. we'll probably do it again in a few weeks so it would help if i had some better direction. this was really just screwing around for an hour trying to think of "sexy" poses.

    I like the second shot more. I think the pose is good, her expression is spot on, and just the little bit of clevage is sexy without being trashy but like was said before, the shallow DOF on the eyes and the strange horizontal reflection in them I don't like.

    2nd shot seems a little orange to me, keep in mind I'm on my work pc and not calibrated. perhaps fix the red skin, or check your temp in ACR.
    Also as mentioned no need for 1.2, especially if you're shooting strobes (which I would be in this case), and I'd like to see the catch lights in her eyes from the strobes.
    little bit of skin smoothing (portraiture works wonders)
    and also make sure she's not putting any pressure on her hand to distort her face etc.


    in the first one the arm pit can be cleaned up with some cloning/patching and running portraiture so I wouldn't worry too much about that IMO. Good catch lights though, those are important in this type of shot IMO. Clean up some of the creases on her neck though.

    and yeah, she needs to do a little more makeup, some girls like natural, but on camera make up really helps. Some makeup would've really helped her lips which to me seem a little thin, there's stuff you can do in post to make 'em pop a little more though.
