Bang.......ok la......considering the lighting, we just use the flash nia.........tadak umbrella or strobe........we still learning ma........hahaStrifeYun------thin the 2nd pic the arm lokks like might not be hers , maybe lighten the skin tone of the arm.
juste_millieu------#1 she look fake, esp the eye. hmm.. her left arm looks weird. u use the liquify filter? the shadow of the wine glass spoil the image.
#2 angle not correct. looks like a man's arm.
lkkang-----I think the composition needs to be improved.
The shot and composition looks boring to me.
lighting wise, not bad I should say.
sims0002-------Erm, I give my noob comments:
Picture Number 1:
- The lighting caused the face to look like 2-Dimensional, as if the face was a cut and paste picture onto the body?
- The hands holding the glass? There's this disconnection from the main arm? The lighting on the hand and the arms "may" make people see it as another person's hand?
- The shadows of the glass casted onto her shoulders?
- Lost of details of the hair on her right?
Picture Number 2:
- Lighting abit too harsh for the theme? (I think for both pics lighting is kinda harsh?)
- Picture cropped all at the joints (i.e neck, elbows)?
- The arm in the foreground looked big? Maybe could have shot at a different angle?
But ultimately, we shouldn't restrict ourselves to taking pictures to follow a certain standard? Else there will be no creativity in it? Usually the "wow" pics are those out of the world pics, where it captures more attention and are more interesting? Else we'll be just working towards being another "standard" photographer?
Well its your photograph, so its your own rulez man~ If you think its right, heck it~! Woohoo~!
jawzsg-------Hi abang, good effort, read what Ikkang has stated earlier... for non-expression shots, a closer crop usually works better, try moving in close next time.
The model's right hairline is blended into the shadow, losing some distinction. Also, lighting seemed a bit flat. I briefly ran it through PS and came up with this comparison
Above are just my 2 cents and there may be better solution from other PS expert. However, the best solution is to either lower your flash intensity, have a filler or reflector to the background or reposition your cameller or model to avoid the shadow blending. Your 2nd pic is good in that aspect.
hope I don't mahlu myself with the above C&C.. kekekeke..
WOW Really alots of mistakes. Now I know why I kena left right centre. I review all the shots and compare This is the worst TFCD I ever done. And all the critiqs point to the same procesing is not done properly. The way shots was taken very poor compositions. Thank you guys will prints and tape on my pictures and framed. You guys ROCKS.
