    Default A Portraiture of a Friend



    1. In which area is critique or feedback to be given?
    1. Lighting technique
    2. Model's pose
    3. Post processing

    2. What were you hoping to achieve with this image?
    I hope to bring out the model's strong personality with a tint of sensuality.

    3. Under what circumstance was the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    1. D90, 80-200mm @ 80mm, ISO100, 1/30sec, f5.6
    2. Simple Home 2 Lights setup in the living room, with main speedlight with hard cap diffuser on model's left side @ 1/8, 2nd speedlight as separation light directed at the white wall behind model @ 1/16
    3. Since both of us are doing a shoot for the 1st time, I had a hard time getting her to pose as naturally as possible. Out of the whole lot, this seems to appeal to me more, mainly the strong look from her eyes.
    4. Smooth skin technique; airbrushing was used


    4. Thread-starter's personal thoughts about the image.
    It's not entirely a perfectly executed shoot. There are areas where light wasn't diffused nicely.
    Of the whole lot, this is 1 of the images which I feel is able to portray her strong personality.

    I hope to further improve on both my lighting/shooting & post processing techniques.
    Appreciate your kind comments and feedback.

    My simple thoughts is that, the photo is too tight.
    No enough "head room".

    Lighting is not even. Can see strong shadow on her left arm. Somehow I don't find the pose attractive but rather it's distracting the viewer from the model's face. Maybe you can try taking a series of shots in different poses and see what suits her best?

    The model does not seem very happy and willing to post for the photographer. Anyway, the pic is too tight and model post is not attractive.

    I don't see a strong personality, really.. And the 'tint of sensuality' was made awkward instead by the pose. Sorry mate.
