#2 looks :thumbsup: ... nice feel to it too =) ... for 1 and 3 ... hmmm ... agree that they look too much like a fashion pic ... and the tilt doesn't work for me ... but then ... thats just my 2 cents =/ ...
Agreed marc, wish I had that option but I thought that would give the greatest effect in a studio shot. Ambient lighting seemed more natural... *sigh* no justification for lamps nor extra slave flashes, heh
Sam, shifting away from cars? Never.
Just been on a long break to clear my mind for fresh ideas.
I do admit that the there is no definitive point to lead the viewer to the furniture (cept for pic#2) but the approach in mind was to attempt to highlight both the human body with the furniture... because that's what's furniture is all about =)
DOnt think I need a professional model, my budget & portraiture is horrible at the moment =)
I think there's a lot of improvement on the model even if you don't intend to use a professional. Minor things like blemishes on the feet (eg: mosquito scars, patches, etc..) can use make up to cover up. Of course PS can also do it.
the thick popping up viens on hands and legs: raise the hands and leg up so the blood inside flow backwards and the veins will flatten before taking the shot. Be quick though becos the viens will pop up very fast. Raising the legs may be awkward but.. :dunno: the preference of thick veins is very individual. I prefer not to have them
#3 folding the jeans doesn't really work for me.. to show more of the feet, pull up more of the jeans and distribute along the legs or get a shorter pair.
