Over PS-ed, esp #02.

Standard Kimberley look-- she should consider refreshing it. Gets boring after a while.

Is the horse real?

In addition to buying the bouquet, I wonder if Kim rented the horse as well...

You have to think about that. We all have our comfort zones, as you know. One of the comfort zone things models do is fall into the same expression, same smile, same pose for almost every shot simply because it worked in the past.

You have a lot of shots on CS, so if you compare them, you can see the similiarities.

For growth and development, it is important to change continually. New look, new expression, new attitude, new lighting, new angles... keep stretching the envelope.

Variety is important, for a commercial model it will show clients what you are capable of; for a freelance model, it will allow you to grow and develop.

Think themes. For instance, a jungle theme would have you covered in mud-- there's a very famous picture of a model who got all covered in mud for a pre-historic tribal woman theme. Obviously, you'd have to learn new expressions and poses to go with such a theme-- can't be smiling sweetly like a school girl any more.

Think themes! Sex kitten? Shy schoolgirl? Corporate climber? Adventurer? Amazon warrior?

For each of these, you'd have to think about hair, makeup, props, sets, location, poses and expressions. For the photographer, they'd have to think about angles, lighting, focal lengths, etc.

Make it simpler-- no need to go jungle or desert-- just try to do a shoot where you don't smile, where your hair and makeup are different so that it's not instantly recognisable as you. Right away you'll have to think about what you have to do in front of the camera, since you're no longer in your comfort zone.

Eschew gothic-- that's too easy. Perhaps an androgynous look? Although I don't think you should shave bald. Or just do a theme of sorrow, or hard-edged determination, something like Uma Thurman in Kill Bill (maybe you could even get the Bruce Lee bodysuit).

Agreed. Guess I overdid the USM.
Shot was taken almost at noon. Can see that the lights are rather harsh.

Thanks Wai Leong for your insight. I did learn alot from this.:thumbsup:
But to be fair to Kim, I posted these shots that I think are rather on the 'safe side.'
She have ideas and expressions that she did tried out at the shoot which I think are rather unique and original.
Gotta hand it to her....as a model she is obliging and professional in all aspects during the shoot.

You might be right. But I kinda like the mood in these two pics without the fill.

This is a bridal shoot, so it's more smiling and lovely photos. If its other themes, I will work on the other aspects. Nevertheless, Thanks so much for the advice ! =)
