This is a series of shots without flash from the same shoot. I kind of like the "natural"-ness of them and the progression of the series as she started to unwind and relax. These were taken towards the beginning of the shoot with all natural light. Crit and comments welcome

Nice set of fashion shots - I would have been tempted to smooth some of her skin tones on the legs and knees, but otherwise I love the posesand lighting, great portfolio.

Hi Johnny, Like these natural shots a lot, although difficult to pick favs 1, 3, 5, are possibly the pick. I like the low viewpoint you've chosen for 1-4, whilst 5-7 have a wistful care-free feeling one sometimes sees in adverts and catalogues!
Not very constructive I know, but a good set nonetheless.

Wow, just got back my computer first thing after logging on and seen all this lovely feedback! Thank you so much guys, its really, really appreciated! I wasn't sure about uploading these at first as the last one I loaded in natural light didn't get much feedback at all, but this is a really pleasant surprise! I am glad you like them, these were probably the most natural of all the shots we did that day.

Andy, I can see what you mean about skin tones and so on, but I prefer not to retouch skin unless I really have to. I am not a fan of the over processed look on skin and with a natural shot, not sure it would have worked that well. But can see what you are saying and I am glad you like the images. Thanks! Smile

V3 for me, just for the look!! Very natural looking shots that are simply great. Excellent cropping / comp. Good interaction between the pair of you. I hope you're proud of this series as they are excellent.

Thanks Dave, really appreciate that. Yeah, V3 seems popular because of that look! lol! And I do like this series of shots, I am very happy with them. Over the lot that I have posted on here, there have been mistakes, I know that, but on the whole, as a learning experience and then getting the feedback on them, its been excellent and I am very happy with them. So thanks again Dave, appreciated!

Some lovely shots here. I am still finding some of the angled shots distracting. I am not a fashion photographer but I think that I would be taking 'normal' as well as angled shots and choosing only the angled shots where the angle has added something to the picture. I really like the natural light which you have used in this series. A

Hi Arthur, I totally get what you are saying and I can see it would be an opinion splitter. But I guess for me, its all about 1) developing a style and 2) knowing the shots I have, putting the ones up I feel "do" more in the frame. I do have some shots which have completely horizontal horizons, but they are....well, to be frank, a bit boring really. I like the angle BECAUSE there are a lot of shots that are just "straight" I guess....and for what I wanted to do, I wanted to get a more "natural" shot, as though I was just snapping, which meant that a straight shot would have looked more set up. Hence a lot of shots with the angle. You're not the only one to say this about them, but I have also had a lot of people say they LIKE the angled shots, so I guess its each to their own really. But thanks Arthur, glad you like what I am doing and completely get your point. Cheers Smile

Thanks Paola! Appreciated! She was a model for a short while, but didn't like the business, so stopped, but she is very happy with them and was pleasantly surprised at the results! I think V1 and V7 are my favourites from this. Thanks again Paola, much appreciated again! Smile
