Well, I took the bull by the proverbial horns the other day, and signed up with a model agency.

No, no, no, not for me to model, but for me to find a model, and try something new.

My first shoot was with the very lovely Leigh. She was fully aware of my inexperience, and was patient, and encouraging.

So, here you go, the first of several uploads, I really do not mind genuine honest feedback, so feel free to comment, or PM me if you have any suggestions for me to help me improve.

Hope you like....

Anthony

I like the angle Anthony, but the model looks a little too rigid and uncomfortable. Top marks for having a go!

thanks Adam. This was about the 4th of 5th shot of the day, so it was all still a bit daunting, lol

Appreciate the time to leave a comment though.

Like the angles and pose Anthony good styling too. For me a little bit too candid like as she is not engaging with the camers. Also watch the hands especislly the one one the knee spread fingers tend to draw attention.
Regards Richard.

Hi Anthony, to me the image does not just make it I'm afraid. Don't get me wrong, I'm no specialist in portrait photography. A good model has the right clothing for model shoots/fashion shoots. The dress the young lady was wearing was too busy. Maybe her fingers should be intertwined holding her knee or both hands on the steps. Her bra strap was showing, which is again not right, unless it's there for a type of shot, which I'm sure this was not. Little details are so important in this type of photography. Post production for fashion shoots is intense and the work done by these people is mind blowing just watching them. I put the image into Photoshop and removed the bra strap. Her cheast area was pale compared to other parts of her and did not look right, so I created a new layer, took a colour sample with the eye-dropper tool and painted over the area, using blending mode > colour. I then used the quick selection tool and went over her dress. Added a new layer > blending mode > select > inverse and used black with the paint bucked to take the colour from the dress. I feel now, this is in more keeping with the background. A good landscape or fashion photographer does research on the best shoot locations for a particular job and this is gained by time and experience and try looking at the top pro's and the type of locations they go to. We all never stop leaning, that's the great thing about the World we live in. Hope you like the mod.

thank you Stephen, some great info in there, appreciate the time it took to leave all that, and to do the mod. I believe I have much better images to come, but at the same time I deliberately wanted to start with my earlier images and work up to the better ones.

I quite liked the dress as it was, I liked how it jumped out at you against the plain background, and yes, the bra strap, got me there.... lol

Cheers anyway, always happy to take advice.

Anthony

If you missed it in the shoot, I would clone out the bra strap....john
