On Friday I did my VERY FIRST studio shoot.
Go on, tell me what you really really think.
I would actually like to learn from this as its something I really enjoyed doing and would like to do more.
Sorry Ive not been around much, most of you will know the reason why.

Tell you what, Lee, if these were my boys, I'd be more than happy to hang this on the wall.
Really like the use of the frame as a prop, the fact they are both wearing similar, but different, outfits and the poses.
I'd be very happy with this one - wish I could vote
Looks quite good to me
I think you did a great job. just do your own thing and enjoy doing it.
This looks very professional, I agreem with fran_ash, the frame makes a great prop. Well done. Tracey
Nicely done for a first attempt missus. I'd be tempted to adjust the light grey flooring to white though and maybe go for a slightly higher key look. A slight CC rotation too to straighten things up a little possibly.
Pose looks good though!!!
good studio shot, and the frame gives the image more interest and also links the two subjects via the frame, the image looks a little slanted to the rhs unless is the way theyre standing, and a little bit more exposure in the young man standing up, apart form that, a good shot, G
Thanks guys, more to come from this shoot but this was the first (of 250 )
Paul, the floor was all white but Eifion just told me that I had not set my lights correctly and what I could have done to get that more higher key look.
Hopefully the ones I post in days to come will be an improvement as Eifion did end up helping me with the lights and camera settings.
The poses are all mine though and thats what gained me the most fun
I quite like the subtle grey tinge - helps the boys (shirts) to stand out from the background - but it might be interesting to try adjusting. Love the use of the frame. Well done...
Mod posted for you m'dear ... you don't have to touch the shirts or the overall levels of the shot either and it'll take you 5 minutes to sort using the dodge tool set to highlight and a very low stregth
the pose is good, I like the use of the frame. An anticlockwise rotation by just a tad wil help and a slight chop of the bottom. They look like they are a bit close to the back lights as there is some bleaching but for a first shot in a studio it 's a cracker. Well done you
EDIT: the composition that Paul has done is exactly what I meant, but not the white floor - it's too much and they look like they are floating in air, leave the floor as it is
WOW, I really really need to learn this photoshop lark It makes such a difference.
I dont notice these things until they are pointed out and shown to me. Really appreciate it.
I love mods
Im having some photoshop training soon so hopefully......
But as I said, I really enjoyed the day and loved composing the poses, maybe I should just be Eifion's artistic director lol He has got some too so we will have a play off
You done well kidda, really great first effort sweetie, the lighting comes with practise so just keep on going
OK you want to know its RUBBISH.
Not really, its brilliant Love the poses and I like the frame idea.
The only thing about it is the lighting on the background and floor needs to be a bit more even, IMHO.
Nice one Lee, Great first studio job, Agree with Sut68's suggestions, Just to tweak it up a tad, But Hey! a first studio job....Guess the nerves where a little rattled...... Studio work is harder than one realises......
IT's awesome work you .....so well done
Cracker, lighting is spot on for me, nothing burnt out and good poses
this picture is absolutely delightful.
Hmmmm, not half bad. Rather good, in fact. Me not being a studio person, I can't comment on the techy stuff but the pose is natural-looking and the proverbial 'white-cat-in-a-snowstorm' exposure is well handled. Nice!
I found myself having to "Think" while doing this type of work, a lot harder than the landscapes and building images I normally take.
Hopefully if I go with Eifion often enough to the studio I will get better, I really love designing the compositions though.
Im just really happy that Ive got an opportunity to do all this sort of stuff now that Im a free agent
Have a nice day guys and dolls, me Ive got a ton of quotes to do, brochures and leaflets to design, and magazines to send stuff to so Im a busy little administrator today not "Artistic Director"
Not read much in the way of comments, not bad but a little too much forground floor. I would lighten just a little but not bleach the floor and background out, a little depth helps.
Thanks for the Mod Paul. I especially love the crop at the bottom.
Very good Lee. Agree re. the needed crop but my compliments here - excellent stuff.
Be careful you don't loose the shadows on the ground too.
