Critique please.

Critique please. by JackAllTog

ok ... so here is mine.

the pose is just strange. I particularly don't like those chest bones sticking out - for me, that alone, ruins the entire pose which otherwise would've been lovely. The critique here: maybe some lack of direction when shooting.

Still on the pose, if i compare it to Rachel's one, the pose there is far more dynamic.

Another thing ... and I'm no expert myself - to the contrary as I'm trying to learn too - however, I think this is way too flat! there is no drama, no depth to it. Depth is normally added by some nice shadows. I think the shadows here are *not* nice - they are too hard. In fact, as I've just checked, Rachel's photograph is indeed nice in regards to the shadows - notice how soft they are!

At last, I think you are over complicating this with three flashes - as I'm reading (and again, I haven't actually attempted this), if I am to imagine myself doing this, I'll certainly use two flashes only. If I was to use a third one, I'd use it somehow at the back of the model for hair highlights. Then since the image it's quite flat, I'm assuming you are using same settings on both side flashes - which I wouldn't do. I would've most likely play around with key/feel idea ...

I think that's it Smile

Can't wait for the weekend see if i attempt few things myself with me new flashes and yongnuo triggers Smile

Flight of the SCRUFFY bumble bee.

Flight of the SCRUFFY bumble bee. by JackAllTog

this could be better but I have to say ... Don't know if you use Lightroom ... but have you tried opening the shadows a bit? I think this is actually fairly sharp but the shadows seem too dark!

Having tried a bee close-up before, it took me about 4-5 hours just to get a reasonably good one, which was worse than yours anyway Smile)

Keep at it mate!

Hesitation

Hesitation by JackAllTog

I think this is an amazing shot!

What I like the most is the contrast - and Im not referring to the colour contrast, rather tools vs rock. I like that. Then the shadows are great ... just make the tools even more so mighty and powerful against the rock where no shadow can be seen. And to make it complete, they are going uphill ... as if they are seeking revenge!

This is the day when the rock will fall!

hahah - amazing!
