Some more images from Fridays shoot with Alesha.
Thanks for looking
Very nice. Prefer versions 1 and 3, not so keen on the lighting in 2, but all very good.
What an extraordinarily pretty girl. And what a great shot, too.
1 is by far my favourite shot. Has a very romantic look to it. Would also work with a little soft focus, I think.
The lighting in 2 is a bit harsh for me.
Not so keen on the pose in 3, don't know why.
4's nice, but the background compete's with Alesha for attention. Could do with some blur.
5's a cute pose, but I don't like the clothes.
All very well shot. Looks like you both had a good day.
Another fabulous set of shots which are all very pleasing to view (not least because of your model but also due to the varying nature in which you have taken them).
Coming on in leaps and bounds mate... well done!
Thanks Jules and Davy,
I have replaced V2 with the harsher lit areas under exposed by half a stop.
This was Aleshas first shoot so i quite lucky to be the first to work with her unfortunately her friend talked her into bringing along these totaly unflattering outfits.
We had a fun shoot but both agreed in future that she would be better off with some more flattering outfits for her portfolio.
Thank you both for your feedback
I'm much prefering location to studio work the studio stuff is quite dull with the solid background..... just a pity the Scottish weather doesn't always allow for such nice days as we've had over the last week or i'd never set foot in the studio again!!
A brilliant set of images.
excellent set of shots,
Like the vibrant colours and model in these they have a nice feel to them - However do feel that the lighting is a light harsh in some of them. Would recommend using a diffuser next time to shade some of that strong light. Good work.
What a real sweety she is, shame about the clothes though.
I struggle knowing what to do with clothing so I usually try to get them out of their clothes as soon as possible.
On a serious note have you tried using the smallest f stop you can to reduce the depth of field that way you concentrate of the face an get a superb blurred background. Remember to focus on the eye otherwise it will end up an out of focus mess.
The other thing to consider is getting a large lastolite difuser to reduce the harshness of the sun, get Debbie to stand on a box or climb a tree to hold it above the model between the sun and model
If only thwy were all willing to climb out of thier clothes for me to phtograph them i'd be a very happy man lol
Yeah i played about with the depth of field i was experimenting with f1.8 and f11.
I will look into these Lasolite difusers cheers john
Beautiful model. 1, 3, and 4 are my choices.
Nice work and a very nice model. V1 for me
Prefer 1 and 5 mate
The backdrops on the others look a bit busy especially with what she's wearing, but still a good set
If i was honest mate i' say i prefer 1 & 5 as well, i almost didn't post any of these as i hate her outfits i all but V1.
Very Pretty Girl, her eyes are speaking to the camera and capturing the image. The composition and setting are conflicting rather than complementing the photo.
I'd encourage you to work with this pretty model again...
A very nice set of a lovely looking girl
