This is an 18 year friend of ours who wants to get into modelling, any tips would be appreciated.
I apologise for the quality of the scan
very natural looking - f - have a look here http://www.modelscouts.com/
Beautiful girl, great figure, gorgeous face and hair. No tips or tricks, just the comment that she certainly has the look to succeed IMHO. So, clicked. More!
I shot 5 rolls of film with her so will get some others on here when i get them scanned
i think a white background would work better here and lose the shadows behind her but thats just me.
Tip from ME.. Don`t say you`re sorry for a good picture.. This is
loverly shot good tones and lighting
Soften your flash a bit and get more distance from the background. That will sort out your sharp shadows (and help with metering) but that is all regarding this shot.
I suspect that a lot of the solid black/lack of detail is down to the scan
Thanks for all comments, I know what to work on next time
Nice shot, very natural looking
VEry nice colors and light. Excellent job
Excellent picture. Click
Nice relaxed portrait, good pose.For me this might have worked better with a plain backdrop, but good otherwise.
Lovely image, great colours, great expreesion, nice one all round
Good pose Mo, lovely girl and a nice relaxed image..if I was to offer any advice I'd suggest, on pain of instant criticism from everyone else, it strikes me the image is a _trifle_ too hard and contrasty, that's only my opinion though, for what it's worth LOL
Thank you for all the comments and advice
Lovely shot - although the arm may have been better off placed infront where you can see the hand instead of being tucked away.
I may have had the feet crossing at the ankles as well as it does look a little like one big foot or an hard to hold pose,
the shadow is a little distracting as well.
Still - all that said its a very nice image
and one I would be proud of...
I tried out my ideas above in my K shot and apart from the problems with the backdrop and other stuff - I was quite pleased.
I like the arrangement with the hair and the way the dress holds the girls figure on you're shot!
In reply to your comments on my K picture about a flash meter - could you please describe how it works?
Does it produce a flash to trigger the heads and then take a reading.Or doeas it work the heads via a cable or do you have to leave the meter in position and then trigger the heads yourself?
You can tell I'm a relative beginner!
well I have a gossen one, basically it comes with a sync lead which triggers the flash heads, alternatively you can leave it in place or get the model to hold it, and it will measure the first flash within 45 secs of setting it.
you put the speed of the film into it and the shutterspeed you want to use, in which case it will give you the aperture size for perfect exposure, or you can put the aperture size in i.e f8 and it will give you the shutterspeed required.
the beauty is that you can adjust the lights to make sure that you have the same level of light/flash all over, or underexpose certain areas as required
IMHO this is a good shot of an attractive young woman. Thanks for your comments on my photos, I really appreciate them.
