This is my first upload in a while. Not been able to shoot for some time now, but a good friend of mine from work agreed to model for me this weekend. We decided to go to Hatfield Forest to catch the best of the lovely light and she fancied doing some shots outdoors. This also gave me a chance to try and bit more off camera flash work. Got some, what I think, really nice shots of her from this shoot. I will be posting a few up here. Would love your feedback on all of these shots coming up as I KNOW I have made some big mistakes on them, but wonder what you feel. Some of the skin tones were difficult to balance with the flash and the sun as I didn't have any gels to correct the colour temp, my photoshop skills aren't good enough to compensate! But my friend has done some modelling before (she has that "look"...wouldn't think she was a scientist like myself would you?!). She was nearly signed up to a top modelling agency when she first moved over to this country 3 years ago (she is Polish) but decided against it as didn't like the life and idea. So, for me, my job was quite easy....she did all the good stuff herself! Makes life easy working with someone who knows what to do, not that my previous models haven't been brillian.....
I like this one as a starting image as its simple, nicely exposed and shows her off well I feel. But, as usual, comments and constructive criticism always welcome! Hope you like
