Anything at all that's good advice guys!

Fashion shoot for local mag, really liked the colour & feel of this shoot. Not sure if maybe lost detail around the edges though...

Thanks as always. Gill

I like the subject. Perhaps it could have been a little bit lighter just to bring out the detail a bit more which I did in levels. I have uploaded a mod to show you, If you think it's rubbish just ignore it.
I hope that this has been some help in some way.

A good shot Gill, - mono suits it. Pose is good, - its has "attitude"

Looks better if the composition has the model off centre and a little lower, - as in the mod.
Would also suggest you sharpen after you re size, - its a little soft, - it also make his eye sp[sparkle a little with those nice catch lights.

The face can be a tad brighter as in the mod.

To increase the size and re compose the shot, I added canvas in Photoshop and used a combo of cloning and painting in with black to cover obvious cloning, - you can do this better yourself, - or better still, compose in camera by standing back a little more and re composing.

The top lighting has made the face a touch dark with a loss of detail in the jacket. Just a little addition of brightness needed. I find the pose strangley off putting - that little lean , but then it has to be better than a simple straight shoulders regimented look.

Thanks all, good info and feedback for me.
The mod seems to have stretched poor Lewis's head however...maybe my computer though! Thanks though, like angle.

Still learning so lighting and flash are not my strong points...need to keep at it!

Thanks, Gill

Not your computer, - its a tad stretched bout needn't be if I had spent more time. So dont go out and buy a monitor or glasses. The mod is just meant to illustrate composition.

Thanks, Willi, didn't mean to sound cheeky. I appreciate all feedback! I like the composition, wish I knew more about PS.
