Nice pose, nice girl, ugly shadows and over exposed ankles compaired to the rest of the legs.

I am no lighting expert and not being mean in any way, just trying to be helpfull.

Maybe have the lights near the camera either side so they are almost head on to the model rather than at 45 degres and farther apart.
Maybe even just one light camera left near to camera. That should give you even exposure on the legs and remove shadows on her waist coming from the flash on the right.

Like I said I am no lighting expert but that may help with this shot. Just my thoughts.

Much appreciated Steve - you're quite right and i should have moved the lights or the barn doors for this shot.

Stuart, This is a pretty good shot of a super looking model.....Grin

As someone has already mentioned the lighting, I'm not goung to add anything to that.....Grin

However, One thing you might want to keep an eye on is the little details.....Smile

What I'm getting at is the models left leg, Where it is resting on the chair back....Sad This has messed with the lines of the leg somewhat, Its a pet thing of mine to try and prevent such things in a composition, Not always easy I know, As there are many many things to think of, But just before you fire the shutter, Take one last glance over your subject, This is more important when shooting a model ( Or other subjects ) where everything is foccused on the subject in question, ie: Nothing else to distract the eye, If you see what I mean.....Smile

Like I say, Its a pet thing of mine, Looking for the detail that can be anything, Like a thread hanging from clothing, Ruffled hem lines, Anything that looks out of place or odd.....!!!

One last thing, The pose itself, It just don't look comfortable, It looks as though her right hand is holding her from falling, The whole thing is just not relaxed, Which might explain her expression.....Sad Generally if a pose is comfy, The model looks more relaxed & confident, Without being told to......Wink

So does it get a vote, Yes it does, Why, Because you are trying, You listen to/read and take on board any advise given, Plus thats one very nice model.....Smile

Again, very much appreciated feedback - and again i agree with comfort pose aspiration - this was the best expression of the set with her in the chair.

The main trap I fall into is trying to produce LOTS of picture for the TF models - where as i should be concentrating more on a slower pace to get individually better pictures before I speed up the pace again having locked in good techniques.
I'm falling a bit into the machine gun trap of hoping one will hit the target, rather ensuring it really does.
With more experienced models i get i higher hit rate as they know how to pose even when I forget to compose and direct the shot.
Hi Stuart,

"Less is more", springs to mindSmile, but that is easier said than done.

Nice work Stuart - some great observations made, which are things I still overlook until review time lol, but you will look more closely next time.
Great model and a good pose.
