Thread: My Studio Shoot, from Tuesday C&C welcomed

  1. #1

    Thumbs up My Studio Shoot, from Tuesday C&C welcomed

    Just keeping the Studio section alive..

    Here is a recent shoot with Jess, a new model!



    And another..




    And one more..




    As always, please feel free to give some C&C for these, I shot these with my XTi using my Sigma 20-40mm at about 20 and 35mm at ISO 200 1/125 and about F10 ( Take close note of the DOF, I actualy needed to open this up further.) I am not quite sure why, the only thing that changed was the colors of the background lighting.. LOL

    My Key light is a an 1800 Whitelighting Strobe, at F 5., and I have 2 flanking strobes pointing and flooding the backdrop with diffrent (But similar) gels of Reds, and Blues - Per each of the images..

    The first thing I notice is that the makeup looks really good... not fake or off color due to it... thats a BIG plus... I agree that you need just a slight bit more DOF although it doesnt really take away from the shots whatsoever IMO...

    Chris,

    Nice model and nice shots. In #1 & #3 there are fingers cut off. I think it's more of an issue in #3, where her arm is also chopped a little. Also, the pose in #3 looks slightly awkward. It shows mostly in her hands.
    Having said all of that, lighting, color, contrast, are all superb. And so is the model .

    Yep Ian, I would agree, the music was going, and she was just throwing poses, and the fingers/arms were lossed in the process.. I have a few more to postwork where she is in full frame.

    The other fact this woman is 5' 10" that works out to be a pain in the but.. LONG legs ya gotta compensate for that.

    But thanks guys, I am still working out the DOF issues. I was not getting this much fall off the last time. Gotta look into that some more tonight.. ( another shoot)

    Chris... your work just gets better and better. If I compared these to some of the ones you posted a year ago, its night and day. You are really getting to be fantastic at this stuff. Great job.

    I think they look great Chris... one thing I noticed in the first shot, there is some slight shadowing on the right side of her face, it's kind of distracting to me... the colors just rock in all 3 shots, I love the bold color scheme of her cloths contrasted to the backgrounds you chose - very nice
