A few shots from an earlier photo shoot. We plan on taking some more in studio later this month.

Cracking stuff. Some really lovely portraits here. Nice posing and compositions.

Colour cast seems inconsistent across the images. White balance?

In 2 I'd like to see her eyes and eye sockets a bit lighter.

Nice set indeed.

Nice poses of a very lovely young lady.
Processing seems all over the map here though, with #1 probably being the most flattering to the subject. #2 is cyan, #3 is magenta, #4 again cyan, and #5 blue/cyan. The harsh light combined with the cast causes her face to almost look dirty in #5.
The sharp/centered catchlights caused by the direct-on flash are not my favorite.
The skin-smoothing is too much for me. I think the DOF is unnecessarily shallow on a couple of these, too, and that may also be contributing to the blurry effect of the face.
Cut-off foot in #4 although the other boot does help distract from it a bit.
All of these could be helped I think with some different post-processing but I think different on-site lighting would help, too. Maybe better use of a reflector or off-camera light with large modifier. When you have a model like this with baby blues like hers, you really need to get some light in there and capture that beauty.
You've got some very good equipment and a pretty good sense for a pose and for framing. I suggest working on the lighting and post-processing.

Thanks for the feedback. I am colorblind, so I do struggle with avoiding color cast. Guess I need to use my gray card more often!

Blimey. That must e a struggle for you.

Can you have something check images in a set to ensure they are consistent?

From a colour perspective all of these images are acceptable individually but as a set they are all over the place. The first is, as stated, the most natural and flattering for the subject. The second I would say is the most unnatural looking.

Some nice work, as already mentioned some color issues and for me some slight over processing in a couple. is my favourite.

Thanks for all the feedback, I really do appreciate it! I'll pay particular attention to white balance issues going forward.
