p.1 #1 · First Portrait Session, would love feedback


After lots of reading, I did some photos for a good friend. She is a christian singer and these are for promotional purposes. All shot with a 70D & 50mm 1.4 with (1) flash used mostly off-camera. My biggest struggle was posing her properly. Would love some critiques, good bad or ugly

I think 3 is your strongest of this set...

she does look uncomfortable in most of the set, but with a little refining I'm sure you've got some keepers in here.

One last thing... take the next to last shot, and toss it right in the trash. lighting like that is NEVER flattering, and should never be used for anything other than creating unflattering pictures of John McCain.

I started at the bottom of the comments, and I haven't seen a single shot yet, but I'm going to guess it's aportrait lit from below. If it's not, never do that either - but if it is, then that should be reaffirmation as to this comments' validity.

lol, thanks guys. I did not mean to upload that one. We were goofing off at the end and thought it would be perfect lighting for scary Halloween costume photos.

The lighting is flat on all of them. It works better on #3, because she's not in shadow. I'd suggest getting a reflector to bring some highlights/shadows back onto the subjects face.

Do I see Red eye in #1 and #2? That off camera flash sure looks way to centered in the eye.

Agree. That was my first impression. Put some shadow on her face to give a 3D effect.
