Chris, as usual, these are amazing. Can I ask, are these all natural light? In particular the indoor shots?

Great set Chris. Your work is fantastic. What's the Post Process work done on the last photo? My faded PP never looks natural enough.

Excellent series! I clicked on the link and the first thing I thought of was this has to be Chris Sorensen's work.... from the very first shot. OUTSTANDING! Really like #1,3,4,6 in the series. Keep up the great work.

Thank you Eric.

Thanks Gene. Yeah, all natural light.

Weiyang, the PP was done in Lightroom. I upped the recovery to 25 to flatten highlights, reduced contrast - both in the tone curve and contrast slider, pushed the blacks up to 10, desaturated the image 20%, did a split tone to add some red to the shadows, changed the WB to warm up the image, and then played around with the HSL sliders to get the look and color I wanted. Hope that helps. Thanks.

Charles, she just signed with the agency and this was her first shoot so there was a lot of directing. But she was relaxed and comfortable in her own skin which made things so much easier. I shot a couple others this week that I'll be posting soon who were not as comfortable in their own bodies and it definitely makes things more difficult. Thank you.

Thanks Braeden, greatly appreciate it. And I'll say the same about you. And #8 was inspired by you with your wide angle shots and fun compositions. I wanted to get out of my tele comfort zone so I switched to the 35mm and played some (though there was no sun so no flare )

Thank you Hatch.

Thanks Sam.

Thank you Robert.

Thanks XcepTion.

Thank you Tigerlord. All natural light.

Thanks Tim.

Thanks for the detailed instructions on how you created that look.
To answer your question, I do think #9 looks better than #8. The angle is more flattering for her face. She also looks more playful (just a tiny bit more). The straighter arm in #8 feels a little more like she's dragging someone hard where as the slight bend in #9 feels a little more natural (Or maybe I'm just trying too hard to reason out why I like #9 over #8).

She looks good and has potential. I would look at this set for future hire. There is one shot I would like to see here, though. I think with her bones and eyes, she could also pull of corporate. Severe suit, boardroom, conference table reflected shots. She can be cute, but works better in the more conservative shots. I look at 3-5 and see a real potential. She seems a little too classy for casual. N. 1 does work with white on white but her look is still conservative. I don't think she is jeans style. N. 2 indicates she could do traditional asian dress very well. Very classic angles and lines to her face. And she has the asian movie star look as well.

BTW, you captured her well for either appraising for a given campaign, or promoting for the future except for the ultra conservative shots. I would shoot additional conservatives and corporate to round out the package.

I prefer the comp in the new one. I feel like since her body is facing camera right, she's too close to the right edge of the frame in number8.
