    Absolutely beautiful work Henry! Well done!
     
  4. Looks like they work great! Lovely shots.
     
  5. 1st one... looks a little too dark for me also the shadows on her clothing sticks out a little too much, and the pose looks weird - not really bad, but just weird.

    2nd one... wb looks a little odd, there are some hot spots on her face and skin you could go over, cropping seems off - I'd rather see more room at the top than bottom. Also, her shoes look like you cut them out of a background...

    3rd one... pretty good, again just a little too dark for me, and maybe I'd try to clean up her face just a little more, but it's good the way it is.
     
  6. Henry, you are well on your way with your new studio lights. Very nice.
     
  7. I like the last one but it is under exposed. A simple levels adjustment will take from a nice photo to a beautiful photo.

    You're off to a good start.

    What's up Henry!? Long time no see! I think they look good, esp the 3rd posted pic! That one's dynomite! My only nitpick is that there doesn't appear to be any "floor" in shot #2. It's almost as if she's floating.

    Thanks guys! Appreciate each and every feedback you gave.

    Hi Steve! Yeah, I should keep to my regular stuff and not go with white b/g.

  10. Good looking first attempts!! In #3, I would clone out some of that glitter on the model's face...
     
  11. Very nice Henry.

  13. Beautiful Henry... the glitter distracts me a bit... but not that much since the model is very pretty. Where did you place the alienbees in this setup?

    Thanks and you're right of course

    I shouldn't have let the girls play with their glitter. Maybe this one will make up for it?

    Edit: Medium SB to left of camera, medium SB next to camera right, hair light on boom and one light on b/g

    I think the lighting, tones and texture of the first shot are just great. I like the last one also, but it looks to me like you took too much texture out of her skin.
