    Hi John,
    I'm new here to! Do you have a link to a gallery that has your exif information. I'm trying to learn how to take better portraits and I'd love to see how you did these! Wonderful work!

    Welcome to the Cafe Jdex!

    Nice series you have got here. #1 immediately got my attention as the graffitti on the wall is an ideal place for available light photography if there is appropriate light.

    Thanks for sharing and keep posting. :wink:

    Superb shots John!
     
  9. These are really nice Jdex.

    I personally find the skin softening in #2 a little on the heavy side and a little unnatural. I love the composition though.

    I'm with Banhup - #1 is my favourite of the series. Your colour and clarity look great in this image.

    John,

    Welcome to ze cafe'. Nice work. I really like your light set up. Portable flash on a stand? Umbrella? Love the BW shot, too. Pretty lady - does she smile?

    Welcome to the Cafe - these are some very nice images!
     
  12. Very nice work. Cute model as well. Welcome to the cafe. What car forum did you come over from? I just came over form one too xD.
     
  13. Lovely young lady and very good images, but can she smile a little. She's too young to look so sad or is she mad.

    Gasp! Someone who really understands composition and lighting is always welcomed here. Really nice shots. Some of the best I've seen posted here.

    Care to give us a rundown on your equipment and settings?

    These are great. You've got a nice variety of poses, and I like the way you've made use of the environment in your compositions to make the images interesting. You've also made good use of lighting and color. Not a lot of variety in expressions here, but the "attitude" seems to fit the overall vibe of the images (I can't believe I just used the word "vibe" in a photo critique).

    The only one that doesn't work for me is #2 - the skin looks over-processed, and the whites of the eye don't look right (bluish color cast).

    Nice work overall.
     
  16. Welcome to the Cafe! You've got some very nice work!! Thanks for sharing and I look forward to seeing more!
