Part two of Latest Model Shoot D2X

Discussion in 'People' started by vincebeus, Aug 6, 2005.

  1. Like promised here is a few more photo's of the last photoshoot on the beach with my D2X and a nice model. Any comments, advice, critique or remarks are welcome with explanation so i can improve myself. Thanks in advance for your time.


  2. Nice series.

    The first shot looks overprocessed. Her skin has that unnatural plastic look.

    The others have great lighting and nice skin tones.

    Number 4 is my favorite and as Mitch said the first one looks unnatural. Would it be possible to see the shot before it was pp'd.

    Thanks, and she is a very lovely model.

    After looking at them again just now. The last one is rather sexy too.

  4. The first photo was bit OOF as you can see from the hair so i made it look plastic. And sharpened the eyes and added some grain. But yes you are totally right about the barbie or plastic look.

    Thanks both for the nice comments. The only curve i understand is my own learning curve but it can't be uploaded to nikon capture!

    I like the silouettes , # 7 would be better without the biki strings ,# 6 could benefit from a little cropping from the bottom .
    Just my .02

    I love them all. the first one is a work of art. Beautiful. Your post processing and ability is fantastic.

    Have you ever seen Chip Springers stuff on the retouching forum on DPR.. If not look for his paint with and and his illustrator tutorials and images.

    He is an ace.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Keep up the good work.
  8. The last one is poster material. Nice images but of course #1 is a little far out.

    Ya! I can see why you'd forget to focus! Especially close up and all.
  10. The last one is the best of the bunch of a great series of photos, she woudl be a pleasure to shoot.
  11. The model was very happy with the shots. And she wants a new shoot out soon if the weather is fine again.
  12. I think i have seen his work before in the Retouching forum, but i will look for it again i love to learn more.

    Thanks for your kind reply and information

  13. Oh you got me!! As you could see i got nervous so close to a woman. That i forgot to focus. :oops:  :wink:
  14. Thanks for all your replies. Means alot to me

  15. I love #4 and #5. The first I think was a little over processed (yes I know its been said :) ) And the sitting one I think would be better perhaps if you tilted her back and arched her back. With her stomach (although not being fat etc) rolled with her crunched forward like that, it isn't very complimentary :)  Also make the models look good :) 
  16. #1 - Plastic. Might want to lighten up on the processing, looks very unnatural.

    #2 - Clean background but the pose and her expression don't do much for me.

    #3 - Maybe tuck her knees up or something to hide her tummy next time. Regardless of how in shape she is, folds are unavoidable due to certain poses.

    #4 - Great shot. Feels like she's really letting loose. Have her do more of that :D 

    #5 - The side lighting is too harsh. Like the background though.

    #6 - Very nice. Try punching the colors a tad. Good pose.

    #7 - Another great shot. Excellent way to portray her form.

    Got some good stuff working for you. Keep it up.
  17. Thanks for your reply,

    I hope to get some nice weather to get her out on the beach again. And get to work with some new different shots.

    I hope to learn more about framing and things like that.

  18. The silouettes are definitely my favorite in the series. Beautiful model and beautiful images!
