I like this 1st shot but I am thinking the window is starting to bother me a little? As for the other shots I need to clean up around the eyes some but whenever I do, I end up making her look too doll like. I need to sign up for a photoshop class and get myself more familiar with it cause at the moment I am only editing in lightroom.
EDITS ADDED UNDER EACH PIC
Sidenote: I saw this girl at a wrestling tournament. She was so beautiful so I walked up to her and asked if I could use her as a senior model for my site. She said yes and she would have her dad call me. I wonderered why her mom would not be the one who would call till I met her. I guess her mom had left when she was younger and her dad was raising her by himself. He was so nice asking every question a good dad would. I told her there would be no charge since I would be using her on my site. After I saw how photogenic she was I talked with her and her dad about modeling. Since I know Jasmin's agent very well she tells me if I notice anyone to send them her way.
When I shoot my senior girls I bring a rack of clothes along with makeup. We used minimum makeup but as I had her put on some lipgloss my heart just hurt for her that she learned to do makeup, her hair and everything else without her mom. We sorted thru clothes like friends mixing up outfits and trying this and that. We had music on and even started cracking up together when all of the boys at the skatepark were checking her out. She thanked me over and over and said she had so much fun. I am going to submit her to modeling so she can get papered all the time by makeup artists and hair stylist. This girl deserves a little pampering. Cross ur fingers she gets in!
1. ADDED BRIGHTNESS AND TOOK OUT WINDOW. BETTER?
2. EDITED /BRIGHTENED
I really liked the look of this backround but the only bad thing was the window was up high so she had to sit in the ledge. I think I am going to try again but bring a stool for the subject to stand on so they are not right against the building.
3. EDITED TO TAKE OUT SOME YELLOW AND THE RED BUT I STILL SEE YELLOW? MIGHT JUST TAKE THIS ONE OUT NOT LOVING IT.
ADDED 2 MORE
What way would you go with this? Don't think the edit is working in this one and I know I still need to fix the hair:) would u kep this one with a different edit or toss it?
For some reason most of my full shots were oof:( Still have to figure out why. I know it's not the lens cause I was using 2 different lenses. Then I was thinking it was me missing focus but it only happens when i'm zoomed out. example, this shot below is blurry and not sharp at all. So frustrating.
SOOC 1/500 ap4.0 iso250 70mm (I used an ap from 4.0 to f/8 but still got the blur)
HERE IS THE SAME PIC AS ABOVE WITH A CLOSE CROP SO U CAN SEE WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT
We could not bring the chair out cause it was so muddy but we did have a blast taking pics she is such a beautiful girl!
