Nice shots.... looks like you were fighting with multiple colors of light shining on each girl... Very nice results!

Thanks. I would characterize the lighting condition as haywire. With around 30 photographers (plus 30 P&S flashes) shooting in a downtown mall in Toronto.
What else would be more enjoyable than shooting a constant parade of girls with full make up - all free. Indoor and in the middle of wintry weather. Tough condition with low keeper rate is a norm

The lighting on the models are excellent...nice skin tones..especially on #3 and #4. The compositions are very good too.

You have shot at ISO 200, but I see noise in the background...you might run it through some PP to remove it. I also see what looks like some lens flare on #2, 3, & 5..were you shooting into spot lights?

I should have shot all raw. But I have not even shot anything raw at all. Too lazy to learn. What caused the biggest problem was those rotating spot lights and its white balance was all over the place. I tried to avoid it as much as I could already.
But the cost is little and sometimes I may hit some gem. Very much like going out to shoot birds with a lot of non-keepers. And sometimes I may come back empty handed

Beautiful shots Daniel. I especially like the shallow depth of field, creating the nice out-of-focus backgrounds.

For some reason these are not showing up right now - perhaps a server problem where they are hosted? But knowing your talents, I'm sure they are great photos...

Default Birds and birds

I can see how you keep developing the two sides of your photography, Daniel. Birds and... birds

Thanks for bringing me along!
