We thought we'd try a few poses using a larger prop. Does this detract from the subject? We don't have access to a studio, so we try to be creative.

Ok,
First of all I love the setting, very gangster/40's style, LOVE it.

First try to experiment with the angle, in the first few shots the angle from above doesn't work, you get all kind of distortions and the picture balance is not quite served.
Try getting on your knees and converge the verticals so there is no distortion, you will also notice that the model will come out more cleanly and impressive.

Also look out for shadows, what you could do is point your flash to the ceiling this will for 90% elimate the harsch shadows behind her on the first few shots. If you cannot point your flash try connecting some toilet paper to it, this will act like a difusser and make it more soft.
You could also try to move your model away from the background, but I guess that's almost imposible here .

Again love the setting and heads alway's strike a nerve here (love them), so see the critique really as suportive.

Greetings,
Frank

Thanks Frank. I have a Dimage 7i camera with a fixed flash, and I like the idea of diffusing the flash. I always check these posts to generate fresh ideas, and checked out your last post very carefully for more clues on how to make light and shadow work better for me.

I like the theme and model, but the lighting needs a little work. Not that I could do any better. :shock:

If you take Frank's advise, you will be shooting pro pics in no time.

Well done.

I don't think you could change the item I found slightly annoying. Which was the doorway and chairs growing out of her back. :-) You'd either have to re-arrange the room or hang a backdrop over the wall, neither probably very feasible.
