taken Saturday, had fun w/ this one i would love to hear any comments or suggestions.

particuarly, the one where she's in the dallas cowboys jerzee, my wideangle screwed up the door "frame"...i know there's something in photoshop, and i've used it quite often, but i've gone blank. (1:00am central, go figure) if anyone can refresh me on how to straighen those lines, that would be GREAT

thanks so much, comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

thanks so much bud, all of these shots, i ran through noise ninja plugin for photoshop cs2, and did slight levels adjustments and some spot healing sparingly on the face. this is one of my best friends that loves the camera, and it loves her too, she's so photogenic. thanks for the redo, i'll mess around w/ it as well.

i agree, shot 4 looks like a diffusion filter was used, but i just messed around w/ manual until i got the soft tones, believe it was f2.8 / shutter 1/50th

Hi,
I love 2 4 and 5.
You can experiment a little bit more with the angle in which you shoot, often going down a little bit, shooting from the waist of the model up will give you a very nice perspective.

Love the look of the shots, maybe add a little light from the side or back if possible.

Keep on shooting,


Greetings,
Frank

I think that 3 and 4bring out the beauty of the model very well. While I can appreciate that you were reaching for an effect in the first one, the only effect it has on me is to make the model seem deformed. The idea was not unreasonable, but the shot just doesn't work. As for the others, they are appropriate but don't seem up to the high standard of 3 and 4 to my eye.
