Default asking for Idea's

the camera .... Kodak Dx 6490, I think in this I only had a UV filter on

the place ore coast at sea level, semi overcast day with a touch of wind

shot was one of those hey you's, as she turns I shoot..
soon we will be spending a full day photographing her , The back drop will be two places, one will be full green forest ,, next will be river bed rock so a lot of glossy blues and a grayish rock..

her skin color is this pic is correct,, my concern is the skin color against the back colors being a dark green and the bright blues,,

The cam was on auto ISO .. all I have for filter is a poler, star and the uv.

we did a crop and resize on his photo and her color comes out a little lighter .. we did not change any shades of the colors.

do you want critiques on the picture you posted, or was that just an example of her skin tone so you could get help with the potential backdrops?

When you take pictures of her do you have to have a sensor in your camera?

In the old days guys photographed models like this but they didnt have to have any film in their cameras.

Make sure the day you shoot is clear and not foggy I know you guys down there in Ore can get loads of nasty grey this time of the year been there in it many times... I would take her up to the falls that would be a great place to snap her and then over to the Astoria points near the bridge! or maybe to Washagal on the route to the Wineries the grape fields would seem right! I seen her around before!

Key elements will be ensure you have a manual white balance set otherwise those greens and blues will mess everything up and she will have different colour skin in each shot. I personally like the look of the flash white balance setting, even if I'm not using flash. You can set what works, for you, but just don't use auto.

Make sure you have enough light as you really don't want to be using the built in flash.

Unless you have loads of light don't use a filter, if you do have enough the the polarizer could be good to have, especially when there is water involved.

If under trees, ensure that you don't have any light specs, either be in full shade (probably the best) or clear light.
