Not digging it. The shadows on the left side of her face are bad. It really shows her wrinkles and blemishes.
Unless these people are into theatrics then yes...it's too dramatic.
Soften it up a bit.
I like the second shot, but thtere is something about it I just am unsure of. I have been staring at it for a while now and I think that no matter how well you do this shot, that you have a difficult female to photograph. One eyebrow is higher than the other, and she does not open her eyes when she smiles and if that is open, then she has some squinted eyes. Her right eye has some heavy shadows in the outer side of it (or maybe it is heavy makeup) and her eyeliner is to thick. She has elf ears and her nose is lumpy. You have alot of PS work ahead of you possibly. The male shot looks fine. Which is odd cause I always think that guys are a bitch to shoot compared to females. Good luck with this and I hope I did not just offend a family member like your mother or somthing
you need a really soft fill on camera L.
Even a piece of white foamcore or something to reflect just a *little* light into the shadows on her face.
The dark shadow on her eye, and the contrasty shadows on her face make her look a lot less attractive than it should.
You can actually see how her face is reflecting light onto the shadow side of the guys face, causing those shadows to lighten up and be MUCH softer.
or you could just fake the light...
faking light ftw
shadows are too harsh and the crop too tight. they look like masks
Yikes. Clean up her face, it's a disaster.
Surprisingly, she's more worried about her hsuband's unplucked unibrow than she is her face. She's pregnant, that was her excuse. I'm going to clean up a lot of it tonight for them before I send it to them.
PS that unibrow outta there. I do it all the time.
and she doesn't need an excuse. Her face isn't that bad. it's the hard light creating crazy exaggerated contrast thats doing it.
it's a horrible photograph, end of story.
sorry... you've done much better.
I'll probably turn down the clarity and contrast to see what it does before I start chopping it all up.
At least you're honest. Thanks.
Yeah I don't really know what you're going for here. It definitely doesn't have a family portrait look. If you were going for the Blair Witch Project look, then you succeeded.
be sure and get that nose hair...............
i've gotta say, i've seen you shoot better, but nothing a little pp won't fix or make better.
the mascara still creeps me out for some reason
here's the rest... thats the only 'oddball' one in the bunch.
theres the work we know and love
