not diggin the WB at all and the 2nd girls face looks soft? (it might just be this laptop )
Gabby looks good!
and these two girls are....?
Yeah I softened both faces with a little airbrushing.
#1 seems a bit too warm.. needs some slight sharpening too maybe..
#2 seems way OOF to me.
Yeah I quite possibly softened their faces a bit too much not sure...
#2 does seem a bit OOF upon further inspection
This is my first time every really doing portraits...I do more landscape/cars stuff
unsoften the eyelashes and they will look a lot better
ya i think it's the eyes that are in need of the most sharpening.
Ok so it's usually better to what do a 2px feather crop of eyes and then airbrush the rest?
i usually just make a new layer, soften/airbrush, and then remove what i did around the eyes...but yea same effect just different method. what is your airbrush method anyway?
edit: do it with the eyes and mouth
My airbrush method is probably quite different then most Maybe I'll share my ways one day... It's a mixture of filters with different layers and masking certain areas.
It seems to me that there should be more value separation between the model's hair and the background. Hair and background are so visually close that the eye doesn't want to separate the two.
more light, sharper features
second girl looks a bit cross eyed
girls are pretty, good capture
the background is kind of distracting too
I think it's a little dark for my taste.
I'd adjust the levels a little.
#2 is soft and both are underexposed.
Looks like they were both standing right in front of the tree... move them out a foot or 2 if you can to get some separation from your BG
Yeah sounds good that's what I'll do plus I'll back up zoom in lower the f/stop and get some nice blur/separation. I've been practicing my portraits because I'm shooting my friends wedding, in addition to the pro, for fun and experience.
does the pro know?
Yeah he's a friend so it's all good. I'll stay out of the way My friend is an art major and she asked me to do it. There is a first time for everything right?
