Guitarist C&C
« on: October 18, 2012, 03:10:18 PM »
I normally shoot studio/sports, but the other day decided to experiment with shooting into the sun.

Any C&C is greatly appreciated. I've always liked these kinds of shots and want to add it to my repertoire.  :D

Great shots! As for number 4, My personal preference is to make the model look as flattering as possible, so I would personally make her stretch her arms and legs further out,and have her (right) leg bent more, rather than the (left). Other than that, I love them! Thanks for sharing! ;D

They're technically correct but they don't tell me much about the guitarist.

She favors the first position "G" shaped chord.

The 1st shot is a bit rough on the color balance, between the fill flash & the striking sun.  The sun in the frame might be a bit too much.

But the others are great :-).

My favourite is the third one.

Because the guitar is so large and she is quite small, the other positions to me feel not quite right and slightly awkward. This is my personal view and depends what you are aiming for.

When you have the guitarist as the main focus by using the angle that you did in the third it seems more natural. The line of the guitar also leads into the image, whereas in the others it is so dominant.

Don't stop doing these type of photos though, you have found some really nice light and, even better, you use it well.
