first portraits with my 5D :)
« on: August 08, 2012, 12:07:43 AM »
my wrist was hurting really bad during this shoot, i'm going to invest in a grip. also, it was humid/hot that day and could barely see through the viewfinder because of my sweat :/

critiques welcomed!

Maybe invest in a sweatband?

I like the shot where she's holding the flower to her mouth the most.  The flower provides a color accent and she is framed on 3 sides by the foliage and the fence.  Good job!

That bokeh looks exactly like a 50/1.4 wide open on a full frame with that slight ringing.  EXIF confirms it.

Like the 1st the most. The 2nd is good too but maybe a diff. angle would have made her head less large compared to the 1st.
On the 3rd the background is just not working for me..  What I'm not fan on these is the white foggy stuff... is that PS or the humidity?

I like the 1st and the 3rd! Well done!
I agree with picturesbyme about the angle on the 2nd shot, so I would crop it to a head and shoulders portrait (but never discard it; that's a great expression on her face).
Keep it up!

I like the first one, but should try to add some space in the direction where the subject is looking (= don't center your subject).

The bokeh at the top of the frames is kind of unpleasant looking, and even a bit distracting - i might have used a graduated filter in Lightroom to smooth that out, reduce the clarity and sharpness a bit.

Other than that, i like the color grading and subject, nice shots!

Id like to see the un processed versions. 1/3 are fav. 2nd would be good but its too misty especially at the bottom half. Wonderful expressions. Flower one nails it.
