    Ok here is the 3rd shoot I did. I shot all of these using a beauty dish i had just gotten as the main light. I felt like i didnt raise it high enough.

    1 st shot , her leg it covered by the edge of a bench , this hurts the photo

    2nds shot lighting lighting and location harsh shadows and less than inspires seating
    dont push this enough , you are on the right track , look at really sucessful magazine work to emulate , in so far as that is possible , it aint cheap or easy , this i know

    3rd shot pretty good but perhaps crop a little , wasted space behind , if for the shadow than do for that thru a crop too also consider dodging ther black dress in the hightlight range for more presence of the dress

    4 uneven lighting tweak and vary try a bit of bounce to lighten thes light sucking areas

    7 the best for me , could be improved a bit thru burn and dodge , but your enthusiasm
    and hard work is is something that is commendable and shows how serious to improve your skill set you are , keep it up , i see improvements here and there wholly due to your commitment to improve .


    you have a knack for finding attractive models , could you offer advice in return on how you do that so well?, cheers

    The 3rd is really good in concept and execution.... the shadow of her is wonderful and the contrasting branches and shadows lend to the eye travel......
    I think Kelly is your best model so far..... you seem to have a rapport with her...

    I actually like the second shot the most. I also like the last shot.

    I am going to agree with SS here, I think this model seems the most engadging.
