    So I took part in a group model shoot in November. There not the best pictures in the world and the lighting is meh but I thought I'd share and see what responses I get.

    All lit with a 580 + a shoot though.

    6 and 7 for sure mate. the others either seem a bit flat, or the models are a bit lost against their backgrounds. however, technically speaking, much better than what i'd produce. well done :thumbup:

    Thanks,

    Yeah the background / shooting area was crap but that wasn't my choice.

    They look really vibrant!?! Maybe slightly too vibrant for my liking. The eyes in #7 look really weird.. :Paranoid:

    I like #4.. :thumbup:

    holy yellow skin batman! I think you took the 'vintage film' look at little too far, in my opinion it only works on low-saturation shots, and then they are usually arty backlit shots that cannot stand on their photographic merits or content alone.

    Composition is good, models and expressions look good. I would ease up a little on the processing though, just my opinion. I noticed the whites of the eyes a little bit too. I tend to just clean up some of the red veins in the eyes if they're obvious.

    If your subject is properly lit, anything beyond a single pass with a dodge tool at 7-10% exposure is going to look 'off'

    Fair call.

    Thanks for the feedback, I thought it was a bit over the top but wanted other peoples opinions.

    Will defiantly ease up on the processing of the eyes next time time.
