Default My third attempt at pictures, now using variable OCF

Cherry picked a few of the better ones... a few were processed with Machinery, all were healed and slight tune in CS6. Goal was to "get it right in the camera", most were shot with OCF which has variable "power" and flash though umbrella..

I think too much sat, but my lighting skills are improving. Also have a really nice flash now, compared to before..

Your lighting looks good.

A suggestion, when posing people ( example, the first image) don't have them "shoulder to shoulder" with you. Ask then to turn 45 degrees in the opposite direction and then look at you. IMHO that is a much better look for a portrait.

Shooting other folks takes a lot of patience. You obviously have the desire and now equipment to match so it will come to you. Keep practicing.

Thank you kindly for your tips and support!

Posing is another aspect I need work in so I hope with diligence to bring it all together in order to capture consistently, quality images.

I forgot to use my second flash to try and get rim light, I bet that would have looked great! Maybe Ill remember next time! HA HA!

Thanks again!

Andrew
