Default Jess - my first ever model shoot

My first ever shoot with anyone beside my wife!.

This was a group shoot, 5 of us, organisedby a local professional as a workshop in 'Urban' shooting - or how to deal with bright sunlight - gave us practice in using reflectors, fill flash and shade. I know I should probably Photoshop out the stray hair an a few of the blemishes

Please be kind

They're all nice, but I really like the last one. The only issue is that it needs a little retouching to smooth out the skin and remove a few blemishes. If you don't mind, I'd be happy to show you how I'd retouch it.

Nice set. The first one seems a tad soft and with a slight color cast on the red side; love the bokeh on that one. The second one is my favorite except I would have preferred to have her hair not covering her left eye. The third one is my least favorite, just don't like the angle. I like the fourth one too..and it does not seem to have the color cast that the first one does. Do you see the difference there? The fourth one also has the advantage of not having any undergarment straps showing, which are kind of a detraction in the others. I also agree about the skin smoothing/retouching.....Hope you get a chance to shoot some more with a variety of subjects.....

I really like the last one.

Personally I would only retouch the pimple as it would be a shame to "fix" such great skin with fake skin.

#1, I'm not so hot with all of the hair in the face. I really like the rest, especially #4 (except I would prefer more contrast and less blue color cast).
