Ok browsing the forum tonight, why is this post still at the top of the list?
Is this some sort of weird voodoo magic?
Not really, Brian. It's a vBulletin bot (or subroutine program) wherein any posts that has no replies yet are being placed above the rest so members can comment on that and not left behind. Actually I was trying to post a comment but my issue was that I can't seem to directly pinpoint the things that I want to comment on.
I was thinking if it is better if your daughter somehow looks to her mother to make a stronger connection. The loose hairs covering a part of your wife's face is also an issue I see but I'm not so sure if it would make a big difference. I think, the biggest issue for me is the light background. If it is darker than the skin then I think it would help to make the shot stronger. Unfortunately I was too busy experimenting on my softbox to make an edit.
I agree with all of your points. This wasn't a pose, I caught my favorite ladies having a moment while setting up my stuff. I agree on the background, but this was at the client's request I did manage to get them to shoot it at sunset while it was at least shaded. I didn't quite have my flash figured out yet either
Maybe I could have done better with a DYI diffuser
I do like the darker background - good work.
Did you just dodge the background some?
Also thanks for explaining the vbulletin thingy.
Thanks.I do like the darker background - good work.
In some ways, yes.Did you just dodge the background some?
I think Sean was the one who explained it here at CiC. I merely re-stated it.Also thanks for explaining the vbulletin thingy.
