My first portrait post in SA

Hello hello,

My maiden post in the portrait forum :p

C&C much appreciated.

ISO 320, MF @ 85mm, Shot at F1.4, some sharpening in Lightroom and a touch of saturation and contrast too (don't really see any difference, but I like to play around with those tweaks :p)

1)

Nice and sharp. But too warm and slightly under expose. You should have dialed it up a little more in Lightroom to bring out the color as well as cooling it down. You lost a lot of detail in her hair as well as her the color of the blue is way off. Good effort none the less and keep it up. Canon is notoriously warm and can lead to weird color. Hope you don't mind that I took the liberty of PP you photo in Lightroom. Here is the result

actually, ur picture is quite natural...if u want to take natural portraits...it's not bad. i would have just adjusted the contrast a little bit.

warm colors from canon actually emulates a closer output to what film would have produced (my opinion of course).

but if u're into digital imaging/studio type photography then u can try techniques such as the example shown. the only drawback is certain things like the blue cloth is suddenly unrealistically blue. anyway, if u want cooler pictures u can adjust it in the camera settings. adjust the wb shift a little towards blue.

check out this photographers site...the pictures take a little while to load...but really worth it...http://www.christinafallara.com/ she takes natural portraits of people.

Warm or cold all measured with kelvin's value.... if its warm, step down K's value lah.... if its cold, boost up then.... its only the matter of your personal choice of white balance and mood....

To get a constant value of warm/cold, dont use AWB... its terrible... use K value setting and let 5000K as ur baseline... less get more blue and more get more red....

The work of hanuman there is awesome... u can too... just play with curve, levels & saturation and close them up with a lil of unsharp mask...
