Critique for Sarah
Sarah was a photographer at one of our RPS Art Nude and Portrait workshops and has submitted these images for review and critique like all our attendees can.
Lovely capture of Jon, terrific pose with fingers really strengthens the shot. Lighting is spot on showing all the character in his face without going all shadowy and moody. Lovely twinkle in the eye.
Again the lighting has worked perfectly o this shot.
I'm not sure about the crop whether it should have been a little tighter or a little wider.
The head is very high in the frame.
Lovely delicate portrait, absolutely perfect.
Strong three quarters shot.
The twist on the shoulders to camera is a bit too strong, it makes Artemis look very broad shouldered.
The face on the other hand is turned just slightly too far off camera.
Lovely. Just absolutely lovely.
Love the strength and contrast on this shot. Even though there is no light on the lower torso it has a terrific separation from the background and so works really well. It is just a fraction too bright on the head and bust, but that would be easily fixed.
Interesting switch from the previous shot, has a lovely sense of story and mystery to it. Again just slightly bright. Give it just a little more room above the head.
Marvellous. Look at the texture on the cloth as well as the shape and pose.
Again the highlights are too high but fixable.
Take our the thumb by the eye.
Oh dear the light is just far too low on this shot.
I like this, the thought and the seeing. I would have left it in colour 'cos they were a wonderful red.
Another terrific shot, lovely capture of tones in the outfit as well as on Leah.
Nice composition within the frame.
Light is too low and shining up into the face.
Cut across the hand at the bottom is too tight.
Terrific close portrait.
In this case the assorted moles and bits need cleaning out because they are distracting from what is other wise a great close up portrait.
The face is brilliant, a great strong assertive and sexy woman.
The hand on the shoulder is overposed for the rest of the pose.
The crop across the bottom of the image is just difficult all round.
Shame to finish on this picture which is the weakest of the set.
Overall, these are terrific images, very strong, very well seen, nicely captured - you've obviously been paying attention when posing and giving some careful direction as well choosing your camera angle and crop well.
I run regular workshops for beginners and experts alike. I like to run a mix of styles and types. Masterclasses, portfolio builds, technical and artistic sessions available.
Current courses available.
