281.Late call...

A friend's daughter messaged me last night, asking if I could take a 'professional headshot' for a media company that she will be working for. I did say I was absolutely not professional!!! Needed it today. This is not something I have really done, children and babies being more my thing (along with landscape), so I said I would give it a go if they were ok with my best effort. She chose 6 and was really happy with what I managed, so all good!
she's very pretty and you did great, although that stark white spot on her neck pulls my eyes to it every time. but i'm jealous that you got a model! aces, jackie!

@summerfield - thanks for the cc, I appreciate fresh eyes absolutely. I will tone that down a bit in LR before I give to her, thanks!

wow, pretty girl and shot. Agree re the lighting on the neck, though as a client, I'd still be well pleased with it

@jesperani - I wish I didn't 'see' things sometimes don't you! I take a lot of baby photos, and ones that I think are rubbish the parents often love! I really liked some of the ones that Hannah here didn't - she was looking for her own personal (imaginary) flaws, whereas I look for photography errors!

@jackie8 I definitely find the same. We are too technical and self critical for different reasons than the subjects, for sure!

jackie, you are a great portraitist. if you can shoot them babies with great results, you sure can shoot big people just as great.

Good shot

I think you did really well. Will this encourage you to do more of this sort of thing? One of my photographer friends uses PurplePort to link up with new models to get mutual practice.

Well I bet she was delighted with this, I know I would be! You did her proud Jackie, a very pretty girl! It's a responsibility but you cracked it!
