Yes that is my girlfriend, and unfortunately I didn't take that shot. A very, very skilled photog from here did.
I've never just paid a model, it's always been TFCD [time for cd, prints, w/e, no money involved. Just for portfolios. [as you guessed]
I did pay for that big shoot, $80 went to organizer who was the MUA[make up artist]
She then payed the models I think, and the locations owner. [ a private house]
I did that shoot to start my portfolio, so I could start finding and shooting models. I had barely any equipment, was borrowing a flash, and had a good lens. 50mm 1.4
NOW, about gray shirt shot. That was impromptu at my runway shoot, I had him pose in a window seal, all natural lighting coming through white window behind him. Came out great. NO PP at all, just crop.
I really am a complete noob.
Thanks for replying, I appreicate it
I have to say, for a "noob" you've certainly got some nice shots there
I'm thinking of getting myself a 50mm f1.4 at some point, as they're relatively cheap compared to most other lenses and seem to be one of the best types for portraiture. How often do you use lower than f2.8 for DOF? What's the most common aperture/s you use for portraiture?
Thanks again for the info.
