Hello, though I've been a member of the site for a few years always intending to get started, I shot my first model this past November. Before that I'd done mostly landscapes. I've really caught the bug and have done quite a few shoots in the past six months. I know I need to get out of the studio and do some location shots, or at least vary the background settings, but I was wondering if there are mistakes I'm making in my choice of poses, lighting, is my style "all over the place", do I need to take a course in photoshop (I only do some minimal editing in most photos) anything would help and my feelings won't be hurt because I have no ambition beyond keeping this as a hobby.
In fact, I'm pretty happy right now as one of my goals was attained this past weekend as a nice model here in London, where I'm living at the moment, contacted me through another site yesterday asking if I'd do a TF shoot with her based on my most recent shots. So please take me back down a peg or two, but not three, I do have some ego! ;-) Thanks, John
P.S. sure, she may have messaged a hundred other photographers, but I'm blissfully unaware of that!
