View Full Version : I need HARSH Critique
01-15-2011, 01:41 AM
Just hoping for some honest Critique on my cosplay photos...
Im thinking of only doing studio shoots from here out because I feel my outdoor shoots are never clear/bright/close enough.
I'll gladly return the favorite if I receive any comments on my photos. Thanks!

I see no photos
Usually the people asking for critique here are photographers, not models. Would you like us to give advice on your poses and expressions?
I'd say that studio shoots will produce more closeups that outdoor shoots. When I shoot on location I want to include the location in the photo, so I pull back to show off the background as well as the model.

I thought they were great.

Are you the photographer or the model?
We'll be happy to help, but please link to a few photos in particular you would like critiqued. Very few people are going to digging through an entire gallery.

There are only 44 images to look at. It's not over-bearing.
I think your location shots are generally more interesting. The location surroundings often give you pose options, and make your composition more interesting. Most of the studio shots are not lit in a very professional manner. The background is usually bland. If you use backgrounds in a studio shoot, they will look better if you care about how they look. Use colorful gels on them. Try using a fog machine, pumping smoke behind them, and lighting the smoke from below or from the side or top.
Your location shots seem clear enough to continue to consider using them.
I prefer shots that have the cosplayer not looking at the camera. Most of your portraits have eyes at the camera, limiting your poses.

pick a picture for us to critique instead of making us go through your gallery - as a photographer you should be confident and know what your best shots are to put up for critique. hope that was "harsh" enough. ;)

I dunno. This one particular thread kind of ticks me off. You didn't give me any photo's to look at, I have to go through your gallery to see them and I feel like you're just fishing for compliments because you're pretty and you know it but you want others to keep tell you.

Personally I think your location shots are much more interesting than the studio shots. The locations you chose made the overall composition very interesting to look at. The backdrops for the studio shots were a bit too bland and boring and it distracted me from the cosplay. If you want to do more studio shots maybe consider using more interesting backdrops that contrast more with the cosplay. Also have more variety with the poses and facial expressions. What you did a really good job on for the studio and location shots is contrast and the cosplayer really stands out. Great job!
