Skin retouching

Hi everyone,
I'm working with a model that has very discoloration skin due to operations and medical issues, there are scars and the multitude of various colours there and then there is the extreme weight lost and the issues that causes.
What I would like to do is a slight but not heavy skin retouching on her body.

New To Group

I am new to this site and group. I'm a experienced photographer. Just started studio work about a year ago. I like shooting art nude at this point. Here is one from a recent shoot. CC welcomed.

"RAW" black and white portrait

Over the last couple of months i have been shooting a series where women are shot in their "raw" state. Little to no makeup, no editing (other than a B&W conversion) and all with wet hair (don't ask, i just liked the look)

The resultant images were put into a printed hardcover book.

This is one of my favourite images from the...


Hey Everyone,

My name is Zak and I would love some feedback on a couple photos. Most of my photography background has been events / concerts and documentary type work and its really left me with a weakness when it comes to directing and posing people. I have decided to really dig in on that area to grow as photographer. Last night I did...

High Key Session, CC welcome

After many years of admiring the work from Joel Grimes and his style of lighting especially high key, I decided it was time for a personal project to give this a go. Earlier this year I organised a shoot with a model friend in her apartment, using a white wall and two softbox (see setup diagram) we started to experiment. This was the first time...

Journey Man

I have seen this man walking most days around town for the past few years. I always drove past him & thought geez that old bloke clocks up the kms. One day I was out walking my dog, and who did we pass? So we got chatting after he asked me about my dog. His name is David & it turns out he is a photographer and a morse-code enthusiast....

Hello! Bridge to Canada

I was in Michigan this past spring for a family trip. I managed to sneak away for a little bit and grab this photo. It started snowing right before I got to the park and I had not planned for snow(It was already in the 80's back home) so I was running around in the snow and bitter wind without a jacket and just a short sleeve shirt. It was...

Feedback please

Hi, would love some opinions on my latest. It was taken in natural light, on the street. I loved the door so I used my daughter who was with me to stand against it. I like the primary colours - blue, red and yellow. I wanted a really dramatic portrait , cinematic , because of the dappled light. This is not a typical portrait so am curious to...

Opinions please

So I have a great interest in portrait photography and I thought I'd share some of my pictures with you all. I've only really started out so if they aren't that great I'm sorry. I'd love to hear your thoughts & opinions though!

No Vacancy

We discovered this establishment right when the sun was low. The beds were still pulled tight and made, but not a soul in sight. Unoccupied for years. I captured my friend having a look around, the place was quite creepy.

Awkward Introduction

Hey all, Nick here. *wave*

This is my first Fstoppers post. I have been traveling a lot recently so I decided this is a good group to start with. I'm a very slow producer of photos but it's undying passion. Would love to hear your thoughts.

I also have a slowly updated Instagram ( Stop by and say...

The Asin Road

We passed by this awesome view on our way to Bencab museum in Baguio City, Philippines. This reminds me of Favela, the hillside houses in Brazil. We couldn't pass the chance to shoot this properly. So in the afternoon me and my bro went back to capture the sunset view.

Lake Tekapo

Hi guys

I would like to hear what you think about this scenic landscape photo from Lake Tekapo, New Zealand.
The photo is a couple of years old, I found it the other day and took it through LR and PS to tune it a bit.

I hope you like it!
