From my first time doing a figure photoshoot. Here I used Playarts Kai Quiet.

I'd just recently got my camera and was excited to put it to use.

Feedback welcome, both for figure photography and photography in general.

AveragePervhace 28 días#78764346There's nothing wrong with the picture, sometime ago MFC in the side part of the picture, usually give the Exif data of the image, and those numbers were very helpfull to understand the images in here
Try to use another source of light, and complement the ones you have, or diffuse the one you got, that way you wont have to push the shadows, the ISO noise in in the black background, i think you may try to recover exposure in the shadows and that ring the noise, as ISO400 isnt high at all
1/160 is good to freeze the image, f6.3 will give ebough deep of field, to avoid loose the focus, (im not Nikon user, i use Pentax and Fuji) try to use AF-L (to lock focus) and then recompose without moving on the Z angle of the camera, only Y or Z, or if its have good enough track focus, lock the focus on the face and recompose
(Of course you can use some focus point close to the face, maybe im more used to use center focus point)
If you hace a tripod, use LiveView, activate focus peaking, and will be very easy to achieve focus on what you desire
While im not an expert and theres a lot to me to grow in photography, and i recognize my photos arent the best out there, i normaly use f4, 1/200, ISO100 sometime ago i threw myself deep and use like 3-4 lights, the last ones are only using a softbox and 1 flash
Dont worry, youre pictures are good, with some practice you will achive the image you are looking
If i can help somehow, you can ask anything, and there a lot of feedback when you ask for in the forum from great figure photographers as well
Cheers


Thank you so much for the advice, especially with the multiple light sources.

Sadly my camera doesn't have face focus if I recall, but I'll double check (would make life easier haha). But since this picture I have learnt about F-lock, and also assigned it to a separate function button than the shutter button. So I don't accidentally mess with the focus Haha xD.

I do have a tripod, and have tried using it for figure and cosplay shoots. But if I'm being honest I find it so restrictive. I like to change my angle and position constantly, kind of work in the moment to find just~ the right angel I want. So I really only used the tripod when I was doing a long exposure in a crowd to give a motion effect. Though admittedly that definitely adds to the focus issue Haha XD.

Thanks ago for the advice, I really mean it. This is the first constructive criticism I've ever got on my pics beyond "she looks hot" and stuff. It's a great help and I really appreciate it, as I've wanted to improve my photography so much more than it currently is.

2Weebs1Dungeonhace 28 días#78764331Heya, I was using a Nikkon D3300.
Whilst I used manual, I was (and I guess still am) trying to get to grips with all the various settings. Ended up using a ISO of 400, F6.3, 1/160 shutter.
I think my lack of understanding of lightroom back then did more harm than good too lol.
I kind of threw myself in the deep end. Whilst I think I have come further than when I took this pic, I've still got a lot to learn. So any advice would still be helpful thanks.

The focus is on the front leg, and appears to be using a high amount of ISO, due to noise on the blacks (Automatic mode, maybe?)
