I would like to echo Dougs sentiments to start with.
this isn't to my liking but I am not your target audience or market.
I have asked my wife and Daughter their thoughts on these shots ( the other thread also, "Your short leg shot"
as well as the "we like to watch shot")
they really liked them and its the girls you are trying to satisfy, is it not?
the artificial lighting shadows in the "we like to watch shot" throw 2 differing angles of shadow, not counting the planned sun squelch from above. ( bottom left source and centre top)
I am very much the beginner so its only my dumb 2 cents worth but I would rather heavily diffused light from the front and something out of frame on the left to give the appearance of the shadow caused by that squelch of sunlight.
and with the stage smoked short legged shot that my girls liked so much my only gripe is the 2 stupid lights on the back wall one of witch glares out the man that is paying half your invoice.
that's my 2 cents worth if your interested anyhow , You asked!
I hope to see you contribute on a non business level also so we might get to know whom Chris is.
( this might be the most honest forum you ever come across if we get to know you first! )
( I'm still new so above is only my opinion! )
I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can't see from the center.
