I know most of these photos are a little rough and the colors are strange but that was kinda the fun of it because the shoot was a spur of the moment "let's go out and take some facebook photos" shoot.

Let me know what you think and if you like them.

5D mark II | 24-70mm f/2.8 | 85mm 1.4 | ISO800-3200 | No fill flash

#3 is the pic of the bunch for me, a great shot!
I love #4 too, it has real character & (maybe just me) humour too.

Great shots! I really like the composition of the 6th, but perhaps you could've gotten down lower. Number 4 is also great, that guy withe the drum is epic! :)

thanks for the responses and i totally agree some of them I don't like entirely but I think the 85mm gives a very dreamy look and i like that

I don't think the poses give her figure any credit. I understand it's a loose shirt but the way she's hunched over in some of the pics is unflattering.

I'm not a fan of the post processing, the combination of the post and her wardrobe makes it a tad depressing, somewhat cancer patienty.

great job nailing the exposures and superb composition.

the only thing i can knock is your pp, not her poses.

@palakaboy, I really agree with the whole cancer and depression thing.

I really like the one with the big musician. it's really something different!

and yeah, i can agree with the one, where she is lying on the stone wall. it beautiful!

alright after looking at the photos again I totally see where you are coming from with the whole "cancer" thing

however, using vivid, dark colors and draining vibrance is style i prefer to use on many of my shoots to give them a darker and morbid feel to them. Ironically when you say they look like a cancer shoot it actually is a good thing in this case

now in my other shoot, probably would not be the look I was going for with the blond girl but in this case i'll take it

even if it gave off the whole "cancer" thing, at least it communicated something

Also do you think the headband was a little too much in this situation?
