Thanks for the help Bill! You are right about the contrast. Your contrasting made it better and he looks more rugged. But because I still wanted his eyes to pop a little, I didn’t contrast it as much.

I think the change in contrast made it less look an Abercrombie ad and he doesn’t look some much like a pretty boy.

As for the red head, she is actually that pale. Here is another picture of her in a different outfit with 2 other models with darker skin, but this was taken by another photographer – https://scontent-a-pao.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/1012729_10202433654348044_785377001_n.jpg

However, I did lower the exposure so she has a bit more color:#3 – http://31.media.tumblr.com/54a295d973806a4701a5f8f6f8d410a0/tumblr_mw2zmq3V6n1sjzaluo3_r1_1280.jpg

For #1, I should have gone wider. I was shooting with my 50mm, but I was on a crop sensor camera, so it wasn’t as wide. She was at least 5’10” and shooting her with my 50mm was pretty difficult. The 2 times I took pictures of her, I had my 50mm and wished that I went wider. I always found myself having to scoot way far to get her whole body.
