Hi all, I shot my daughter Desiree this weekend using my studio lights and off camera flash. This was my second time using my studio lights in the year I've owned them, and first time using off camera flash. All C&C encouraged and welcome (Prefer Harsh). Thanks for viewing! :D

Honest nothing harsh to say other than she can smile more. Her mouth closed like that with her braces makes her mouth a different shape and kind of odd. I know she is self conscious about her braces but the best ones are of her smiling....

Really like the PP on some of the shots. Like the last one. Nice!

Those are pretty good. I think that the lighting on her face is a little flat and a bit more contrast would help them pop a lil. :0)

Yeah - I saw the first image before realizing there were more photos -or- that she had braces and thought that she looked a little mad.

About your daughter - I bet you are having fits keeping the boys away - she is beautiful! Tell her to relax and smile more - It makes her face light up!

About the photos, I like the lighting in 2, 4 & 5. The last one, the colors are funky or something...

Kids with braces want to pull the lips tight in order to hide them. Have her relax & let the lips gently come together for the non smiling shots. It will look much more natural...........tw

Thank you all so much for the honest critique and compliments on my daughter, I appreciate it so much! :D So it seems the consensus says that I need to be a little more aware of how the braces impact the look of her mouth and to have her smile more. Thanks everyone!

General comments. I would try short lighting pattern. Also don't shoot too tight like in #1 and #2. They wil look better with darker bg. I do like the last shot.

I don't like the white backgrounds, way too contrasty, just feels harsh. #5 is great though!
