I did my first portrait shoot yesterday with my friend Tessa, it's completely new to me because I normally just shoot motocross. I tried different angles, and poses, these are the ones I liked most.

First time or not, these are very nice. The only thing is that it would've been nice to see her face a little more clearly in the first picture.

If you could see more of her face in the first one. That would have been amazing! But it still looks great!

A reflector or fill flash would've been a great asset to have here.

Nonetheless, I really really like #3. Her eyes just pop. Very pretty girl.

Yeah If these had some fill, or reflector use for the subject, they would be top notch. Do it again.

You are off to a good start!

Next time, take the same great model and composition and try to add some off-camera light (flash, or reflector) and then POST THE RESULTS.

Thanks guys, I did better than expected. I wanted to turn a new leaf in photography I was little clueless with this whole portrait thing haha. As far as off camera flash, I'm looking to invest in a set of cybersyncs or something after I buy a new truck! Thanks for the comments and keep them coming!

One more!

If you don't mind my asking, how did you get the lens flare effect? i have read it before from somewhere else but was curious if there was something different you applied to.

That third one is awesome bTW

From what I've noticed, the flare comes from shooting in the direction of the sun, but a little off at an angle if you get what I'm saying? Like try shooting either early morning, or late evening so the sun isn't so harsh, then shoot toward the sun, or even include the sun in the shot a little bit and the flare should show. Kind of hard for me to explain. The sun just has to have direct contact with the lens glass.

Great first attempt. Just like others have said a little fill would make a pop or two
