Nice, I love pinup style.

Hard sunlight is tough to shoot in. If your subject is willing, have them step into the shade. The shadows will be much less hard and harsh, and your subject will be more likely to open their eyes and not squint - in #3, if she had been standing in the shade, you could have gotten a nice wide-eyed expression.

If no shade is available, make your own. I carry a Lastolite Tri-Grip which does multiple duties - reflector (of many colors); shade; flash diffuser. In cases like yours, it's big enough to create just enough shade for a headshot if you hold it just up and out of the frame.

On the last one, I'm not sure if the focus is off, or if it's motion blur. At 1/10, it's probably motion blur - if you're ever forced into using a slow shutter speed like that, put it in burst mode and at least one of them should be somewhat crisp. You also could have opened the aperture a stop or two - rather have a too-shallow DOF than motion blur.

Also on the last one, the background is a bit distracting - I think it would have worked a lot better if you had had her step away from the background a couple feet, maybe opened the aperture a stop or two to get some DOF separation between subject and background, and gotten above her a bit (either stand on something, or raise the camera above your head) - that would have moved the top edge of the background curtain up and out of the frame... and maybe gotten a little bit of cleavage, which is never a bad thing :)


One more thing - ISO1600 in the first three was quite unnecessary. Use ISO100 if you're in sunlight, and you would have had much more flexibility in getting the correct aperture and shutter speed. In #2, it looks like you hit the upper limit on your shutter speed - 1/4000 and you're still blowing out highlights on the skin on her cheeks, nose, and shoulder.

Great thanks a bunch. The out side shots were and old fashion strip show, so I had to take what I could get.I've only been shooting for a few months and this was really the most I ever shot. Once again thank you for your CC

I agree with this post, for me none of these would have been keepers. there are always guys that will tell you "great shot" or "nice work" but look around at more experienced photographers images and you will see that the images posted are unacceptable.

That said it is good that you are looking for ways to improve your images, use the above given advice and you will have many more keepers.

watch the exposure and try using a flash and the last is shot too slow and is out of focus
