Please see assorted shots of my wife and I am looking for CC.

Note: the beach pics were taken with a point and shoot pocket camera that I accidentally left on low quality setting, and these have had no PP.

The pics with car were taken with my EOS kit and camera mounted flash,as were the pics of her in the white and black outfit

She is new to posing, I am new to photography, and thanks to this forum for helping me learn...

My favorite posing/composition is from your CoolPix. She looks comfortable, relaxed, and shes having fun.

And, for the one the beach setting, I prefer the one with less contrast.

The last one: her legs and the ground are brightly lit while her face is under exposed. It should be the other way round. It looks as if her shoes are the subject The leaning pose looks very awkward.

The beach shots are underexposed and contrast is too narrow. They're cropped too tightly on the top and could be cropped on the sides. Better still, instead of cropping the sides, move her to the left so that she is looking into the center of the image, not out the edge.

The car shot is a nice pose, but you didn't get her eyes in focus. This is a crucial point.

Why did you crouch down low to take the night shot? She's an attractive subject. This point of view does her no justice.

Thanks for all the comments, and I agree with each one. Part of my problem with the car shot is that I have yet to develop the good habit of focusing on the eyes. Will work on that. On the night shot, I loved her red shoes, and I guess I was concentrating on them, to the detriment of her face. Points well taken.

Just a suggestion for posing a model like your lovely wife.

Her hands are posed well - hands open with fingers close together.

In the last shot, the pose looks un-natural, as a general posing rule - bend the models joints, it looks more interesting and natural.

Keep shooting!

From what I am learning, maybe this pic from the same session is a bit better. Seems to have more even lighting, taken from a better angle (not so low) and she is in a more natural pose. At least the knees are not locked.

I think it's still to low of an angle. Before you compose your shot,think about what angles would improve the image overall.

Thanks for the comments. I see now that the angle is still a bit too low. I do want to get an off camera flash as soon as I can.
