I haven't really done portraits before just some shots with my friends, so I thought i'd give it a try. I really want to get into doing more of them this summer, it was lots of fun. Let me know what you think, thanks.

It appears that you have good lighting, dof, focus, and framing -- looks very good to me! Your PP looks excellent

If this is some of your first portrait work I'd say you are off to a great start.
I really like #3 & 6.

The contrast is a bit high for me in some of the shots (losing detail in the blacks), but overall I like the look of your PP.

Did you shoot all of these with just natural light? There are some amazing natty light shooters out there, but for more control with the light on the model I'd suggest using off camera lighting. It will improve the lighting on her face especially with the eyes and area around them.

I look forward to seeing more portrait work from you on here.

I noticed some of the photos have more contrast on here then they do when I open them in my lightroom.

All the shots were done using natural light, I havent really used flashes much and I wanted her to think I was professional at this haha. Also it was kind of chilly out and she was a sport for just coming out to do that so I wasnt going to make her sit while I figured out my flashes lol.

When it warms up I want to start using flashes in day light.

Iv done 2 other shoots before, one was with my friend Jess just snapping photos in a park and then another time we actually set up some flashes and the other was with my friend Rad and his girlfriend. So the whole portraits is very new to me. This was the first time I did photos with someone Ive never met before tho.

excellent shots! Only comment I have is, are you really short? Or do you just like shooting from a low angle?

haha no but I just noticed now that you brought it up all the shots for some reason I show from a low angle. I guess I am still in the automotive photography mode where every shot I'm usually laying on the ground. Ill have to keep that in mind thanks

they're great shots, I just typically prefer eye level or higher.

Very nice. Some fill light would help around the eyes and there's some loss of detail in the blacks, but otherwise very well done!!

I agree, this set is very nice. Stephanie is very pretty, but I do not see much variety at all in her expressions. No smile at all in any of the pics, really. Nice expressions, nonetheless, but a variety is needed from her in these. Shoot location looks very good, nice bokeh, good work.

Beautiful work. Given you did not use any flash, makes them even better.

I have bookmarked this pagebw!

The environment in the first picture can distract my eye from the model Especially the big tree at the middle. The others are really nice. My favorite is the #4.


Have a nice lights!
