I was wondering if anyone could edit this for me. I'm not sure how or what techniques to use for senior pictures.

Well first you need to start with an in focus shot that is properly exposed, composed and well lit. That isn't what you have here and you can't just edit it to become that.

Here's my take: Simple B&W conversion. Increased the sharpness a tad bit and bumped up contrast.

Future advice. Keep in mind composition and exposure. He had a pretty bad hotspot on his right cheek from the sun and the composition isn't too flattering. Lots of dead space on the right and you're shooting him at an upward angle.

Just my 2 cents.

I agree. Fundamentals first. Get an off camera flash or a reflector would be a great start to separate your shots from everyday snapshots. I wouldn't rely on "effects" and "editing" to make your photos look "cool"
