I think if you keep practising, you'll eventually get there. Stick at it.

In all the close-ups the irises look a little soft...how do you see them when zoomed in to 100-200%.

This is a 100% crop, another factor could be the retention of a shallow depth of field at even f11.

That should work...apply some sharpening to the iris itself. ;)

I'm by no means a headshot expert, but they look good to me. Just the last one is suffering ever so slightly from "raccoon eyes" shadows.

I like the last two pictures because our eyes are drawn to the brighter parts of the shot. And those bright areas tend to make the dark subject look even darker. Take a look at POST #30 near the bottom: The gray bar at the center is the same density all the way across.

OTOH, I'd use a less dramatic background like in the first ones for children.

They look pretty good to me except #4. You can see the roll of paper on the floor in the back.

These are all very good. I'm surprised at some of the comments.

Q

This comment from me was with my tongue firmly in my cheek. Almost rude, someone of my level making a joke at his shots. But that's not how it was intended. All the photos I see from Zerimar are great. I just hope I didn't lead the thread in a particular direction that stopped others from positive comments.
