A few from a quick session one lovely, fall evening. It went pretty well in my opinion, for me Rarely ever doing portraiture! I forgot how much fun the learning process is when it comes to photography :) Any/all CC welcome.

^^ Nice shots but I think they would be better with strobe. Having some artificial light always gives that pop. For first one, I typically shoot sitting down on the road so subject looks taller and I see less of the road part.

Thanks! Cool, I think I crouched for this one. Next time I'll give sitting a shot too..

I just realized I should have kept my eye on that dang necklace. It's really bugging me in these shots.. just the way it's hanging is.. asymmetrical. Maybe I can re-work it a bit in photoshop.

I appreciate the comments about #3 but it's the most pleasing image of the 3 to my eye. Much more strobe and it would start appearing unnatural.... I bet she loves her pictures. Good job

Nice ones. What I would change is shoot same location but little earlier before the sun has set on the back ground. Or wait more after sky is better. And shoot lower so you don't see dark trees, bldgs in the back ground. It is the subject and clean sky as back ground. Use strobes and go for dramatic sky.

these are all stobed images.. and you well cant get a sunset and have the trees exposed... but i see what you are saying to me its a nice canvas to have the senior on. heres another from the same set

Strobing against a sunset is so effective itsnhard to believe its so easy. I like the darker background more in this shot than the two above. I think what maybe you misinterpreted in h0the critique is that a lower camera angle drops the horizon line so the subject is against more sky and less ground.
