Recently did my first high school senior photo shoot and wanted to share a couple of my favorites. Any comments are welcome, Thanks.

I'm actually a lil late to this party and sifting through some fantastic images on this thread. JMHO, but with a very pretty young lady, it's hard to not get the "good shot". Yes, there's always a "Pro" that will "point out the lil things" that are not "technically by the book". "The book" is only a reference point! The rest is a photog's individual "style". At the end of the day, if the client is happy, isn't that all that matters??
I agree #1 may have a somewhat odd angle, and the grass doesn't "match" her dress, but it's still a nice pic. #2, yeah, you could have sat her on either end of the couch for a "different" look, and you may have but just didn't post it. I personally like the "contrast" of a "tee shirt" on fine furniture, JMO. #3, other than the "locked out" elbow, it's friggin' awesome IMO. The exposure, for me, creates the mood, makes a statement, etc. All in all, great work, again, IMO.

Awesome set! 2 and 3 are badass IMO. Not a fan of the PS flames in #4. Great work.

Thanks for the comments but that isn't PS flames, it's real. I had that HVAC tape on the ball and lit rubber cement on fire.:lol:
Had to PS some of the smoke from the trees though.

^^ Nice shots. Two commenst:

1. Dress needs to match the surroundings
2. Loose the trees. Don't know why people still use them as props
