Seems like it's been awhile since we've seen this gorgeous young lady.

Yes, but now it's here :)

I've been taking photos for a little bit now just for fun but I think it'd be beneficial if I could make a little bit of money from taking photos. Any feedback is welcome.

A priceless line. You and....well, probably everyone else on this forum. ;-)a

Lighting in both of your pictures is flat. Picture one is underexposed and neither picture has any great interest. That is, there is really nothing to keep a viewer looking. Picture two she looks pretty apprehensive, like maybe you're a total stranger that has just popped in front of her and pointed a camera in her face. Add to that all of the people in the background are very distracting. Both have kind of snapshot qualities.

Best of luck to you.

So what would you recommend to make the photo not as flat?

To get feedback on your images it is best to open a new topic with these photos in the Critique Corner.
Start a topic over there and you will get plenty of feedback.

Does the TF actually know about the soda cans and PVC pipe from 30 years ago?

Mostly it's about the light. You could use a reflector or a strobe. Or take the picture in a place with better light.

The biggest benefit to my photography was learning off-camera strobes (mostly studio lighting at the time).. And I mostly shoot with available light. The benefit I got was from learning to "make the light happen" --I started paying attention to the light I was seeing when I wasn't using flash.

You can certainly improve things with post processing, too, but that just helps a little. Getting the light right helps a lot.


C&C always welcomed...
On my images, of course, and on my words as well--as long as it's constructive :).
