Nice lighting. I'm wondering why she's in such a stilted pose, & do either of you own a clothes iron? ; )

Maybe that's the point of the photo. Makes you wonder why she has such an expression, what's she thinking, what's going on in her life...

I like the idea. The wrinkles in the clothing don't bother me, but what does is the bland pose and complete lack of facial expression, indicating total boredom or apathy on her part. Do you have any other images from this set?

FWIW, I would remove some of the red tones from her skin as well - ESPECIALLY her hands, they're bright magenta - add in some cyan and yellow to balance it out, and maybe bring up the exposure on her face a little so she pops more. It would be super easy with layer masks on curves or selective color or color balance or hue/saturation or whatever method you want to use.

QUOTED IMAGE

She appears to be a lady, though with the stern look there could be some discussion about that. She's also wearing red clothing against a red background...definitel​y red, even drifting off into a really CRIMSON red (ROLL TIDE!!!...oops, couldn't resist).

I would say it's a smashing success!!!! Yep, it's definitely a..."Lady in Red"!!!!!!

Let me ask this, if I wanted to make a portrait and I wanted the person to appear upset or angry, what colors should I use? What pose and look should she/he be giving? Would you have the same feelings if the background and dress where green or blue?

There have been artists that have had entire careers with work based on our psychological response to color.

This is it for me as well. She looks bored to the point where she's starting to get mad. Like maybe you were taking too long to do this or that and she is ready to go home.

....and the red hands....makes for kind of an odd effect.

...such a great response for those who always seem to follow some sort of "rules" or to change the photographer's opinion by suggesting to follow certain trends to consider a photograph successful.

I don't believe the "greats" of the past ever considered following rules, they freely created their own style/s that everyone now praises!!!
