I would like these a lot more if she wasn't giving you such a fake looking smile. That being said, I like the last one with the dog best.

Heh. If in doubt, a dog sells a shot.

In all seriousness, my 2c (perhaps worth less) is that they're over exposed (or maybe over processed, as some have said). Your senior doesn't seem all that comfortable in front of the camera (which isn't surprising), but a great start!

Thanks for all the comments you guys.

And yes, they are quite saturated. Usually it gets a little desaturated and darker when it gets back from the lab.

And i usually do try and get blown out parts in the image, but you're right, i think that it doesnt work for every photo. And i should work on that.

Thanks!

Man I hate saying stuff like this, but her smile is weird. I don't know if its too forced or what, but it seems un-natural -- which I admit might be totally off, but that's the thing that pop-ed into my head when I look at the set. Maybe something between the her big smile and the no-smile would work?

My favorite is the one with her Lab (dog). Very nice shot. The pp is a tad strong on color saturation, but you explained why.

Now that you mention it...that IS very noticeable. I agree with Aram...the smile looks very fake and forced. An elderly wise woman once told me her trick to get natural smiles...she asks her models/subjects to touch their tongue to the roof of their mouth and only half smile. This works quite well because it usually forces to the mouth to open slightly, and it gives the model something to think about and do rather than concentrate on that fake smile that they've used their whole life. You'd be amazed at how well this works. It looks more candid and natural, almost as if they are in the middle of a conversation. Very effective.
