ok.. can i come in and talk about these>?
Roy.. you are doing a good job with the photos..
and i am sure you would like some feed back to make these even better on your next subject or if you have a second session with her... right>?
what i do when work with a subject - even as gorgeous as yours..
1. determine face shape. and apply what lighting fits..
2. consistently short light the female subjects if possible. (makes the face look longer) - your subject doesn't need short lighting but #7 is almost a perfect shot and why it looks awesome is because the short lighting is applied..
3. find the hair part and shot from the open side (yours is left side of her face.. you should give her more photos from her left side "open side of hair") you probably have them, but i don't know and i see the first 5 photos are from her closed side hair part.. all from the same angle - problems i have learned with this, is right eyes are covered up.. and shadows from the over hanging hair could come into play.. #2 is example of what talking about.
4. i also look for lazy eye of the subject. find out when they smile what happens with their eyes.. that way i don't have them do certain smiles full, half or small.. etc. - her i don't think you have any issues.. - i am just saying what i do when i go thru my process..
anyways... roy.. you do good work.. and don't take this from the phamster is bad.. i am just sharing my stuff
Great stuff, that is something I need to be told as Its not something I would even consider!! This is the reason I come to these places, great stuff and really well put as to be helpful and not put down, thank you Pham

great set....I thought the same thing as Pham as to the angle you were shooting in relation to the part of her hair. I am also curious what others think of the ankles crop on #6. Does this work? I am trying to do more creative crops.
I think these are really nice shots and could be even better taking on the advice above. The crops stood out to as the main thing that could have been better. They are all centered which I think 'boxes' her a little, and I would like to see shot 6 a lot tighter.
