Hello! My friend Charlie (Yes his name is Charlie too) wanted to do a photoshoot with a friend of his Marina yesterday. I was down so we walked around the campus looking for an interesting place to shoot at. We were walking to this place called sunset rec on UCLA campus that is like our recreation center, but then I was randomly like LET'S TURN LEFT RIGHT HERE and we found this sweet little area :) Marina is a super chill girl and has modeled before for some big names so it was a breeze getting her to pose. And I loved the light, what a beautiful day! By the way, notice anything different about this photo? I took the advice of my friend Johnny Yacoub :D

Lovely model; but crop out the blown-out sky totally to get closer to her.

@soundsk - thanks!

crop tighter on this.. not in post, but when you actually shoot. also keep your aspect ratio locked at 4x6 or 5x7. you've got a squarish crop which bothers me.

other than that and the focus as mentioned early, this is a good shot!

I agree with above. Plus the way the sun is against her hair it makes a sort of fuzzy halo. Looks a bit odd.

I kinda like the back-lit halo effect.

Hairband on the wrist is a pet peeve of mine.

Agree with the above. Backlit is a style some like and some don't. I think you did a good job capturing the effect with this shot but it would be a better picture if you had gone in closer. You really don't need much/any of the blown sky in a shot like this.

Also as mentioned above it is ruined by being out of focus. Where you using manual or auto-focus. If AF which settings? Single point AF is generally good in cases like this as you can get the focus spot on the eyes/face.

I have to agree with the above comments that the focus being the biggest issue and then with this shot the empty sky is not doing you any favors if you wanted more headroom maybe lower your shooting angle or change position so that less of the sky was showing. I like the backlit look so on that point I would say you did fine.
