Is the EXIF data correct that she took those group shots at 70mm? Interesting approach, the picture looks great.

Thanks everyone. You guys are right, she did take most of the group pics at 70mm. You can tell by the compression. I told her about the feedback and she appreciates it alot. You can view the whole set here including her pre-birthday photos:

Excellent shots. Her ability to capture the mood is clearly a great skill she has!

She did a great job, especially for it being her first solo gig, and at only 16.

I think she did fantastic and have a few comments (all in the constructive spirit). Some may be a bit nitpicky, but that is really all they need.

First, I love the color and consistency of these. It is a solid set.

1. Cute shot. Nice ligh being reflected into her face. Some may be bothered by her right hand being cut off. As for the flare, I dont know if I like it or not. I also dont know if its real or not. I keep going back and forth.

2. I think this one is a bit too purple for my taste. I wish her shoulders were tilted a bit more to the right side of the frame, but she isnt too straight on where it is an issue. This one I dont think I like the flare.

3. Really cute shot of the girls being goofy. One thing I would watch for (and I know it is hard with a 70-200 lens) is to think about printing, especially for sizes like 5x7 and 8x10. Those ratios will lose quite a bit of the people on the end (the girl on the left side has already lost her elbow). This is one thing that I have to constantly remind myself of.

4. Another cute shot. I feel the blacks may be a tad heavy, and the image could use a little boost in exposure. Watch the spacing - the guys on the left side of the image are nice, the ones on the right are a little too spaced out (I dont like seeing space between people). Finally, watch for consistencies in hands. If you are going to have their thumbs out, have them all have their thumbs out. In this image, I actually like it with thumbs in.

5. Cute, but watch the poles going through people's head. The 2 middle guys have a pole growing from one head, and a tree from another. Moving the camera over 6 inches would have solved this. Same comment applies about the different crop ratios.

6. Same as a lot of the above comments. Watch hands for consistency, spacing, trees/poles, and crop ratio. Plus, the third guy from center is not looking at the camera.

7. Cute. I think this could use a tad boost in exposure (for my taste - this is a style thing of course). I dont know if I like the composition being horizontal, but if you made it vertical it may crop out the hands.

8.This image looks like the guy is the main focus - the lighting is the best on him, as well as he looks to be the sharpest. A bit more light and focusing on her would be better imo.

Again, these are just my opinion given to help, not hurt. Please do not take offense to anything I have said, and if you disagree with some/all of my post, please disregard it. I think your daughter did a fantastic job regardless her age, but being so young is awesome. It looks like she has a good teacher too.

Very nice work, and a great example of the advantage of having a good photog/subject relationship. She really showed the fun energy generated by a bunch of kids ('scuse me, young adults!) in a situation like that.

You're right Madwrench, like I said, I wouldn't have gotten them as relaxed, and thus wouldn't have gotten the same images.

Thanks Red Tie, I appreciate the time u took and your constructive critique. We both went over it together, and she's amazed by your attention to detail, something she's going to have to develop. Right now, she said, she's just focused on composition and getting a sharp image each and every time. Thanks again!!
