Your way underexposed in #1, #2, #3. #4 and #5 look the best. Pretty niece.

As you see for #4 and #5, it's easier to shoot into a dark background than into backlighting.

I don't think you have problems with the camera so much as with the light. These need some fill light on the subject to bring them up quite a bit. The vignette in #1 is much too obvious.

Selecting the appropriate white balance for the conditions would help with skin tones/color consistency. Don't use AWB if you can avoid it.

#6 looks like the most natural pose to me. I think the pose on #8 wouldn't be flattering on most people since it really brings out the loose skin on the neck beneath the jaw.

pretty subject and nice effort

exposure needs some work on most of them, a good fill flash would have helped with all these photos.

The background is more lit then the subject which takes away from the photo. Try using some strobes next time and you will be in good shape. Otherwise, well composed.

Almost every shot needs fill in. Try a flash with white deflector or a 5 in 1 reflector kit or if you don't mind just cardboard wrapped in tin foil would probably have sufficed. Pretty model let it show :-). Hope this helps.

AGree with Titus. Focus is also off in a few. As has been mentioned, light is a big issue, you are not using it to your advantage.


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

Focus seems to be off in most of them, the skin tones are all over the place. Your exposure is off, needs fill light. Most have distracting backgrounds. Lose the vignette.

I think you have a lot to work on regarding composition and lighting which would apply with any camera.
