good start

I'd have either cropped tighter or got her all in the frame
the left hand is the closest thing so it makes it look larger than it really is
always good to try and get a bit of white on each side of the eye

Ok first attempt so still learning... I have about 100 pics. This may not be the
best crop or lighting....

You've gotten her to do a nice pose, but I agree with viperx27 about the cropping.

Keep it up :D

Thanks, This was our first shoot so maybe the next one will have less first time jitters, I will up a few more.

I like the crop on the first one, it has sort of a magazine cover look to it.
Very nice!

I like the first one, though I do agree with cropping less or cropping tighter.

The second one looks like a very awkward pose, not so much the legs but the right arm looks oddly positioned.

A little more light could have been beneficial if it was available.

Everything else looks exceptional though!

The second pose (as mentioned) looks uncomfortable, and the backdrop wrinkles distract me. I much prefer the first one, but minus the cropping issue that the others have mentioned.

the first one is good.... as for the second... i do like it still man...

Start playing with the lighting man... it would do you great work.


It's all about WHITE BALANCE.

Ok will do, this was both of ours first shoot so I didn't expect perfection this time around - I have the lights although I had them bumped down to about 1/4 power. I need a light meter... next on the list.

But anyways thanks for the comments.

Hmm, last one I think would have been better if the model had turned to the left more, so she was looking more to the side rather than the back. Nice composition however :) She's also got a good expression, pose just seems a tad weird IMO.
