She is cute, i really like the third one. Her position, the wind in her hair.. great image. I think she looks crazy short in the tree shots though, and the way her head is positioned and that you can't really see her neck i think it makes her head look to big for her body.

The second and the third are the best of the bunch.

These were all shot with my 5d and sigma 24-70 and 85 1.8. I used 1 strobe shot through a softbox as well. I was trying to get her to let her neck show, also its hard when im 6'5 and shes like 5 foot lol. I was pretty much laying on the ground lol, and the tree fell down so thats the top of the tree on the ground.

It's also a horrible time of day to shooting by yourself. I know this is exactly what it looks like the magazines do, but those guys have 20 people in the back blocking out the sun and reflecting it back in for a nice soft glow.

4 and 5 the background is detracting from your model, you're better off getting her away from the background and letting the DoF fuzz that you for you. You still get the woodsy look without the interruptions. You were nearly there with #6 (background wise) but the damn weeds are in too close there.

Careful with the turkey arm with female models.

You were brave... going out in the high sun with a model wearing white... The third and last shots work best for me. The comments of Joelene and aram535 are good points... I agree with them both. Thanks for sharing

#2 and #3 are much less flattering than the rest due to her being squared off to the camera. With a curvy model, twisting the body and shooting from a bit more to the sides (like you did with the others) provides a more flattering look.

#4 has nice "S" curves.

thx for the tips guys, i didnt like the loacations and the time of the day. I shot these at noon, she only had the time for them then. The next time i shoot her i wanna do it at around 5-7pm, which is what i planned on. Ill do what you guys said next time. Are the ones on my zenfolio any better? If you have the time to critique some of those it"ll be great.
