I would've liked for a little more clouds in the sky to block out the harsh sun since there were a few flower bushes that would've made for good scenery, but no such luck.

Take the vignette off 1 and 2
3 needs more contrast
7 is too bright

I personally like 5 the best
Overall, I feel like it lacks saturation a bit, try adjusting the highlights and darkening some areas, get that S-curve going.

Thanks for the input! I'll adjust them a little bit tomorrow.

1-5 are pretty good images but her poses and expressions give off a lack of interest and makes her seem pretty bored.

I figured someone would mention that lol. She is a very shy girl and the smiles you see in the pictures are actually her natural smiles. Captured while her friend was making her laugh (I had her bring along a friend because this is actually part 2 of the shoot).

Are you gonna have a part 3? If not and for future reference, I recommend bringing some reflectors and if you have an assistant to help you. Portrait shots require good lighting and reflecting those natural lights to the subject would have helped a lot in distributing those lights around the subject.

What are some good reflectors you'd recommend? I had to get rid of my lighting setup in order to fund some last minute bills. Starting to currently rebuild it, starting with the inexpensive things. After all, I am a full time student. :D

edit: and there most likely will not be a part 3 since from bot days there are plenty of photos that they already liked from shoot #1.

A big refelctor could have also helped shade some of the areas where the sun isn't where you want it. Good light can be found at any location, any time of day, you just have to look for it. Put that friend to work.

Ordering a westcott 43" 5 in 1 reflector today. Going to be making a lot of changes in the light usage department now that I have the actual camera and lens lineup ready!

#1-I'd like to see a little tighter framing on this, but thats personal taste. Great shot, of course some hot spots.
#2-I like this composition a lot, maybe try a reflector to even out the shadows, or find a spot with open shade.
#3-Nice shot
#4-Fun shot, her face looks almost distorted, I'm not sure if thats from embedding or PP or what.
#5-I would crop in slightly on this, just because the light on the left side is distracting, and the the end of the wall on the right as well. Love this shot though.
#6-harsh lighting, scene is great but she looks very uncomfortable and awkward.
#7-Good pose, very harsh lighting. Try closing the flower bush over the stairs, or cropping it out to set a nice frame around her.
#7-Cute shot. My only complaint is the people in the background.

Nice job on all these!

Thanks! My goal for #5 was to have her slightly off center since I was trying to balance out the photos in this shoot since her first shoot a lot more of the poses were centered. I will be chopping out the left side though. It is distracting to see the slither of light leaking through. Thanks for all the input! My Westcott reflector is in the mail. Can't wait to make sunlight obey me! :D

Without having to retake the shot, for #5, try skewing the image so that the wall on the background is completely vertical and see if that works... not quite sure if she will be slanted, should be a 10 degree rotation or so.
