How do you pose them, please? Mirror behind the camera, with LCD screen visible? Brilliant, anyway.

As you see from my avatar, you start with something of an advantage!

You've done very well given a limited "set up". Of course, the subject is quite lovely.

#1 has a classic look. #2 and #3 could benefit from cropping, which would make them very nice. #4 is my favorite. Good collection of poses and expressions.

Thank you for having a look and leaving some thoughts.. :)

No mirrors, no LCD.. All the pics made in about 2 hours the same day.. actually they are about 90.. :D somethimes I get an inspiration and undertake all this running- fast-to-get-the-place hassle.. :) you can find a tech specs for Sony DSC-V1 in Steve's reviews *then you ll understand what I am talking about :D So I don't do these shooting sessions often..

Good luck with your work!

Irena, you are an absolute delight to look at. Its difficult to critique your pictures objectively. They are all lovely. The first one I like your come hither look. The second one I like the lighting on your skin. Very smooth and creamy look. The fourth also has that beautiful lighting which makes your skin look as soft as velvet and as tasty as a peach. And the last pic gives a touch of the here and now with your slight movement. All well done. :cool:

Hi Irena,

Thanks for sharing a great set of photos of yourself.

Usually I prefer soft light, but for some reason (maybe composition / facial expression) I prefer the "harsher" photos of this series, that is: photos 1 and 5 particularly.

But all of them are fantastic. Well done. Did you do this with tripod and timer?

The blur in photo 6 doesn't really do it for me. And the only small suggestion I could make would be to crop photo 3, to just above your head (too much wall / ceiling in my opinion).

Well done for this series!
