I did not look at EXIF datas but first thing that I see is that you had lower light or your shutter speed was a little fast or depending what you metter on. That is why the second photo should be left out of showing to her.... or convert to BW with some levels corection.

Also #6 is missed with WB and I do not why is you were having the natural light. Change the WB or exclude this one also.

That is negative.

Other photos are OK. Lower shooting positiong doesn't surve for every persons but some here are OK like 3 and 5. More blurry background would be even more and with fill in flash you could have very very nice images.... keep it mind for futther shoots.

hi mate

from a tech point i think some of the hots are under exposed. this may be due to the metering mode/point as thereis quite a highly lit backing. This is no biggie and good old ps can fix this up quite nicely (well most of the time)

i think in one of the shots also the face is out of focus.

Im not sure abou the colour tone in the last shot, i tink this needs to be neutralised.

For me shot 1 works best, but i think the look in the last shot has the most potential.

Messed with it a bit, still not happy with it but like i said, i tink this angle has lots of potential.

I like the expression in her face in the first shot. It has emotion and engagement, but it's ambiguous.

I'm not good at all with this kind of thing. People look wooden when I'm trying to do it.

Dear Zak & Ken, your words which are as valuable as gold urged me to revise my shots. As a matter of fact I was somehow disappointed after having downloaded the images onto my computer. Ah, they had all ooked nice on the LCD screen of my camera and I was happy shot after shot:-)...How mistaken I was!! The lighting conditions which were not very generous and that I did not have a tripod, compelled me to a narrow range of Aperture and Shutter speed. The limitation of a non DSLR camera concerning ISO wasanother story! You see, there isalwaysa lot of excuse* for a crappy job:GHere's the exif info:

#1 Av:f/2.8 Tv:1/50 spot metering

#2 Av:f/3.2 Tv:1/125 pattern(darn! How I could not notice!)

#3 Av:f/3.2 Tv:1/40 spot metering

#4 Av:f/3.5 Tv:1/20 spot metering

#5 Av:f/ 3.2 Tv:1/25 spot metering

#6 Av:f/3.2 Tv:1/20 spot metering

''fill in flash you could have very very nice images.... '':cool:

Many thanks forthe B&W advice, Zak! Hope my attempt belowworks...

Btw,I shoul say that I find the editby Ken to be a great improvement!

For the last shot* we moved to another part of the verandaoverlooking the setting sun which imbued the subject with such an oversaturatedcolour :)

Dear Barbarian, as a matter of fact, thishas beenmy first time shooting someone modelling! I can say I found it much different than my usualphotographing experience of architecture and landscapes during whichI mostlyavoid including people. But I thinkI wasfortunate, at least, subjectwise!Although it was her first modelling experiencealso, shenever gottense and also did not spare her relieving smile in between the shots :)

And here's my attempt of editing some images I posted:
