Thank you so much for the encouragement and the order of preference! You can see one more above. Hope it goes well. So that I've submitted six out of six from our recent mini session : )

I quite appreciated your kind feedback indicating your opinion for each of your picks as well as your keen observation skill : ) As for the left eye in #1; indeed it looks that way in that particular picture! In fact, I like portraits and busts whose turned eyes direct that of the observer to somewhere, enjoying the intriguing theme. So I'd like to come up with better examples soon ; )

Dear Alex, I haven't forgotten the ones whose insightful comments I've benefited from since a long time ago

Hi Bahadir,

I need to get myself on that balcony...beautiful skyscapes and even more stunning model!

I think that the frontal pose works much better, and you have captured the features of your sister in law very well.

As mentioned earlier, I think the lighting on the face is uneven, with there appearing to be a brigther area to the neck. Also, you have to be very careful when using on camera flash, as it can be very harsh and directional light which can be very unflattering.

As an allternative, try just using a reflective surface for fill flash (kitchen foil etc)...you would be amazed at how much fill you can get from improvised materials, and the light is so much softer and flattering.

Hope this helps!

You're most welcome my friend! Would you have beer or wine?? As you mentioned, especially the direct on board flash with limited sync speed on an uneven lit subject can ruin everything! So kitchen foil?? Oh, I'll give it a go! Thank you.

Thanks for sharing the series. #2 is outstanding, the tilt of her seems to bring much of her personality into the picture.

Thank you providing the kind feedback with insightful explanation regarding the tilt, which, perhaps, also reveals the playful inventiveness in the subject : )
