Hi Pitter, are you looking for any critique/pointers? There are a couple of things to consider if you are having a play again.

Mark I know the photo is un professional. It is a snapshot. I am limited to the on camera flash which produces those unpleasant shadows in the small indoor space where the photos are taken. Certainly interested in suggestions taking those conditions into account.

Let's take the lighting out of it for a moment, as on camera is always going to be hard without the ability to bounce or use window light. The main thing for me is the head turn/hair. If you had Daniela facing the other side, you would have created a far narrower looking face which all women like

Getting back to lighting, by the nature of your settings you have killed a lot of the ambient light, so your flash is giving the vast majority of the exposure. Without seeing what the room was like and the lighting etc., it's hard to say for sure what you could have done with it, but by dropping the shutter speed to 1/80s or even 1/40s (there is IS I think in that body) then you've doubled or trippled the ambient. Also, pushing the ISO up to 1000 or 2000 would again have had the same affect, so you would have a lot less 'Deer in headlights' look and it would likely (again, don't know the environment) have been more flattering.

It's not a bad shot at all, but having a bit of a play with these things could help make it better still.

Thank you Mark those are very helpful suggestions. I will try raising the ISO. I don't think the a6000 has IS in the body but I could be wrong.
