A friend of mine ask his kin to pose for a few photos and we did smal session.

She was very nervous but it is OK she is just 15 years old.

Your comments and suggestion are always more than welcome.

Hey Zak,

I like the first one - the angle is really different.

The second one, I am not too sure about the white it looks rather distracting.

The last one, i think you need to get her to experiment a lot with her facial expressions. She looks really unhappy... i think she maybe needs to either half smile or just pout or something...

But that first one is ace...

I especially liked the third one. Light diffuses into her emerald eyes, while modelling the beautiful subject, thus giving more of a plastic quality to the picture.And you've skillfully captured this. My only real complaint is about the curvy way her chain hangs, like a string, which ,I think, should not be following a symmetrical path as with her open collar.

Hey thanks for those comments

First, her smile it is not so beautifull I think and I said her to be a little different than smiling (I will find one to show her smile)
Eyes are very nice so still looking to prepare the best photo of her eyes.


Yes I've noticed the chain direction but after shooting so too late now....

..and she was very very nervious thus it was soo hard to do this session with her..

No comments about colorr matters, and other photo quality issuesso it might be OK....:idea:

Zak

Very lovely girl.
Let her keep her neck and shoulders relaxed when you shoot.

Also try to keep 2 catchlights in the eyes most of the times.
Love to see more.

I really like the last one, although I miss the second catchlight and the shirt is a bit hot.
Try raising your keylight to light the face more than the shirt.

Greetings,
Frank

I don't think a model necessarily be smiling. Rather, some blues, some melancholy,in the sense of concentration of feelings may even look fascinating. Could even be achieved, if not natural (might be somewhat risky for looking kitsch)!! I think Frank may have more to say about this issue out of his real life experience.

I was thinking that this girl could be very interesting....but it was very hard to keep her relax enough to see natural beauty of her face....and Yes, not neccessary smilling is always for good shots.

And for the last photo #3 the one thing is not good is what Frank said...little too hot part of the clothes. Second light would made this photo very good....sorry for not including it...

Here is on additional photo "in couple" and I try to add some dramatic look to this photo....The male is OK with strong look butshe is little too tight and it is possible to seeshe is beeing nervious,... so.....what do you think
