    My first time doing portraits for someone. Luckily it was my neighbor, so if I sucked it wouldn't matter. I'm happy with how a few shots turned out, and I impressed myself with the post processing on the pics. What do you guys think?

    A good start, but next time:

    Don't use flat lighting unless theres a real purpose

    Use less Depth of Field, minimize the background

    Don't center the subject, place them in an environment that suits their personality

    Add a background of rim light to add depth to the photo, make it look like their not right up against the background

    Expirement with lighting, see what makes your model look best. Try having the sun or key light 45° camera left or right, and use a fill flash from camera position (so you don't have shadows on both sides) or use a fill card to fill in the shadows. This will add depth to the photo, an intresting pattern on the face

    you used a smaller aperture for this pic. the lens blur tool works great though. i enhanced the catchlight in the left eye and added subtle bottom ones. then i got silly and did some vignetting. if i had the skills i'd give her a digital breastlift too. that she'd appreciate :mamoru:
