    Not bad...

    Are you using any type of flash?

    I would suggest it to help lighten her face and other dark areas.

    Sometimes the best time to use a flash is outside in the bright sun to light up shadows.

    It's like each photoshoot you get her closer and closer to being nude. So can we expect a full frontal next shoot?

    a little better than the last set... you just need to work on your posing and framing a bit. quite a few of the shots had her posed in an unflattering manner.... and you're still bad about cutting off body parts in the wrong places.

    can you elaborate? i tried gettng all or most of her body in the shots this time "can you move your arm in closer, move your legs in" but that 1st one was an old busted up pier support she was sitting on, wtf is she supposed to do with her leg???

    what is wrong with the framing? and what shots are unflattering, how would i fix it? im not trying to start shit, im honestly currious.

    #1 I like this one, the cropping of the limbs doesn't bother me... just wish there was a little more fill on her face
    #2 dead center comp

    #3 more fill, and she needs to do something else with her hands... it makes her look nervous or uncomfortable... I can't give any advice on hand placement... it's something I'm still working on myself.

    #4 dead center comp


    #5 gives her a pooch line, you cut off her foot right in the middle, and she's dead center on the frame.... a portrait orientation probably would have worked better....

    #15... all that dead space camera right, but you still cut off her hand.

    #18 bruises on her legs.. and she's hunched over

    #19 I would have had her rotate her upper body towards you a little more...

    #20 makes her mid section look oddly bigger than it really is.

    #21... again.. I would have pulled back a tad and shot landscape... pose is great though, probably the best out of the series. (only nitpick, I would have liked to seen her head titled slightly down, and her eyes open, looking at the camera.)

    #22.. dead center of the frame again

    isnt the idea of portraits to have the subject in the center of the frame? If i do the rule of thirds, i get bitched at *blah blah background is dull* or something along the lines.

    #5 was portrait...

    #21, i was pretty much already up to my chest in water in a decently strong current with a fixed 50mm lense.... but it also is my favorite shot.

    I told her next time, she needs to do something about her tan lines, and she needs to smile more, because we were looking over the pictures and she was trying to do that model 'fuck me' look on her face, and it just doesnt look good on her.

    as far as where/when to chop of limbs when you have to, whats the rule on that? I didnt see the fingers in that one, but I was telling her "move your arms in towards your body more, tuck in your right leg more". I took about 120 shots and told her to pick out up to 20 she liked the best and i would process those.

    Most of the shots her hair was in her face like crazy, or she had that crazy look on her face that she just cant pull off. Its hard to get them to do something when they have a mindset on doing something else.

    Im still trying to work on how to get the girls to post, but I cant get it down, and sometimes they just dont want to smile.

    I know a couple of photos could have used more fill flash, but out in direct sun like that, its REALLY hard to see the screen and how the picture looks, any suggestion on that?

    :o I meant landscape...

    centering is fine if you fill the frame with her, but you've got to much "dead space" going on.

    here's an example of what I'm talking about.... she's centered, but she fills the frame.
