    Her smile is kinda ugh, but that's probably what she always looks like.

    Would hit. DOF seems really shallow.

    Does she use HDR house photos? I keep seeing fucking HDR pictures on realtor sites now.

    looks good.

    would have chosen a slightly lighter bg(at least in the upper right, where her hair blends in with the bg).

    lint roller on that jacket too.

    i think she sells AAA insurance, but I don't know if there is a specific name for this type of photography?

    thanks. I had a strobe on the BG, but even at the lowest power 1/128, it was way too bright because I was shooting at 2.8. I had to shoot at 2.8, the bg was wrinkled and messed up

    It's an uncomfortable smile for a person in sales. Not really a look that says "Buy insurance from me". It would also look better if she were wearing a necklace or her company pin on her lapel.

    If this pic is for flyers and mailouts and whatnot, the lint won't reproduce.

    She does have a bit of a wan smile. But then, I've never picked a realtor on the basis of his brochure photo.

    I love the colors. Is it just me or does she seem a bit favored to the right of the photo?

    arent portraits supposed to be at like f/8 - f/16 if the background is right behind them?

    that's what the model photographer was shooting at in the glamour video i got off here.

    the pic looks great. esp since it will be on business cards/posters on her property i'm sure

    i think maybe 1 stop more and you'd still have the background blurred. just my 2 cents. i suck at portraits
