Upload & Sell: Off
Hello! This is my first post! A couple of months ago, a girl in my class asked me to take her pictures for her senior portraits. I have never taken someone's portrait before, but I went ahead and said yes anyway. Literally, an hour before the shoot, I purchased a light reflector. While I am satisfied with the shots for my first time, I feel like they are missing something. Since I'm new, I don't have an Upload and sell membership yet, so here is the link to my Flickr of them: http://www.flickr.com/photos/christopher_ayers/sets/72157630290165354/
Please only critique the pictures of the girls. Some of the ones that I wouldn't of uploaded where uploaded upon their request (such as them hugging). My favorite one was number 7 but I feel like its missing something. That may be because it wasn't supposed to be serious (it was sort of behind the scenes, he sister was to the left of her, and she asked me to crop her out). I feel like its the lighting in these pictures that doesn't make it. I used the 50 1.4 the most, then the 100 macro, and only used the 70-200 a little. Any thoughts?
As mentioned it was my first photoshoot ever, but firm,constructive criticism is appreciated.
