I did a shoot today for my stock portfolio in a music store with the theme of music lessons. A week before I did some street-casting of a young woman I met at a gym who had never modeled but had great lines and a wonderful attitude. I felt I could work with her. After all the piano, violin and trumpet shots I asked if she wanted to try some glamor shots. She was nervous at first but I coached her into delivering some passion into the lens and she connected. It was great to see her open up.

Where's the rest of her?...Does she only have a head?
I would like to see more of her as these are all the same.
the last one is my favourite, she has a great smile.
3 isn't doing he complexion any favours

yeah have to agree....try taking a step or two back. You could always crop later so Id suggest getting a wider perspective, and more options of perspective, next time

I did like your light.

Oh and ease up on the sharpening a little.

Thanks guys for the comments. The tight crop was intentional. I was shooting in a music store and there were guitars coming out of her head. We may do a reshoot in my studio with a planned background.

I am not a Noiseware filter guy. I did some softening on the second image but I shoot for Getty and let the art directors filter if they want. Plus, I kinda like the edgy grunge on third one. Many may disagree with my approach but I am more concerned with lighting, angles, and the overall emotion of a shot.

As an aside, your OP stated that these were "glamor shots", but "glamor" and "edgy grunge" tend to be mutually exclusive.
