 what do yall think?!?!
i would just like opinions from people who arent my friends.

This is my first attempt at a "shoot"
this is one of my best friends from my childhood, 
we didnt have much time, but i think these turned out pretty good.
i am JUST getting started and dont know much about my camera yet, sony a200,  but im learning.
i put my thoughts about each one..


^^^i like this one, cute and sassy.

^^^should have gotten more of her neck, but i thought this was a cute4 face shot,
really bright on the right side.

^^^one of my favs! except the bright sky right above her head.

^^^cute. like it the way it is.

^^^im not sure about this one.

^^^ her face seems a little out of focus to me?

^^^i like it

^^^i like it.

I think they are great! My dad is a photographer and I'm sure he would be impressed with them, especially if you haven't been doing this for long. Keep up the good work!

1st: Looks like it's tilted. She looks as if she is leaning... It's a cute pose and I like her smile. turn her chin toward you a little more and straighten the frame.

2nd: Yea a little more of her nieck would be good and maybe bring her arm up and rest it on her head. Have her tuck her chin mor toward her shoulder as well to give a more dramatic angle.

3rd: Cute but you need a fill flash and a better exposure. Your camera was exposing for the sky, not your subject.

4th: Cute but turn her chin toward you a little more and relax her arms. Maybe have them beside her on the fence.

5th: Turn her chin toward you more. Have her arm up on the tree like she is leaning. In this picture her body looks chopped in an awkward place because the viewer can't see any other part of her body.

6th: Adorable but you need a fill flash to eliminate shadows on her face.

7th: Love it. Turn her chin toward you more.

8th: Love the pose and the tilted frame works in this one. Turn her chin toward you.

When your subjects chin and nose point away from you, it looks passive. You want the subject to look engaged within the frame and you want all the attention to be directed right at the viewer. By tilting her chin toward you slightly, she dominates the frame. If you have any questions just message me. I have been to school for digital photography and run a wedding photography business. Good luck to you
