    The first two make her look like she's an amputee. I think if you had moved a little bit to the side, this one would've been really nice. #3 would look nicer if you cropped off a little bit more of the right side.

    thanks for the comment

    i'm horrible with poses. i didnt realize that about the amputee and the last picture was more of a test shot but i liked it.

    uh....have her smile?

    my brother did my "senior pictures" almost 7 years ago. i think he ended up taking a roll of film, if not more. most of them turned out very well, and i think i was his first "real" portrait work outside. never made many prints though, just enough for my mom LOL

    1 and 2 look a bit washed out, maybe you want to meter on her face instead? i dont know i havnt gotten into that much (yep i better go find me a book on metering )

    well have fun, if you have a digital, at least you can do a LOT of playing around!!!

    I like your choice of locations, and I think they can work well for you. Posing didn't come naturally to me either, and it's something I still struggle with. I spent a lot of time browsing websites of other photographers, reading books and just trying different ideas.

    I like the concept of the fence behind her, but maybe step over to the right, so her body is at an angle to you (so she isn't flat/straight forward toward the camera). Angles are more flattering

    Then have her just glance toward you with her head, not her body. Her foot can still be up on the fence, but have her leg at a wider angle.

    I did my first photos ever, as senior portraits for my boyfriend's little sister (last year). It was a lot of fun...for me, her and her mom.
