    I tried to heed the advice I'd been given by multiple people, I read my manual and practiced, and did another session this past weekend. Here are some shots from the shoot. How am I doing?

    (7 - pretty much same pose as 6 but different setting so different coloring - which works best?)

    sorry, I know there's quite a few, but I'm wanting some good constructive feed back on coloring, composition, ANYTHING! This same girl now wants me to take pictures of her and her daughter. She is even offering to pay me to take those (these I did for free - just for fun). If I'm going to take someone's money for this, then I want to make sure I'm doing the best I possibly can given my experience level.

    There are too many to post answers to...

    Generally you did well, some better than others. I like some of the ones when they are not looking at the camera, more at each other.

    Thank you for your feedback! I tried to number them (the numbers are below each photo) to make it easier if someone had something to say about one photo specifically. "He" never smiles, photos or in general, unless you happen to make him laugh at something so I was very happy when I got a few with even just a smirk!

    #20 is an example of where I am having difficulty getting both pairs of eyes in focus (especially when they are farther away). I'm not sure how to fix this.

    what lens is that and what settings?

    If I had to pick one - #3 & #4
    Although #3 is not cropped enough and #4 is cropped a little too much.

    I noticed that after I got them on the computer, but she didn't say anythign about them. She's a good friend and very blunt so if she'd noticed she would have said something. Next time I try that, will have to find a slightly different angle. :meh:

    I dont know if maybe it is just my eyes which it probably is since nobody else mentioned it but to me a lot of them look a tad out of focus. I really like the comps though. I agree about the "crotch" shots also. I would for sure shoot in raw and do some PP on them. You will be a lot happier with then end result. I am by no means saying there bad photos, i am just saying by doing a little PP will drastically change these.

    I used this lens:
    Nikon Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED AF-S DX VR Zoom Lens

    And I think I was on Program mode but I don't remember the exact settings. I'm sure it's on the copy of the pictures on my computer at home but I can't get the info off the copy I put on my comp here at work.

    I have considered shooting in RAW, but from what I've heard you have to have a certain type of software to edit in Raw. Is this correct or am I mis-informed?

    what about the coloring of these? The lighting wasn't just right or just how I wanted it so I tried to fix it PP but not sure...
