I'm not sure if this is the right place for these shots or not, but they were done gratis. These are some portraits I took of my artist friend who wants some shots for his portfolio he's working on. I'm only really getting my feet wet with portraiture, and I'm wondering if any of these are presentable as far as using them in his portfolio? These are the best from the afternoon. I know a few shots have some washed out highlights. Unfortunately, he stayed up late the night before. I had wanted to go out and shoot earlier but we ended up shooting at pretty much the worst time of the day - 2 pm. I have an external flash but I'm not knowledgeable enough with it yet to know all the manual settings, otherwise I would have used fill flash. Any feedback positive or negative is appreciated so I can get better. Thanks. oh, BTW, one thing I noticed (actually while I was shooting and tried to avoid but couldn't given the angle of the light, etc.,) is that my reflection is in his sunglasses on #2. I suppose there's no avoiding that if there's an exact spot you want the shot in? I'll have to photoshop it out.
