    Here is a friend/client of mine who is also a belly dancer and wanted some shots of her for her website. We also did a family shoot but these are what I would love some critique on. Please tell me the good bad and the ugly, I'm working really hard on my exposure and my post processing. Thanks!

    In general, a belly dancer suggests mystery, and I would try to get my lighting and location to reflect that.
    Hence, there is "too much light" in these images...certainly in #1 and #2. Burning-in the edges in #3 is however, quite effective, and this may be helpful with the others...and would help a portfolio to look more consistent.

    Just a suggestion, if you and she like the idea of the beach background, try shooting this again at sunset with a bit of fill flash and careful exposure.
