    I'm still trying to work with natural light and get the results I want. I think I'm getting closer, but not there yet. I'd love c&c on these, please.

    All of these were shot with f/10 and a shutter speed of 1/800. ISO at 1600.

    I would like to do portraits professionally. I just don't feel like my work is up to par yet. My latest goal has been using natural light without blowing all the highlights.

    I like these a lot, except for the last one, the noise, and the weird shadowing on her neck area doesn't look good to me.

    Hi Lacey,
    They are very good photo's but drop your iso to 100, noise is a problem at high iso.
    Also you shot at 1/800, you would get the same results with no noise at 1/125 or 1/250 and your f/stop doesnt need to be as high either.
    They are really well composed well taken shots but your sacraficing quality for high numbers that you really dont need.
    In portraits always focus on the eyes and nothing else, the rest will fall into place, try different f/stops but the golden rule is ALWAYS focus on the eyes(which you did).
    The photo's are really great but if you lowered your high iso you would have a higher quality than you have. Unless you want the grainy look in black and white stick with a lower iso.
    Best wishes
    Mark
