    Here are some shots from a photoshoot I did evening, my first time doing couple shots. I hope there aren't too many photos and you aren't bored by the time you are done looking.

    This is my brother and his girlfriend and they are both very photogenic. They actually posed themselves a couple times when I was thinking what to do next. :blushing: I gave them some idea of what I was looking for in the shot and then they posed themselves as they felt most comfortable. I included both B&W and color as I'm not sure which I like best. I tend to be a color girl and often find it difficult to switch to B&W since I don't know if it's right.

    (PS my brother is a little sunburned since we were out on the water today. That's why he looks a bit pink. :greenpbl:)

    #8 is the best. I love the full view and the pose is just perfect with the water background. Nice job!!!

    Lighting and composition in #7 and #8 make them the winners of the series. I just wish that he had been looking into her eyes in #8, seems he's looking a bit lower (can't really tell).

    I don't like number 5. The legs seem to disappear. The rest are great.

    Nice shot but you gotta hate those squinters look out for those eyes they can ruin an otherwise great shot. I get this in weddings all the time and I tell them to open wide just before I shoot and this sometimes helps.

    Are you talking about people that generally squint when they smile? Yeah, my brother has always done that. I didn't even notice! :blushing:

    Do you think I should crop it in closer or ditch it?

    Nice shots and nice use of the light. Some of them could have used some fill light...the faces are a bit too dark. Fill flash might have helped but a reflector would have worked as well.
