    **Put the NSFW on the title.. because im not sure whether her being 'that' revealing in the first shot is considered so or not. Better safe than sorry?***:lmao:

    Was going through my picture folders recently and found these. Thought id see what kind of C/C I could get on these in hoped to better my portrait photography.
    First of all, the first shot was taken before I got my DSLR with a Nikon Coolpix (used what I had at the time..lol):meh:
    Second and third, when i first bought my dslr --testing it out on a friend ... so I was quite the noob in Portrait mode (tsk tsk):lol:

    I've come a long way since then...just have not taken anything recently ( I'm working on that)

    So as far as these go.. framing/composition, lighting(natural), PP, etc...
    any pointers or even a good swift kick in the ass would be great :D lol

    I learn from my mistakes.

    So what do you think? Let me have it!:p

    The hair in her face in this one is driving me nuts..lol But i wasnt sure i should mess with it.

    EDIT: Also, this isnt the first ive posted shots of her-- ( and her damn blue hair..lol) so yes, its not a blue 'tint' her hair has some bright ass blue streaks in it. ...thought id throw that in there. K im Done.:biglaugh:

    Other than the colorcast, clipped shoulder and shadow around her head, I think the first one is decent for auto p&s. I like the highlights on the skin on her shoulder, cheek, nose, and forhead, The second and third I think could use better lighting, but I am on my laptop so could not say for sure. They look a little dull like they need some fill. #2 doesn't look flattering. Looks like she doesn't have a neck, or is a hunch back. I would say other than the stray hairs being excessive, #3 is the best. It looks intimate and candid. If you had some better lighting with some highlights/glow, maybe a little skin smoothing and the stray hairs gone, I would think that #3 would be a pretty damn good shot. ( of course, thats just my personal taste though )
