    My Nikon D50 just came in last week, so this is the first chance I have had to try it out. Anyhow, these are also the first real portraits that I have attempted. I went to visit the family, so I turned my sister into my guinea pig for these shots. :D

    I would really like to get some honest opinions and any tips on improving in portraiture work...:)

    Here are the shots:

    **sorry there were so many**

    Thanks,

    Good Stuff! And welcome to the forum. I like these shots, and I really like the composition and the hair in 9. The only thing that I don't like is in 4; see how there is one small group of hair that is in front of her ear? I think it should have been behind her ear like the rest of her hair, o well. But good, sharp images, and definitely good color.

    Heya again, Angie.
    Wow, your sister is a very very pretty sister. And she is not new to "being the guinea pig", by the look of things: she poses quite freely!
    I also like Photo 9 (the b+w one) best of all, the way she looks, the light and her hair are really nice in that one!
    And I like all those photos in which she does not sport her turquoise eye make-up (but my opinion on that does not count since it is my very personal opinion on this particular make-up). She poses nicely in 1, 7 and 10, I think.

    #8 is my favorite. It looks the least posed and there is something very.. gentle.. about it. I don't know. I like it.

    I think the first is head-and-shoulders above the rest. I think it's the posing. Definitely, the clothing/background choice it best here. Add the wonderful expression, and you have a wonderful portrait. Maybe clone out the bright spot at the bottom right corner.

    In my opinion, I think her eye makeup is a bit excessive and is drawing away from the rest of the picture. Other than that I think the shots are very good and she is very photogenic. Good job.

    Very well done! They are all very wonderful, but #1 is a stand-out for me, it just oozes with quality!
