Ok so my contribution to this forums usually consists with picture of a red dusk and my cat. A photo club I recently joined went out to Uni last week to take a few pictures. Amongst the various things we photographed there was a member who offered to casually model for us. Bearing in mind that this is the first time I've ever done portrait shots, and that the model was casually striking poses so half of it is luck of timing. Please be as critical as you want. I think I managed to get thorugh a slightly sad/disapointed emotion in one of them but other then that my own personal critique says the photos are reasonably bland. What could I have done to improve? Also too late now since the filter was at home, but I have a soft focus filter as well. Would this have benefited any of the photos?
