    This is my first photoshoot. I used my Nikon D60 with a standard 18-55mm Lens and also a ad-on wide angle lens.

    I placed the best photos from the shoot in this Picasa Gallery.

    Had a quick look through them. Like someone else said there are some good shots and some not so good ones. What really impressed me though was your use of light and what looks to be natural light. There are 3 or 4 that the lighting really stands out to me in and make for, in my inexperienced opinion, fantastic shots.

    Some good shots Dylan, and some very attractive models. I kind of liked some of the shots done with the add-on lens, but they all seemed to be a bit underexposed--it might help to add a bit of + exposure compensation when using the add-on wide angle lens attachment. I like its sort of Lensbaby-like imprint that it puts on its shots.

    There were quite a few shots where your compositions were spoiled by framing the subject with too much top space, and cutting off the bottom of the frame too abruptly. That's the one mistake I see you made over and over. Otherwise, some of your shots and ideas were pretty good.

    if you want solid, useful critique, just us 3, 4 at MOST photos.. people don't have time to sit there and tell you whats wrong with all your photos.. also. its a good idea to put a space between each photo, and number them.. for easy reference (in #1 i like.. blah blah) etc

    i like the faces you caught in #1 and #2, though 1 is too centered and 2 you cut off her shoulder (and the lighting is uneven between the two)...

    those 2 are my favorite... the rest don't do much for me... (disclaimer: i like more of the candid type portrait shots than model-ish shots... and i guess if i see a model type shot i think they should be held to a higher standard for some reason lol)
