    This was my first try with a lighting kit and someone actual posing for me. I didn't have a tripod so there a bit soft. CC please.

    Good, but one thing I don't like is the eyes in 2 could use a tad more light...

    Number 3 though...her eyes are totally black...not something I'd want.

    1: Part of me likes the shallow DOF and part of me wishes there was a lot more DOF. It's a good profile, in my opinion.

    2: That looks like some pretty harsh lighting to me. There are several blownout places. Great photo otherwise.

    3: The girl has a great expression, but the shadows on the woman's face bother me. Also, the girl's face is almost lost in the background due to more harsh lighting.

    4: Definately a keeper, in my opinion. Both have natural-looking expressions and you can tell they really care about each other.

    Overall, nice series. 1, 2, and 4 are all really good.

    I think that the shadows are going to give you a problem in the end. Especially on the 2nd and 3rd ones. There are ways to use a single light setup, create a dramatic shadow and still keep some of the details.

    Reflectors on some of these shots would make them. And eliminate some of the shadows.

    Good idea. Next time I'll try some.
