    I had a small shoot today with this young girl. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I like how some of them came out.But others...ehhh. But I cant figure out what I don't like. Anyone have any ideas? I need all the help I can get.

    I think the shots are good corol and lighting wise. I might of pulled back a little so the top of her head isnt missing. #4 is my personal favorite. All around good job.

    Getting super close with lenses tends to do bad things to people's faces, too... esp with wide lenses. I'm on my wife's machine so I can't easily tell your lens or focal length, but if you had either of these things going on that may contribute.

    In addition to the previous comments, I think they look a little overprocessed.

    #1 the background is weird because it looks blown-out or white on the right-hand side and dark on the left.

    You just need to know how to use natural light to your advantage.

    Shoot in the shade with a dark background and your light source behind you, a winning combination every time, using strobes complicates things.
