Very natural. You could arrange more background here for more space.
Nice series! Personally, I would have preferred if she showed a hint of a smile in one of the pics, but that's just me. I especially like shots 3 and 5. The composition of 5 really rocks
Does the model have a favourite shot? (Because we're all hardest on ourselves, it's always interesting to see which shot the subject favours)
One thing I noticed in a few of them, is that the light is very even...there isn't much a ratio on the model's face. The first & the last do have a ratio, which helps.
These are pretty good, but too even.
#3 is a really nice shot, but would really have rocked at a 2:1 or 4:1 ratio.
My only personal nit would be in shot #1, and that would be with the posing......it looks like a maternity shot. I not saying she looks fat, but look at the pose...arched way back with the hand on the hip like that accentuates the tummy area.
You can change the lighting pattern and the ratio, simply by moving the model, moving your own position or moving the lights. It's much more of a pain to move the lights, so remember to change your angle and not just have the model turning.
