    The first one seems that she is a bit out of focus and a little dark. The second pic seems like she is a little bright, maybe your flash was a little too close. The 3rd pic she's cut off and probly would have came out better with a closer shot, I like the way the light from the phone lights her face. The 4th pic is a little cool, something different, it would have been cool if you could have got her centered in the pic. Other then that not bad for first time portraits.

    I can't see your pics from where I am right now but I'm curious... Why would you use rear curtain sync for a portrait?

    I dont think shes too bright in the 2nd at all.. The 2nd is the best. It really shows off her nice skin tone.

    thanks for the input guys....i thought the flash was a little too bright too so i halved the power but it looked a little too dark ....so i kept the first one

    and i chose the rear curtain sync bcoz i wanted to get all the ambient light to get a little bokeh and also i thought i didn't any other slow sync at that time ....turns out it does have slow sync.....:D

    Rear curtain sync provides a benefit only if there is subject movement.

    didn't know much abt it i was too excited ....i did try the movement one which ended up as #4, but as an amateur my only aim was to take a picture at night and i read the camera instructions it said this would help
