    I had my first portrait shoot today. Although it WAS with my brother and his girlfriend, I was extremely nervous. The day was overcast and a bit dim, so I had to lighten the pictures up in photoshop. Some of them I added a soft focus effect because that was what they wanted.

    All in all I'm pleased with the photos. I need to get more comfortable directing people and telling them how to pose, it was hard to do.

    Any critiques would be great! :)

    My favorites are #1 and #7. I also shot some on film (B&W), but won't have those done till Tuesday or so.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I scrolled and looked and scrolled and looked more and the the colours jumped out at me when I came to the last photo. And I like that a great deal! You see her polished nails in No.6, too, but somehow with her not looking into the camera, her lips and face in general seem a little less colourful. So No. 7 definitely gets my vote.
    I like the close crop of No.2, by the way, but am not sure whether I like the top of your brother's head cropped out?
