    Me and my friend went out a few weeks ago and took some pictures.

    This was the first time I took portraits of anyone other then my kids. :blushing:

    It was a overcast, but very bright day, and I think the white wall kinda acted as a very bright reflector...I was trying to find a wall that was another color, but wasn't able to. :grumpy: Oh well.

    I desaturated it a bit because her red sweater was almost GLOWING red and was a bit distracting.

    C&C please!

    I love the lighting as well as composition and colors. The only thing I would have done different is adjusting her pose by making her have a bit more attitude. This could be achieved by making her stand up a little straighter, but still have her head tilted.

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    I think it's a fabulous shot! The wall looks a little drained out of color, but you already made mention of something similar. I would love to take shots like this! :p Definitely my style.

    What are you using to edit?? In Photoshop CS2 you can use a mask and only desaturate the sweater if you wanted a different take on it.

    Very nice shot, overcast is a good thing usually.

    Im using PS Elements 6...I could do that though! I kinda like the desaturated look, but it seemed to take a little away from her face. I will see how that looks.

    Thanks for all the comments! I needed a confidence boost! :) I think I've looked at my pictures so much that I start to find too many things I dont like about them, and then start thinking they all stink. :lmao:

    A little more headroom in the frame would be nice.. I also agree on having a little more attitude; get her to "pop" her hip. It'd give her body so much more dimension and curves
