    perhaps a little information would be helpful. what's the purpose of the shoot, e.g. senior, model, head shot, bridal, just for fun? What's her age, etc.

    Find shade, use a reflector and get someone to hold it. Light is important outdoors. If you have a decent flash, meter for the background and switch the camera to M and use flash.

    whats with the diagonal lines going through the picture?

    When doing portraits you want to see the face. that picture shows us nothing. The only time its somewhat ok not to show all of the face is when there doing somthing thats simply...them. Them doing somthing that expresses how they are, and there personality.. for instance runing and jumping with her arms wide open and her face kinda looking the other way with her hair kinda covering that part of face you can see. if i saw that id see a girl who is happy, loves to have fun, and is outgoing. Portraits tell alot about someone/

    I think that is water....scroll to the right and you will see the rest of the pics---including her face.

    The one with the CD reflection is cool--I like it. The close ups look as if she is talking....might want to make sure your model stays still.

    Keep practicing! :thumbsup:

    haha, good call kcp.

    I like the one where shes leaning on the handicaped sign.. shows her character a bit.

    The one with the highlighters and her drawing is a good idea.. that shows her talent. but.. whos drawing? get her in that picture.
