    Well the gypsy shots were my first time photographing anyone seriously in my young life. It was a lot of fun and there's so many good ones in the roll that I need to scan.

    The second girl was the second of my first portrait shoots. That is, in a formal closed setting. Man, it was a little difficult...I guess I had to be more imaginative? But I told her to wear black because it would be a nice contrast against the white walls of my house and chair things...I am editing more. They were in color but because of my lack of lighting knowledge, I didnt care for the tones. They are "good" to me but I want to take it a step further. Any suggestions?

    For photography, I have learned that you must do your research. Just last night I was reading about points for shooting people to attempt to bring out their best features...I am going to try this on my next victim!!!

    IMO, if you took out the shadows, it would look better. (3rd one)
