    She is a fabulous model! And I love the outfits. She did great! :thumbup:

    I don't know your lighting setup, but it seems you are lacking even lighting. If this was intentional, that's fine, but the stronger right-hand lighting is casting shadows that I find a mite distracting. (#s 5-7 are the exceptions)

    Overall, they are good. I am betting this was a fun shoot! :)

    Cool shots!

    I agree with Terri that the light could use a little work. In several of the cases, just having her face the other way would help, so that she would have the light fall on front of her rather than her back. I'd also like to see a litter lower angle on several of them, so that you are more eye-level with her.

    I really like her look and her posing. She seems a natural at this and is very beautiful.

    Wow! Did she pose like that all on her own or did you help her a lot? I wish I had a model like that to work with. These are very cute!

    I helped out a lot. I was proud of my self cause Im not very good at posing. Still learning.

    Thanks for all your feedback!

    You did an awesom job and she's a great model. I think your white balance is off. She seems a little blue.

    If the poses where your idea... WTG... I think all the poses are great but I agree with the above cropping and lighting comment. Great job.

    If you did those in B&W, they would sure look like the old pin-ups of the WW2 era. If you have ever seen old copies of "Yank" magazine they look just like those.

    Great job!
