    Hi everyone! I'm a newbie :)

    These are a few of my more recent portraits that I was *considering* putting into my portfolio. I have had 12 hours of actual photography credits (required for my Design degree) The current photography class I am in is one I took for FUN! I love taking pictures of people and would really like to take it further. I just don't know if I am any good at it. My professor is a softie and doesn't like to hurt our feelings during critiques. SO hopefully you guys can give me some tips for more salable portraits?

    Fill flash? It doesn't look like they need it... Am I the only one that feels this way?

    1 and 2 are definitely in need of some fill. And number 3, the background could have been ironed.

    I think they are maybe slightly cold.

    Make them a little bit warmer and I think they would be much nicer
