    Hi Sarah

    I like the idea of these portraits... However, I feel that all of these are a bit overexposed (too bright).

    This can be corrected somewhat in post processing... It is, Mind you, a better idea to get the exposure correct right out of the camera, if possible...

    Keep shooting. :)

    1,2,and 4 are pretty good. The third shot just doesn't resonate with me at all. This backlighted, lens flare type of look is very hot right now...I am seeing it all the time on fashion and personality profile photos of music and entertainment stars like Rihanna,etc.
    Your subjects are all attractive young women, for whom this type of look seems to coordinate pretty well.

    I like the poses for the most part but the color is off. If it's deliberate, well, stop.

    I actually like the colour. I mean, it's not completely OUT there so much that it looks ugly. It just enhances the pictures to give them to feel to suit to the photographer's style of photography.

    Here is a link to a short gallery showing how this style of post work can look.

    Warning: potentially NSFW/lingerie type photos. No nudity, but, you know, not the kind of stuff you want to open up at your work station...

    It would be nice if you had a really crummy, dust-filled old lens that had a nice, very round, multi-blade diaphragm, like an old, single-coated M42 thread mount lens with a pre-set diaphragm system, and maybe really slicked-up,almost polished diaphragm blades that had been worn smooth from years of use...shooting that kind of a lens right toward bright light sources will usually give veiling glare, which is what you are after: "veiling glare". Modern, multi-coated lenses actually work against this kind of effect.

    I kinda like the retro 60's/70's polaroid type look. Takes me bad to another era.
