    I am a novice photographer. My enjoyment for the hobby far exceeds my talent. As I'm trying to learn, I took some senior photos for my boys' babysitter. Any feedback/comments/critique would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!:mrgreen: I am here to learn!

    You have some pleasing compositions here, well done.

    One thing that stands out to me, is that in several of them, there isn't enough light on her face. In some of them, she had dark 'raccoon' shadows in her eyes...which is a shame because she has big beautiful eyes, as we can see in the first photo.
    What you need is fill light. It could be as simple as using something to reflect some of the sunlight back into her face. Flash can also be used to fill in shadows caused by high/bright sunlight.
