    By The Sea

    Agree with this as well. Consider lighting the model using reflector or other way - this will bring the focus to her and create pleasing light on her.

    Before and after, but... is it 'after' enough?

    I certainly like the second version better. I do love the composition as well as the colors. The curved line at the bottom helps to keep my view within the runner as well. From it's upper end I am directed at the mountains while it's lower end in the bottom right corner directs me to the path in...

    67mm dia filter with 52-67mm adapter vs 52mm dia filter

    I would say it depends on the filter and lens combo. What's your lens and type of filter?

    Beginner Macro

    As @jake337 pointed out your camera is fine. You can go and purchase better one if would like but D5500 is perfectly capable of taking tak-sharp photos. From your photos actually - the photo of the butterfly is really sharp (maybe not perfect but close to). However it has too much per-pixel...

    [Product Photography] Black velvet Hugo Boss

    I actually don't mind black on black and you did well controlling the light - no visible reflections, so that's very good. The exposure however should be increased in my view and as @tirediron stated - the second hand would benefit if it is another position where it doesn't obscure any...
