    Some of the young ladies can have some good style when they come to sing, this is something I really want to get in to, so any tips for photographing them would be great.

    Photograph from the front, use a fast lens wide open
    Go in close and crop tighter

    Is this natural lighting only? Looks really great.

    I'd see what you can do with the vantage points and backgrounds. See if you can move around more. I found it took practice and it became second nature to notice poles and posts and trash cans and electric outlets and extension cords, etc. etc. I like to frame to keep that stuff out of my shots as much as possible. If something doesn't add anything to the image, I want it out! of my frame! out of my picture! lol

    I'd try to get away from that door propped open and that green thing behind her. Now there are interesting shadows on the steps over there, that I might try to work into the composition. Sometimes you can crop down a little but with the second one that'd whack off half her ponytail! Not much you can do when stuff is that close to the subject, walk around more and see what you can get. I learned to 'move' things out of my frame by changing my vantage point.

    Thank you for the great advice/tips Sharon, I do try to keep the messy bits out but find it hard as the background is really bad.

    Yes, it is! lol I mentioned a few more thoughts in the other thread. If you're doing this regularly ask if you or they can give some of it a bit of a shove... a few feet can make a world of difference.

    And Derrel nobody needs those paperbag waist jeans to come back in style, I might have flashbacks!! lol Although this style I sort of remember and they aren't the paper bag style exactly, and not the worst of what I remember wearing...
