Practicing more and more in portrait work, and what better than a brother who needs some senior photo's done. Off camera strobes with shoot through umbrellas, and other light modifiers used also (aka reflectors and diffusers). I feel like every time I do portrait work, I'm doing it wrong and freeze up and just give up. So be harsh with the CC :)

1 is cute and different. Not sure what it says about him, but I get "easy going, just hanging out letting life pass me by" kinda thing. Could be good, could be bad. 4 is interesting, but doesn't strike me as a senior photo... very few of them do, really. 1 maybe.

I'm also bothered by the beard. I know it's probably "him", but I don't think it really suits him, and at LEAST it might have been good to clean it up on his neck.

Cool thanks! I think this is what I'm trying to say, is that I don't know what distinguishes a senior photo and a regular portrait. Suggestions? Tips?

I must admit I'm totally not sure either. I just have it in my head as "would I want this in my yearbook as representation of me?" (were I the senior) And then I think of all the other ones I've seen.

It's pretty much total hogwash though... I mean when I was a senior (and frighteningly that was now 24 years ago) we had all the stiff portraits you usually see with zero chance of freedom expression and stuff. So... ignore me.
