    Apart from the first image, you are using a tad too much flash. Watch your backgrounds, especially in the last image, my eyes are drawn to the blue door. The composition and crops on some of the shots could be better. Always get down to eye level with the model, makes it better for us to communicate with he/she. Probably the best image would be your first one, needs a little flash or reflector to cut the shadows but it's good! :thumbup:

    This is just my opinion! Your mileage may vary... :)

    Thanks for the input. 1-3 are the ones I like the best. What could make these images stronger? I had my flash on ttl full power

    Of the bunch, I like the last one the best. Besides the blue door.
    #1 Her positioning is awkward, it looks like she's holding onto something. If she is, it might be a good idea to show what this is
    #2 I like the pose but she has that deer in headlights look. Lower the flash power and maybe back up a little
    #3 Nice lighting on this one but she's too far off to the left. Try to utilize the rule of thirds when doing horizontal pics
    #4- back up a little to show her arms and don't cut off her head
    #5 Beautiful! I really like this one, the light seems just right. It would have been better suited to have her in the center of the photo on this one
    #6- too much flash again, you can see leaf shadows on her face
    #7 nice posing and use of props.

    On a side note, try having her look away from the camera to give your shots some drama. Also, stop the lens down to f4. You'd be surprised how much sharper this lens is at f4 rather than 1.8 and yes you'll still blow out the background at f4 trust me...I SEENT IT! LOL

    No C&C from me, but THAT is a scary Title. I thought I was going to read an online confession.

    yeah watch the flash. Some of the shots are altering her skin tone and you are not getting consistent results.

    From a beginner - I like the colors in #1 but she seems too far away and the sky overpowers the image. #3/4 She could be positioned better in the frame. Agree with the other comments.

    Thanks for all the feedback guys I appreciate it. Seems like I need to watch my flash and keep practicing. Off topic question question can I make my flash go off when I don't have it on my camera? 430 ex II
