When meter reading, do I meter on her face only or take multiple readings from around her? If so, how do I calculate the correct reading.
If you are looking for a critique here, I would suggest that you not shoot your
model in the center of a horizontal image. Move her closer to one side or the
other using the general rule of thirds. She appears to be squinting and I agree
that the flower does not need to be where it is located. The blurred background
is a plus so that she stands out more in the picture. As for meter readings,
I tend to meter the face of the model with a gray card or just her face.
