The image is flat, probably due to on camera flash. If you bounce the flash off of the ceiling that will at least give some shadows and dimensions to the shot. The subject blends into the background. You need something to add more light to the background. A bounced flash would help there. You have a hot spot on the forehead and chin caused probably by the direct flash. The eyes are not sharp. In a portrait of a pretty girl you usually want sharp eyes. so focus on the eyes. With this model, you need to work on the posing of the head to avoid the double chin syndrome. That's all a matter of posing.

Thank you for these helpful hints on this work. This was taken in a lounge area during an event so all I had was my camera flash and available light.

Event photography can be very challenging since often you have little control of many of the details. One thing that you can experiment with is to get one of those little gadgets that go over the flash head that will give some extra diffusion and make the light source a bit larger. In the old days, we just used to rubber band a white card to the top edge of the flash. They now make gizmos that will work with built in flash and a shoe mounted flash that will help for these situations.

Here's a link to reviews of a bunch of such flash modifiers that might be just the ticket for your event work:

Scroll down to the section on Flash accessories.

Here a link to a video that shows how to build your own card

Cheers,

Thank you very much for these two links.. Event photography is a bit tough because of the variables involved but the hints and tips I gain from this site as well as others will take more of the risk out of not getting the right shot so to speak

Thank you once again
