What I like is that you have captured her natural smile and how you've lit her face. Her pose, however, is too slouched thus eliminating her neck. Having her back straighter, with her head then turned toward the camera will allow her hair to frame her face but her neck as well. I think having her hair behind her face would also work well. The background gives her hair too much of a green cast.

I noticed that the picture you posted with the reply also has a green tint to the blonde hair. It may not be a background problem. Are you shooting with film or digital? If with film, I think the color temperture of your film is not matching that of your lighting. If you shoot digital, I can't offer any advice since I only use film.

I noticed that green tint as well here at work but at home it didnt look that severe. Thanks for pointing it out though. I shot those with digital in a basement studio of a friend. He shoots under hot lights with regular 75 watt bulbs. This was my first attempt at hot lights and I discovered that I didnt like them at all. Will be shooting that models sister this afternoon in my studio. Thanks again.

I like to shoot models with a center weighted or even spot focus mode to get the eyes. If I miss, a little PS to the eyes makes for a better image.
Let's see more.

Thanks for the tip. I believe my camera is set to use a center spot focus...Is that what you mean? or should it be set differently. I actually like to use the manual focus but my eyes seem to lie to me alot...

Others have mentioned some good points and the green cast so I'll let those points stand.

I think the composition could have been better. There is considerably more space behind her than in front of her. I think it would be much better the other way around. Put the space in front of her next time. Or crop the image to take some of the "behind" space out.

I also sense a little "deer in the headlights" tension in this image. Just something in the mouth and eyes. That can be overcome by establishing rapport with the model. Yes, it takes a few minutes, but doing so can improve images significantly. No magic to it... just talk and get to know each other a bit.

Just my opinion...
