My wife's niece was kind enough to pose for me. This is her first time posing in front of a camera.
This worked out out since this was the first time I have ever had anyone pose for me.

I like all of them!

Technically fine as far as I can see.

The model is quite photogenic and has a real "presence" and projects naturally and gracefully.

In fact, I would love to shoot with her myself!

Well done!

I am curious about her ethnic background - East Indian, Middle Eastern, Hispanic? Whatever it is, she's a fine model!

Ummmm, I'm trying to be gentle and politically correct at the same time here. Does she have a single sister? In other words, nice work. Just goes to show that it is a big plus to have a good working relationship with the model. In this case, closer than normal, but the results reflect in a very positive manner. Nice work.

i am shoCked by your results!! all, except for two pixs (4th and 5th) where in one she's not got her back straight and the other she looks bigger) the results are excellent!!

she's got fanTasTiC eyes and you captured her with ease it seems. good luck and keep shooting!! my hat's off to her too, as for great results, it takes TwO to get the results you desire!!

Let me second the positive comments you received. Since you stated that you are just starting out, let me offer a couple things I think might make these even better. One of the model's best features is her eyes. You are photographing from slightly below eye level in most of these. If you will move the camera slightly above her eye level, you will emphasize her eyes all the more. Secondly, most of these are full face views. Most people have round faces and will be flattered by a two-thirds view of the face. That would be with the face turned slightly so that the camera sees from the corner of one eye around to the other ear. One cheek is thus turned away. The face looks more oval. Another suggestion is regarding lighting. Your light is just slightly to camera right and is pretty flat. I would move it to 45 degrees from her nose. If you did a two-thirds view of the face, I'd move the light away from camera to maintain it at 45 degrees from her nose. This is called short lighting or modified butterfly lightling as it lights the short or narrow view of the face and places the broader view of the face more in shadow. This also makes faces look more oval. Another benefit is that it gives a bit more contrast and definition. These are "portrait" tips and not "glamour" tips. More of a glamour approach is to have the MUA do a lot of what I just described with makeup instead of you doing it with light. You are lucky to have a family member for a model. The good rapport will help. A final comment is on your close working distance. Someone else mentioned it before. I think this adds a lot of pressence and emphasis to the eyes and to the mask of the face. I like it. Hope some of these comments might be of use. Again my second to the things already said. Keep posting.

She's first generation mexican-american. Both of her parents are from Zacatecas, Mexico.

I have met quite a few ladies from Zacatecas here in california and most of them are pretty attractive. Guess it's in the gene's.

I will pass on the complement to her. Funny thing is that up until we we're done looking over the photos yesterday she hated having her picture taken.

Very good to say it was your first shoot you did better than I did on my first. I really like the black and white ones the sharpness and tonal range of the photos are great. look around at what others are doing and try some outdoor stuff, take her in the yard or to the park under a tree. learn the rules and then brek them; just don't have anything coming from her head and you'll be fine.

keep up the good work!!!
