Watch your focus points. Youre getting some great shots of her forehead but her eyes are out of focus, especially in #1.

Julian,

Welcome to GG! hope you find a home, here!

At first blush, it looks like you've used the same image three times... removing the pole and then coloring/tinting the image. Let's talk about the last one, first, since it'll be an easy one... girls don't look good purple. If you're doing some special effects for a stark image, you might be able to get away with the purple. But the bluish-colors just don't look good on the skin (in my former job I'd have described her as deeply cyanotic, and that ain't a good thing!).

Looks like #2 was the original image... the exposure is a bit hot (shiny forehead and nose reflecting the light and the left side of her vest blown out). Cropping tighter magnified the out-of-focus look that Jack mentioned. What would have looked really cool, IMHO, is to put her where you still have the lights behind her, to give something besides a black canvas to look at, and had her where the pole wasn't in the shot... and level the shot as well.

She's a pretty girl and has a bit of Jennifer Garner look going for her. Maybe diffuse the main light next time and work on that focus.

Thanks for sharing the image, and hope you find my comments to be constructive.
Redheads are a favorite subject of mine, as well...

Some nice images. Out of the three of them, I like to 2nd the most. I 'm just not super crazy about the crops on 1 and 3. I agree with Warren about the abundance of shine on her skin. That's what popped out when I first looked at the images. I'm just kind of an unbiased view, since I don't nearly have some of the experience that everyone hear on GG, especially since I prefer to be on the other side of the lens. But keep posting and keep up the good work.

Christian

Hmmm... The first image is out of focus? The second image needs better "composition;" there's too much free space going on and the pole is very distracting... The third image is similar to the first only a different color...

Thanks for all the input everyone. I'll work on some stuff and post some more. When shooting models is it usually better to crop in tight with a medium telephoto lens or does it just depend on certain variables?

Thanks again.

It depends on what your focus is... "Focus on your focus." Ask yourself, "What am I trying to convey to the audience?," each time you take a picture. Then SEE what you are shooting. It's better to have 5 great pictures than 100 bad ones.

I can't remember what his name was, but there was one well known published photographer that used only disposable cameras or a regular 35 mm point and shoot. Rarily did he ever use a flash.

It's not what you use, it's how you use it.
