Hi Folks, I'm just starting out in Photography.
Would appreciate comments, tips and advice as to how I can improve.

My biggest difficulty is posing the model and telling her exactly what to do.
My biggest temptation is to use flash and control everything rather than try to work with the light already there. Anyway, here is my work.

Glad to see a newbie!!! my advice..no matter what..STAY PUT,keep posting, open your eyes and your mind to suggestion....as far as posing your models..I am far from an expert and actually really timid when it comes to telling models what I want(something I need to fix)so I've been studying posing guides,magazines and just watching people in everyday life..its amazing how you start to look at people from a photography view point..wow that girl over there pumping gas has a cool stance.....stuff like that.....watch what is attractive and what isnt.....then try to remember it and convey it to your model....its been my experience that some models have certain poses that rock for them...and other poses, that looked way better in the book!!!

First off, congratulations on starting! That's one of the hardest parts.

I'm still a noob too, so I'll just say what pops into my head about your image. I'd say the first thing I see is that I wish her chin wasn't cut off. It might've been nice for this image to have been shot vertically. Also, like you mentioned about available light, I'm thinking drop the flash and use a reflector if you need to outside. Sometimes strobes are nice outside, but if you're just starting I'd say just use what's available outdoors first, get good with that (maybe I should follow my own advice! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]), and go from there.

I dunno if this helped at all, and hopefully others with more experience will post, but that's my 2¢. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

First off, welcome to GG! A few pointers, learn to use manual well, and don't be afraid to experiment. I tend to use availble light more often than using an aritfical light source, but that's me, if you like flash, or studio lights, go for it. Good luck, keep at it, and don't be afraid to screw up in the beginning.
