well I think this one needs a re take...sorry, but she looks a little psyco eyed to me...but if you like the expression you might take the dark circles out from under the eyes in PS and the darkness over her upperlip gives the impresson of a mustache.

JMO..

Don.

Shooting it that tight will highlight anything that is out of place. The flyaway hair running across her face becomes distracting to the viewer. Pay attention to detail, it is the little things that will get you. Keep shooting and let us see more.

A few suggestions
1. Remove neck crease by having her turn her head until it disappears
2. Remove blemishes in photoshop
3. Up the contrast in the image
4. Remove stray hairs

Honestly, I'm not sure how B/W photog. works - but it seems that there is a lot of grey values in this image. I think that if there were more contrast in it, it would pop a lot more...

Hi Ahmad,
Pretty girl.
I notice that the 3 pictures you have posted so far have all been in Landscape format and tightly cropped.
This can sometimes work but requires very careful composition to make good use of the space that inevitably exists around the model. I don't think you have acheived this in the images I have seen so far.
I think my first suggestion to you would be to turn your camera on its side for your portraits. There is a reason why they call it "portrait format".

Looks like you are making good use of the natural light, with some reflection to light her face.

More care with the stray hairs while you are shooting is the easier than Photoshopping them out later.

Look forward to seeing more.

Rule 10 picture

Pretty girl. In this photo her eyes are a good focus point, but you have hidden them in the shadows. Bounce a little reflected light into her face to improve the highlights and get rid of some of the dark shadows (simple white card should work, high and to model left). In PS try masking the eyes and applying a Gaussian blur filter (on it own layer)set somewhere between 12 and 15, then decrease the layer's opacity to +/- 20% to bring out the eyes. Lose the flyaway hairs in the mouth and face.
Easier fix is a reshoot if possible. Reorient the image to a "portrait" orientation. Shoot the model straight on from a camera angle a little higher than her head. If you want a view "from an angle", move the camera to the model's left, don't turn the model's head because you change the light and shadows. Apply reflected lighting suggestions as mentioned above and see what you think.
