rather than just critiqueing these images, here's some advice for next time you go outside to shoot:

1. For the most part, especially until you become more experienced, keep the sun behind the model and use fill from the front-- Flash-fill, reflector, whatever. (Yeah, I know you did that in #1.)

2. Shadows can add interesting drama to an image. They can also be as distracting as bright highlights when they simply don't work. (#4 is a good example with the plant's shadow on the over-exposed wife-beater.)

3. Highlights become easily blown-out, especially in digital. If you're using any of your camera's auto-modes this is going to be a perpetual problem; especially when shooting in conditions with a wide exposure range... which is the case with most of your images.


4. Keep shooting! Keep learning! Practice, practice, practice!!!!! Is your pretty model, Isabel, a good friend or g/f? If so, keep dragging her butt out there to shoot.

Thanks for the feed back Jimmy d.

about your comment number 2)

"Shadows can add interesting drama to an image. They can also be as distracting as bright highlights when they simply don't work. (#4 is a good example with the plant's shadow on the over-exposed wife-beater.)"

pic 4 was a good example or a bad example of the use of shadows?

in regard to your comment number 3)

"highlights become easily blown-out, especially in digital. If you're using any of your camera's auto-modes this is going to be a perpetual problem; especially when shooting in conditions with a wide exposure range... which is the case with most of your images."

what would be your recommend solution to this issue?

if you're serious about your photography and you don't already have one, get yourself a light meter, learn to use it, and shoot in manual mode.

use something for fill whenever you can: fill flash, a reflector, whatever.

pay attention to details. it's all in the details. train your eye to scan the viewfinder for those details that work and don't work.

i am serious but haven't made the leap to get a light meter yet, I've been using the info from the camera's light meter and the histograms the camera gives me as well.

any recommendation for a worthwhile light meter to purchase.

i want to take my photography to the next level and i'm very serious so all advice is much appreciated

CamScam: when i was composing that shot and had the model there i saw that shadow and included it on purpose to breakup the white on the shirt. the fact that you find it distracting is interesting. thank you for your feedback.

the histogram should have shown you those blown-out areas. altho i don't know what kind of camera you're using, on a canon those highlights would have been blinking away telling you they're over-exposed.

I use a KONICA MINOLTA VF which is one of the less expensive meters that gets the job done.
