Shadows, shadows, shadows...I would not worry about your camera limitations...good results can come from inexpensive equipment. I would be concerned abou the lighting--there are harsh shadows all over and her left side is not lit enough. Try reflecting the light back into her face/chest area--and watch the hair...it is causing some difficult lighting situations for you in your two posts...you'll get it!

One more thought...not trying to blast you here..is that her hand and shoulder are blown out--very hard to see any definition in her hand vs clothing.

To be brutally honest they look like my first attemepts.

The previous poster is correct you do not need ot worry yet about equipment - as it by itself will not help.

A few pointers that may help you.

When using natural light sources there is usually only one source of light - the sun. Do not let the model point her nose between the sun and the camera. This will eliminate the shadow on the nose and light her face reasonably well.

The rule would be the light source and the camera should both be on the same side of her nose.

Try to narrow the gap between the camera and the light source - I e the sun is behind you not so far to the side of both of you. This will reduce the amount of shadow and the degree of contrast you have to deal with.

Try to shadow her from the full force of the sun as it is often far too bright and will cause to great a contrast between the bright and darker spots. She is better to be where the light is difused or it is reflected.

Bottom line - Spend all your time studying how light and possibly the lack of it, is affecting your shots. Since cameras take photos of light - it is the one thing every photographer learns even more about every day even if they think they have it licked. .

I agree with all about the camera. I own a Kodak DC-3400 and a DC-4800 and they both take good photos. I now have an Olympus E-300 and it certainly has broadened my possibilities, but I still use the Kodaks as well. I guess the point is use what you have to you can afford what you want and make every photo shoot a learning opportunity.
