Hello to all! New member here and would like to thank the mods for running such a wonderful board full of endless talent and true art. Here are some shots of a friend that I would like to have some C&C on please. These were taken with a Rebel XTi Canon 50mm 1.8 lens. I look forward to all the responses! Thanks!

Well done - for one of your first outings.

I shoot with the same equipment at times and love the 50mm canon lens for portraits.

You picked a very safe lighting situation where there is very flat light and therefore you have no glaring lighting issues, but the result is a rather flat safe image.

I would prefer in both images to see the girl lifting her nose more so her iris is not partially hidden by her upper eyelid. This would also slightly improve the lighting on her face.

I seldom like the shot that comes out of these cameras - unless you have it set up specifically for each and every situation there is usually a need for some white balancing and minimal processing in photoshop to create an exciting image. I would love to see the shots after you have done some of this work.

Shots are good. I would like to see some contrast added though. As mentioned the lighting is a bit flat. I also feel they are a touch underexposed.

Other than that.....nice shots.

Needed a catchlight. A reflector would have helped for this.
Cheers,

Those little shadows just under the eyes... not good.

Needed a reflector of some kind or a lighter foreground to kick some light back up under the eyes. Almost anything to reflect light, including a piece of a newspaper, would have helped a lot.

Then there's the reflections in the glasses... I still haven't figured out what that reflection in the first image is. Needs to be fixed.
