I like shot number three and the lighting. But for some reason the model does not look comfortable and that will show in your photos...

Kevin # 3 is your best image do to the direction of your lighting, how ever it would have been even better if you photographed the other side of her face. You are making good use of depth of field in this image also. The light is diffused and is flattering. # 2 is very nice also but if you used a gobo to block a little light on the subjects right side (camera left) your would have excellent results. It's two flat. If your are using a flash over the camera reduce the power a good half stop.
Image number 1 the subjects shoulders are facing the camera, seldom a good image produce from this pose. Give her a turn one way or another and careful of the bridge of the nose cutting into the far eye, and watch your chin height, another reason #3 is better. Composition is another one of your strong points. Keep up the good work. I'll try to watch your you and help out where I can.

The composition and exposure is excellent in all three of these. In #1 her chin hight is a little too high. We generally try to avoid looking up the models nostrils. I can't tell what photoshop you have done on these, and that is generally a good thing. Her skin texture still looks nice and real. Contrast in the images is good and exposure appears to be right on. I think you on the right track! Looking forward to seeing more.

I agree that #3 is the best shot... The only thing I would like to see there is a bit brighter catchlight. Everything else works well.

On the second the angle is real bad as it looks like she has a bald spot...

The first shot would be great if she would ge looking more towards camera. (down a bit and to her right) The other thing you could have done is to use a polarizer. You would have gotten deeper blues and better overall contrast. The colors would have popped a bit more as well.

You mention Photoshop. If you can try this.... If you shot in RAW then it's easy if not try opening the JPG in camera RAW and do the following.... Raise the exposure more than you normally would, on this shot a guess would be about a stop up. The ratchet up recovery to bring the blown highlights into range again. I bring it up as high as 60 or 70. Then raise the fill light a bit, to about 30. Last raise the blacks to boost contrast. Play with this a bit, settings will vary but play around.... This will give you a rich, bold, higher contrast look. If you tone it down to taste you might end up with a better look to the shot....
