I have been trying to improve my photography skills by reading other posts in this forum and incorporating the critques into my photographs. I have finally gotten up the courage to ask for a critique for my own work. Don't be gentle but please be constructive.

Thanks

Welcome in from the shadows Bob! These are actually not too bad. Exposure is good and composition is okay. Lighting wise I like the horizontal image better. The vertical one looks like direct flash on camera. If you can manage it you need to find a way to get the flash off of the camera. The lighting on the horizontal is much softer. The crop on the horizontal image works okay as is, but I think I would have prefered a little bit looser crop showing just a little more of the model.

Here is one of mine.

Thanks for the valuable input. I will work at getting the flash off the camera and improve the lighting. The crop on the horizontal photograph was just an asthetic choice I made, but I see your point.

Thanks Again.

Bob

An inexpensive site I've found with good quality lighting gear is Flash Zebra. They have off camera ttl cords and even some cheap wireless units, although the wireless ones are not ttl capable.

Bob, the first photo is pretty good. I would only offer the model to sit up straight and move her shoulders back a little bit.

The second one, in your processing you should of taken the tiny bit of tooth showing out.

Thanks for the feedback Gene. I will pay more attention to my model's posture and also on my post processing.
