Street Portraiture

Street PortraitureHi Tracy,
What a wonderful image of this girl.Smile You have got great eye contact with the subject and a lovely natural smile.
The background is not too distracting and well out of focus.
How could you improve the image? Apart from a bit more space above her heard, two points that would improve the image IMHO.
1. A crop to the left of the image would remove the distracting highlight at the top and would also improve the composition, moving the girl more to the left and having all the negative space on the right.
2. The hard shadow made by her nose, is also distracting. This could be corrected by using a reflector to "fill in" and soften the shadow, or you could take a couple of steps to the right so that the sun is lighting your subject more evenly, and then getting the girl to look at you.
I hope this helps,
Tim

Dancer StretchesHi Stuart,

I like the low view point, and the way the hands are posed.Smile
Adding some rim lighting would help separate Claire from the background.

Kayleigh LushAnother great imageSmile
Great expression from Kayleigh.
One slight niggle (if I may be so bold!) the bangle on Kayleigh's rised arm draws my eye away from the eyes and face.

Jess is posh

Jess is poshHi Stuart,

Jessica is a attractive model and that dress shows her off well.
A couple of points. I find the background distracting, because a) The pattern, and b) Jessica is standing too close to it.
If you have got the room to do so, have your model about 3 -4ft away from the background so that it can be placed out of focus.
The lighting of the face, may not be to evertyboby's taste, you might want to experiment with a) the placement of the lights (in relation to the model) and b)your light ratios.

BryGood lighting, I like the "attitude" from the model.
A tighter crop to focus on the face, I find the arms look awkward and distract from the face.
