    I got a friend of a friend to agree to be a practice model for me so I could practice taking some portraits. So here are some results from my first photo shoot!

    Nice set. My only critique is on the first shot: I'd have taken a step to the left, or had him move to his left so the lamppost (?) wasn't coming out of the top of his head.

    I still make that mistake - Not paying enough attention to the background and it's relation to the subject.

    This is a great set, you clearly have an eye for portraiture.

    About right, that planter/head thing is just way too distracting.

    The rest are quite nice.

    Look like fashion magazine shots. Nice work!
