So I went out with a few of my friends from school today and worked on my portrait shooting so I could get some practice in before next week when I go do my girlfriends senior pictures at the beach. I just want some constructive criticism as to things I could change up to get an even better result because this was my first time. I used a 430exII for fill as the sunlight in some places was absolutely brutal. In my Photojournalism class we have been practicing using natural light but I have yet to find a healthy balance. Anyways, Just help me out with somethings I could try to yield some better results, although I am quite happy with what I have produced, i still feel like they are missing something.
