This image is kind of a test to see some new things I want to start doing with my portraits in the future. I have a lot more photos that I will upload at a later time but please let me know what you think of this photo so far.

the shoot was just for fun of course

I like the middle one the best, but all of them have some appeal. You asked for what I think, so I'll tell you.

I really like the colour and depth of field in all the photos, but the first pose seems awkard to me... might just be a personal taste. Her hand is a little distracting in the third, but really, relatively minor stuff.

You did a great job! What were some of the new things you wanted to start doing?

The second is my fave i think i would have brought the camera down just a bit. But it is just a personal preferance

I think the tilt works well on the first shot as she's leaning, but on the third it looks a little uncomfortable because it's tilted the other way. I agree with Darth about the second.

Also they seems a shade high key, but perhaps that's what you were aiming for.

What are the new things you were trying to test?
