Hi, I am  pretty new into shooting. 1yr 3 months in shooting models/people occasionally. But not shooting regularly, been in studio environment 7-8 times. Need to know if I'm doing anything right at all. Fashion photography is what I intend to do. Please check my port, there are some shots.

Thanks in advance.

When I first saw this image all I could see was “Wow have I got a splitting headache”
Because llamas left elbow is toward camera it has a shortening effect on the upper arm, to fix simply move off to side, llamas right arm too straight
Looks like someone went over the top with the whites of the eyes
Hard shadows, move the lights in closer, use large size soft boxes or umbrellas
Stray hairs by llamas left eye could be fixed with Photoshop

Lower chin raise camera, will yield a photo with less up the nose 
Details llamas left thumb nail looks like chipped fingernail polish
Lights look low and small
[Think big diffusers and closer]

Place hips on angle to camera
Try not to cut off hands when possible

This is quite lovely
Watch out for perspiration, try a fan to help llama stay cool
Wish hand were in photo
Lower shoulder toward camera to help neck look as long as possible

Thanks a lot. ALL points noted. It was a rented studio that had only 22" x 22" square soft boxes (Elinchrom kit). All these are shot by those. But yes I'll have find a way to use larger sources. smile
