    i like picture #3 and #4, esp high key on #3, perhaps it will be better if #3 is not looking directly to the camera? Its only my opinion. For #1 i think the model was not comfortable with the post as she seems little unnatural in her post. And don't forget turning her head like that can cause double chin! Maybe look slightly upward will help.. All and all is only my personal opinion, overall it is a beautiful series of photograph, the location and model blend well too!

    Regards,

      I don't know if your intention is to do 'environmental portraiture' or portrait on location. Either one failed in my opinion. Composing with too much of the backdrop as in 1&2, 3 and 4 only dilute the attention on your model and spoil your portraits. That abandoned structure is not a nice environmental scene to be used but a nice backdrop if you shoot your portraits 'tight' and use the rough concrete to your advantage.

      I like the composition of 5 but you carelessly allowed the concrete column in the background to 'grow out of her head'. Changing you angle would have been the solution.

      Nevertheless keep it up.

        Hello Noordin,

        thanks for the feedback, actually i was planning on portrait on location....
        but on the meaning of the portraits is "tight" is?

        as for the composition of 5 , definitely didn't realise the concrete column above her head, thanks for the guidance as well.

        will remember your guidance on it.

          Agreed with noordin. Just to elaborate a little. Tight in this case means your subject/model takes up most of the space in the framing. When you frame the subject so loosely, (opposite of tight) in every photo in this series, then the whole series is weak. You need some tight shots and some close ups. Also when you frame it so loose, you would have to print a very large photo to even see the face of the subject or model clearly.

            Hi!!
            For portraits # 3, for example..maybe you can take a look at that photo again. With the nice background and less clutter it can be a good portraits. Like all the sifus said, tight shots and close up. Start with that photo for example. Look at that photo and try to exclude 'the clutter' (e.g the sky) and try to crop it according to what you think is better shot.
            I am also still learning about taking good portraits. I hope we can learn from one another.

              I have to go with uncle Noordin on this one. We all cannot comprehend what is it that you are trying to achieve. a little tip from me, start on the easy ones first. Get your lighting fundamentals correct, read more on why people take photos of other people and what the pictures are used for. Good luck

                  special thanks to eddieputera,

                  as of right now, i'm still very weak in lighting fundamentals, i will go ahead with your advice as well to this.
                  and as of reading more on why people takes photos of others and pictures are used for.. i will try to grasp the meaning through it.
