Photographer's Request for Critique

My first attemp at glamour and modeling!!!

Mariana is going into the 12th grade this August, she is gifted academecally and a very hard worker. I met her at my elderly relatives home were she serves as a homehealth care worker with her mother. Her mother does not speak English and Mariana is the official translator. This was a Sunday morning and as all her family she is also a Jehova Witness and was on her way to church. She ask me details about the 40D and we started tallking and shoting. It was lots of fun and she love her images. Thank you for looking. Comments/rates appreciated.

She is very down to earth and friendly.

Mariana was basically shy and slowly started moving with confidence.

Mariana is exploring many posibilities for her future carreer, she will complete a Bachelors degree in Science with the intention to attend Medical School. However she is also looking at the Physician Assitant program in the local college, which could be an alternative to he medical career. Her mother works for a clinic as a HealthHome care worker and Mariana helps her out.

The audience which include her mother, Neni and Popi help her out with encouragement!!!

Her movements started flowing after all the positive attention.

Popo keep saying that she was the must beautiful girl in the world and that made her smile and make different expressions.

As the session progressed her mother keep saying that next time she will ware a more attractive dress!

Her hair was a big attraction to me!!!

I was in heaven with such a wonderful gorgeous girl modeling in a moments notice!

I was not about to end the session!

Yes we all have to say goodbye at one time, nothing is for ever!!!

I keep shotting until her mother insisted for the 5th time that she needed to go, that they were late for Church, she stay a little longer and I follow her to the car!

jorge fernandez , July 25, 2010; 10:21 A.M.

The main picture is the best, Nice relaxed pose. Nice light on the face. Good sharp eyes. Very good detail of hair and  perfect skin tone. <P> Light on the white blouse is too much and distracts. It is over sharpened and shows in her eyes and particularly eye lashes.  <P> Rest of the pictures are snapshots in harsh light.  Some can be cropped and salvaged. Regards, Ifti

Hola Jorge,

el trabajo realizado es excelente, no solo por las tomas y las diferentes perspectivas, sino también por su contenido, una descripción de los hechos fantásticos. Marianita posee una atractiva personalidad y un natural talento para posar.

Muchos Saludes y felicitaciones por mostrar este excellente trabajo.


PD: A mediados de Agosto o un poco antes voy a comenzar a mostrar mis fotos nuevamente después de una pausa indeseada de mis trabajos, gracias por tus alertadoras palabras.
