happy) with your end results. This is definitely an important step towards taking better pictures.
We feel your strongest image in this selection is the portrait with the ferns . The subtlety and softness of the lighting really complement the model’s expression. The lightest parts of the image are the model’s face and hands, which provide focus for the viewer. And you’re sticking to the rule of thirds, with the fern, face and hands all in different sections of the photo, allowing the eye to flow naturally through it.
The head-and-shoulders portrait with the orange background  is also nice and follows this composition almost identically, but the back light (if a flash) seems to be gelled orange and the key light (on the model’s face) seems to be bare. It would be nice to see this shot with a different coloured filter on the key light (maybe blue) to juxtapose the warmth in the background.
In your outdoors shot  the fog definitely adds to the mood and again complements the expression of the model (you seem to have this nailed!), but we wonder whether it might ‘feel’ nicer on the eye if the composition were to be tweaked just a little. If you’d used the power line cables to draw lines in towards the model more clearly, and the model was placed on the left third of the frame, the viewer’s eye would ‘enter’ from the right and end up at the model. Currently we find ourselves following the cables in, coming to the model slightly below them, and then drfiting around the open space on the left, before moving on to another photo. Also, it might be interesting to see some (subtle) flash lighting up the model, to brighten up her features and draw the focus back to her, but we appreciate that this might affect the moody feel – which is a key ingredient of all your images. Keep up the good work!
