Lenses / Re: Bridge not sharp - why?

I would bet, due to your location that wind and heat would be the culprit... couple that with your low shutter speed.  That would be my bet.  That lens is long, no IS, and everything else I mentioned... I don't see how you could get an ultra sharp shot actually, now that I think about it. 

Just my thoughts

Great camera work.  The only thing I would say is that your transitions are to abrupt sometimes, with the next clips being slightly to short.  Other than the transitions, which in my eyes should be a bit smoother... a wonderful job.

Never photograph a woman straight. I did photo shoot with my wife... the first time.  That was her tip... though it was
expressed just a bit differently.  I would get rid of the last shot as well... kind of looks pre----.  Other than that I agree with the other posts.  You also want to pay attention to light, know where it is.  If it is high in the sky try to bounce light to fill harsh shadows. 

Looks good for the first time.  Good luck to you.

The 50 and 85 are for sure your best bets.  If I were you, and this is just my opinion since you are a beginner, I would make sure I knew exactly how long the runway is. I say this because if you know your lenses, the angle of view for each, it will give you a great idea of where you need to stand in order to get the shots you want or need.  Don't overlook this... hope you understood what I meant as I am outside, freezing, having a cig and my mind... well,  may be frozen too.  If you can use your flash you should be golden. Remember, shutter speeds of 1/250th and faster will freeze motion.  Follow that rule and you will be fine.  As for not being taken seriously... who cares? If you are serious about doing a good job, you will... no matter your equipment.  Get the shots you need to get and don't be afraid to get creative... shots of the footwear when all the models come out at the end... that kind of thing.  The models are going to rock... and you too my friend, will rock it as well.

Good luck.
