Thanks everyone for the tips! Very much appreciated and will make notes of it!

A couple of responses here:

-I forgot to mention that I have yet to touch PS and am trying to stay away as much as possible. I like to keep the image of the real person. Not taking out acne/scars or whatever may appear on a face. I am sure one day I will have no choice but to dive in. But for now, i want to keep the image as true as possible. Like the image that someone posted where he took it into PS. To me it looks blown out and just can tell it was post processed like crazy. I appreciate the help though!

-Still working on that posing thing. That last image of her squatting down(looking back it does seem as if she is using the bathroom) she wanted badly.

-I do need to watch out for those low angle shots. A couple of times i setup for the shot and had to go over to her to adjust the dress to not show to much. In those really low angle shots I was actually laying on my back on the ground shooting.

-I noticed some of the soft/just not in focus shots when i first got them into lightroom. I know how the triangle works with iso/shutter speed/aperture and how the aperture affects the background and such. However, I made a rookie mistake in not changing my aperture much at all. For almost all of these shots it was at 1.8 when for the wider shots i should have bumped it up to keep her sharp in focus. Definitely something i noticed and kicked myself for.

-Definitely could have used a fill flash in some shots. Will keep that in mind!

Yeah that's one of the things I noticed after i got them loaded into lightroom. Will definitely be more careful next time. Like the one of her sitting on the bench, that was just a bad call butting off the bottom of her boot/foot. The swing, that was a challenging one. Focused on one swing and captured on another. Like a focus/recompose, she was just doing the recompose.

Will be posting a lot more here!!!

I also have a blog that I post a photo on everyday which mainly has landscape/architecture shots on it so far.

Hey everyone, have not posted to much here on the forums but I visit everyday. Back in March I picked up my Rebel T3i and of course the 50 1.8. This past Sunday I did my first actual portrait photoshoot with a friend. If you have a minute take a look and let me know what you think. Hopefully I am allowed to link to outside websites? It is my Flickr account. I noticed some mistakes that I made after the fact but anxious to hear what everyone has to say. Thank for your time!

Hey everyone,

I am looking for some advice on my photography work. I am still new to it all. Bought my T3i at the beginning of March. I started up a small blog just over a week ago and have been posting one photo per day on it. Please let me know what you think of my photos if you have a minute. Thanks for any advice/tips!
