    Perhaps there’s a little too much room above and around her head – fill the frame! And keep working on how to coach your subjects to give good expressions. Personally, I prefer portraits with the subject looking into the camera, but that’s just me. Perhaps it’s harder to do well, I don’t know. But I think it pays off, when you capture someone right in their soul. To me, candids are for parties and interactions between two or more people, or perhaps capturing someone at work in their element.. If I have a human being alone with me for a portrait shoot, I want their soul to hit my sensor when the shutter opens, because a portrait session is the unique time that it’s possible to capture that. Why miss that opportunity? And that’s in the eyes, dead on, and in their expression, which I can coach and play around with. That’s just my two cents. Great light and everything. Beautiful photo.
