I like them both, however they need to be composed higher up in the frame or made square format to crop of the space at the top of the frame.

Two very nice shots Mal. Was it a good day? Was hoping to get but circumstances conspired against me.

nice shots and agree with cabstar. I seem to oft get shots like this and then crop them.

The colour one also gets my vote as does the crop/ frmaing suggestion(s)
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

Thanks for your comments , taking note on the cropping , but I'm not too fussed on square portraits ,was my first time in a studio environment and was a bit intimidated about sticking my camera into someones face lol
will know better next time

Aye Alan it was good , i was a bit intimidated by some of the people with their high end cameras and lenses until i seen a table with a row of lovely vintage MF lenses this was a display by an award winning photographer showing off some of his work and gear , so spent a good while talking to him about lens hunting lol
Its a nice studio , they run something called "the creative circle" its a chance for photographers to get experience shooting with studio lighting and its also gives the models the opportunity to build up a portfolio, plus you can also process and print off the images while your there,

for 15 its a cheap night out , plus there is food and drinks available so Ill be definitely be trying this out in the new year .

Very nice portraits! I like both, but more so the second one.

Twitter | Someone said time-lapse?
Pentax K5 | Samsung N9005 | DA 18-55 WR | DA 35 2.4 | DA 50 1.8
Tamron 10-24 SP | Tamron 90 2.8 Macro | Tamron 70-300 Macro
Samyang 85 1.4 ...and a few other manual lenses older than me.
