    I've always loved taking portraits but don't get many chances to do so, except at family gatherings. Last week I asked my friend Lola to model for me and she kindly agreed. We spent an hour in the park and had a good laugh. We got a few nice pictures that I really like, but I felt I should have taken my time and not rush it. Also I should practice the manual focusing more!

    I'd like to share with you the ones I like. Please feel free to c&c!

    Beautiful girl coupled with good lenses and a good eye yields a good result :)

    Good job! She's a great model and looks very comfortable in front of the camera. You look like you have a great eye for portraiture and I think you should ask her for another shoot. It always gets better the second time. Looking forward to more!
